## Org2Blog v1.1.11 Released

I just tagged Org2Blog v1.1.11. It’s got a few nice changes for easier blogging. It got a lot of changes to make it easier to contribute and report issues. After this, all of the work will bring it up to the current version of Emacs and Org mode. That work will begin in the v1.2.0 branch. For the sake of simplicity, consider it unstable (no matter how unlikely, that is where issues could show up). When it is ready, I’ll post it for people who want to test it out.

Happy Blogging!

Here is the change summary:

Since its v1.1.0 release on 2019-10-13 there’ve been enough updates that are worth reviewing if you haven’t already:

## Just Released Org2Blog v1.1.1 A Correction Release

This is a correction release that addresses:

• Some cyclic dependencies
• Not handling generating artifacts updates when in the buffer

It shouldn’t have any impact on it’s use. Please let me know if it does.

Happy Blogging!

## Try Out Org2Blog v1.1.0 Using This Package

Right now you can’t try out an Org2Blog v1.1.0 package from MELPA because it isn’t yet building using Org2Blog’s new recipe. Eventually the pull request will get merged. Once it does I will push the changes. However, you can still try out v1.1.0 using a package.

If you’ve been waiting to try Org2Blog v1.1.0 using a package then you can download it here just download the tar file. After downloading it you can install it from Emacs by typing M-x package-install-file and then choosing the file org2blog-master.tar you just downloaded.

The package manager should install the required packages but if it doesn’t it will warn you and you can manually install them. Depending on how you configured package-archives and package-archive-priorities everything should go just fine. Let me know if it doesn’t.

Checkout the README.org now included within the package.

Happy blogging

## Interested in testing Org2Blog v1.1.0?

Org2Blog v1.1.0 has some improvements to it. The README has a lot more in it. There is a user interface (Hydra) now that makes all of the features very visible and easy to use. Some code was refactored and some features were implemented and completed. There are a lot more status and other messages to help make sense of what the application is doing. There is a Test Plan and notes about Contributing.

Tonight I finished coding and testing Org2Blog 1.1.0 as far as I can take it. You know the point where you lose the ability to see the artifacts anymore? That is where I am. Everything seems to work, I’ve been using it and “it works on my computer” lol. It is ready for folks that feel like trying out the new version. Folks who are patient and curious and pretty OK with bugs ranging from the dumb to the painful along with suggesting improvements for better documentation and even new functionality might enjoy this sort of thing.

The source code is here. If you want to try it out from a package here is the latest build.

## Blogging With Emacs🐃 From Org2Blog🦄 to WordPress

Blogging from Org2Blog to WordPress just works and that is just about all there is to it. All of the markup works. Even MathJax works:

Brad told me that this is the most beautiful equation in mathematics:

Euler’s Formula: $$e^{ \pm i\theta } = \cos \theta \pm i\sin \theta$$

Thank you Jon for showing how to set this up in this post and this post and this post.

The only addition is that these instructions uses a more actively maintained plugin.

• Test it out using these (and more) examples
• The word LaTeX in Math Mode (notice the italics)
• $$\LaTeX$$
• The word LaTeX in Text Mode (notice the lack of italics)
• $$\mathrm{\LaTeX}$$
• Inline
• $$\sum_{i=0}^n i^2 = \frac{(n^2+n)(2n+1)}{6}$$
• Equation
• $\sum_{i=0}^n i^2 = \frac{(n^2+n)(2n+1)}{6}$
