how to write on websites using your own text editor

When you are writing comments and editing text areas on website it can some times be very frustrating.  Many websites have horrible text settings for managing comments, and then the rest of the time you’re afraid to write anything long and worthwhile because one false refresh and it’s all wiped.  Thanks to a small company, called docwhat, we now have a Firefox add-on that will let us use our own text editors to write on web pages.

The extension is called It’s All Text and what it does it create a small edit button at the bottom write of any large writable text box on a website.  When you click the edit button it will open up your favorite text editor (notepad, notepad++, word.. etc)  and then allow you to continue writing there.  The really cool thing is that instead of having to copy and paste your message, all you have to do is Save in your text editor and the text will automatically be synced to the website form.  Pretty groovy!

Download the Firefox Add-On here from the @Mozilla official add-ons site.

Once you install it if you’re having trouble getting it working you’ll need to go into the it’s Preferences and set a default editor.

    Does operating a well-established website such as yours take a massive
    amount work? I am completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal every day.

    and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or
    tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.

    I think that what you posted was actually very logical. However, consider
    this, suppose you were to write a killer post title? I mean,
    I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added something
    that makes people want more? I mean Firefox Users Write Website Comments Using Notepad is a little plain. You could peek at
    Yahoo’s front page and see how they write post
    titles to get viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab
    readers excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might make
    your website a little bit more interesting.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for
    about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.

    I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
