I'm evaluating BlazeBlogger to replace my current site (largely now
empty after a database loss) at www.paraplegicracehorse.net

How are binaries handled? I often post photos in my current blog (at
blogger.com) and I will want this ability in the future.

Thanks,

Hi Charles,

Many thanks for your interest in my software. As for your question,
BlazeBlogger tries to keep things as simple as it can, which is why it
does not handle (at least not at the moment) any attachments on its
own. What you usually do is that you put your file (image, archive,
whatever you want to refer to from your blog post) in a directory
within the directory structure of the blog and then use the %root%
placeholder in a relative path to this file. For example, to link to
files/blazeblogger-1.3.0.tar.gz from your blog post, you can use the
following code snippet:

<p>Download the <a href="%root%/files/
blazeblogger-1.3.0.tar.gz">latest version</a>.</p>

I know this is not ideal, but I like simple solutions.

Thanks,
Jaromir Hradilek

Actually, that's a great solution and very simple. Could you add that
to documentation? (I always RTFM before asking questions.)

How would this work in markdown?

[FileID]:%root%/files/FileID ?

Also, I really need to sit down and improve the documentation to
include all this info.

Apparently, we were thinking about the same thing. :)

This should not be a problem. I don't have markdown installed on my
laptop right now, but I quickly verified at http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/dingus
that Markdown does not complain or replace placeholders. When you run
blaze-make, all BlazeBlogger's placeholders are then replaced as
expected.

Well, there's only one way to find out for sure. Thank goodness for
blaze-edit if it doesn't work the first time. ;)

It didn't work with markdown. The link will have to be done with HTML.

/me takes a mental note to test and document it when he's on his
desktop.
