ecto 2.3.9

Wow, is it just me or does the new version of [ecto]( fly!?! I’m used to clicking the “Publish” button and waiting while it goes through the motions of setting the categories and posting to my blog. I didn’t change anything on my server (I don’t think) and it’s pinging the same sites as it always has. Yet, now posting with ecto is taking a fraction of the time it used to.

I’ve all but given up blogging from anything but a browser on a PC. All of the clients are terrible. Ecto for Windows means well, and the developer is a nice guy. I paid for a license that I don’t use all that often. The versions I’ve tried are just too buggy for regular use and they’re missing some of the finer touches that the Mac version has.


  1. Really no faster here. The little progress window is gone, though, so maybe you’re confusing actual progress with the missing progress window?

    No, I didn’t use the progress window before. It’s faster. But maybe it’s due to changes with my host and not ecto, I don’t know.

    Have you tried Qumana by any chance? WYSIWYG, like Ecto, but free. Works with MT. Let me know if you have any questions.

  4. Judi Sohn says:

    Yes, I tried Qumana. No, it’s nothing like Ecto. It’s buggy, it’s not elegant, and it doesn’t preview Markdown. Probably fine for quick down & dirty posts, but if I’m going to post like that I might as well just do it in the browser.

    Sorry, you asked.
