Testing out Lekhonee WordPress client

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Alhamdulillaah, I’ve discovered a new WordPress blogging client packaged with Fedora – namely, Lekhonee. There aren’t a lot of formatting options, but it appears you can post using HTML, so that’s a plus, I think. Let’s see how it goes.

$PATH in Fedora 10

[basilgohar@beta ~]$ echo $PATH
/usr/lib/qt-3.3/bin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin\
:/home/basilgohar/bin

Note: This is for future reference as I try to make some progress on an old project.  I do not think the last value is a default for Fedora, but rather, something added later.  If someone knows otherwise, please correct me!

Update: I’m starting to dislike fixed-width templates…corrected the last $PATH value so it will fit on my blog without overflowing into CSS “Elsewhere”.

Update 2: Ahhh!  WordPress!  WYSIWYG, not WIWIWYG (What I Want is Why You Get)!
