Creating ‘After the jump’ Summaries With Blogger In Live Writer

Google have recently added excerpts to Blogger, which Live Writer can deal with just fine. The only problem is Live Writer doesn’t know that Blogger supports this. Now, there are a couple of hacks you can do to enable the excerpt button for your Blogger account in Live Writer, but even then it doesn’t work 100% and still requires tweaking in the source view.

To combat this, I have written just a small plug-in for Live Writer that just makes it a one-click job. Just choose where you want to split the post, then click Blogger Excerpt:

This plug-in can be downloaded from my SkyDrive area and should be put in c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Writer\Plugins (or “Program Files (x86)” if on x64 systems).
