After receiving several messages from my friends about problems with my blog and their RSS readers I decided today to check that out. I’m using SharpReader as my RSS reader and I’ve noticed that my posts just don’t get syndicated for some unknown reason.
The way I’m posting messages to my (das)Blog is via “Write & Save & Write” system, meaning – I write for 10 minutes, un-check “Publish” & “Syndicate” checkboxes and hit the “Post to Weblog” button. Then I click Edit on the post and continue writing. After I finish writing, I check the “Publish” & “Syndicate” checkboxes and hit the “Post to Weblog”.
After playing for 2 minutes with dasBlog and trying to add\edit posts I came to the conclusion: You should *never* uncheck the “Syndicate” checkbox. This isn’t reversible for some strange reason so if I want to continue using my “Write & Save & Write” system the only checkbox I should uncheck is “Publish”.
Now all my old posts that were un-“Syndicate” for the first time, can not be re-syndicated.
I think that I should let Scott Hanselman know about this feature\bug, what say you ?
