(This entry is part of the i.ph Blogger Program)
I posted something earlier using i.ph's conventional posting method via my user's control panel. Posting is fairly simple. Type in your subject and entry and use the provided "buttons" to format your entry. The editor is based on an opensource project.
i.ph has the EXTENDED PART feature which allows you to divide your blog entry so that your whole article would not clutter the mainpage. This is useful for very long entries. I haven't figured out yet if this feature is compatible with EMAIL POSTING. But maybe the guys at domains.ph could tweak some codes to make this feature available via EMAIL POSTING.
You could attach Photos easily via your i-gallery or upload directly from your desktop. There are also a pelothra of plugin in the control panel.
Local and Google Keywords
Use this to specify search keywords related to your blog entry.
SmartyPants is a free web publishing plug-in that easily translates plain ASCII punctuation characters into “smart” typographic punctuation HTML entities.
# Straight quotes ( " and ' ) into “curly” quote HTML entities
# Backticks-style quotes (``like this'') into “curly” quote HTML entities
# Dashes (“--” and “---”) into en- and em-dash entities
# Three consecutive dots (“...”) into an ellipsis entity
You'll be able to post formatted entries without knowing much about HTML. Complete documentation can be found on i.ph's control panel
Most of us don't need these plugins but they're nice additions to the feature-packed interface of i.ph's blogging interface. Users can also specify on what date and time their post should appear on their blog.
You could also specify Trackback URLs for other blogs. Currently, trackback for your own i.ph blogs is off to prevent trackback spams. Speaking of spams, i.ph offers spam protections for your tagboards and comments. Neat.
i.ph's posting via its control panel is much better than the email posting feature. I'll give it a 5 out of 5 for this feature since it's so simple that a n00b can post his first blog in a matter of minutes.
