A feature in Writer that not everyone knows about (yet :) ) is it's support for publishing pages. This support is (to my knowledge) currently limited to Wordpress and Typepad. Writer does use the Wordpress API for publishing pages, so any other providers out there that would like to add support just need to implement the page portion of the API and then use the Writer Provider API to notify Writer that pages are supported.
If you are using Wordpress or Typepad today, you are in luck- here is a quick tour of pages in Windows Live Writer.
The option for creating a new page is available. You can find the option in the File menu or as a drop down on the 'New' button.
The option to open existing pages is also available in the Open dialog. Use the radio button at the top to select 'Pages' and you will be shown a list of pages that you can open.
The editing experience using Writer is pretty much identical. Writer has applied my template to the editing experience, so I am presented with a great WYSIWYG editing experience. I can use all the standard Writer features when editing a page.
One thing that is different when editing is the set of options in the property shelf at the bottom of Writer's main window. Instead of being presented with the categories associated with the post and with a publish date, I am instead presented with the following:
This lets me see any other pages and set this page as a child of one of the other pages. The page order does just what you would expect. While this is pretty rudimentary, it is also pretty darn simple and effective when using pages as a compliment to your existing weblog.
Press the publish button.
Yep, it is that easy :)
