Preliminary MarsEdit Blogger Fix

May 29th, 2015

Since learning on Tuesday about MarsEdit’s sudden failure to connect with Blogger blogs, I have been working to restore functionality.

I’m happy to share that I’ve published a working (I hope!) beta release with preliminary support for connecting to Blogger through their newer authentication system, OAuth2. You can download a pre-release of MarsEdit with this functionality here:

Download MarsEdit 3.7b2

Be aware that when you first go to publish to your blog, upload an image, or delete a post, MarsEdit will pop up a login window for Google, right in the app. This is expected and is part of the new method for accommodating Google authentication:

Sign In

Be sure to use the Google account that is associated with your blog. After you sign in once and approve the connection, you shouldn’t need to sign in again.

There are a few rough edges in this beta release, but I want to make sure those of you who are waiting for a fix get something to try as soon as possible. Please let me know if you run into any major problems, particularly problems that prevent you from connecting to and editing your Blogger blog.
