  1. Wow what a great feature.. That’s really awesome.. Big thanks for that nice step by step tutorial.. I will try this for the next posts on my website.. Good work!

  2. I can’t publish from Word (Office 365) to any blog, I’ve tried blogger and wordpress and can not find any relevant help online. There is some dated help online but it’s not relevant. My problem is that after I fill in the information of my blog user name etc – Word displays this error message : “Word cannot register your account” I’ve tried both blogger and wordpress and it doesn’t work. Please help me out if you can? Thanks.

    • Have you check your firewall setting, may be your antivirus is blocking Office 365 to communicate.

    • I’m having the same issue. Tried turning off my firewalls (at router and in Windows). Windows cannot register, nor can they provide any useful help. One thing I noticed and not even mentioned (conveniently missing) is that if you don’t have at least the small business version you cannot use SharePoint network features. I wonder if this is related.

      • This should not be the firewall issue I suppose. And Joe it has nothing related to Business version. I am using Home premium and it is working perfectly fine.
