If you would remember, in the past I have been weblogging a couple of times about the beta release from Qumana that would allow you to post content in multiple weblogs in a seamless and very user friendly manner. Indeed, QumanaXP has done some really great work so far by releasing a new beta client, version 2, that has improved a few things even better, including one of the error messages I was getting when trying to publish my Internet weblog.
Arieanna provides all the different details over at QumanaXP’s official weblog and you can read some more about it over there. However, there is still one issue that is currently bugging me quite a bit regarding the usage of this particular weblogging tool. And that is the fact that it is almost impossible to set it up to talk to Roller Weblogger, like I have mentioned elsewhere. Even more, with this second beta release, I just cannot even pass through the initial setup windows as can be seen on the following screen shot (URL address has been removed to show the picture with just the error message). And that is just so frustrating !
I have been using this beta release from QumanaXP ever since it was made publicly available and so far, as I have mentioned already a couple of times, I do love the experience. However, it would be even much nicer if I could also get it working for my Intranet weblog, which uses Roller. But it looks like that would have to wait for another release because so far it seems we have gone a bit backwards on this one. I have been in contact with the development folks to try to figure out what is going on but so far I am still stuck with it.
Let’s see what will be happening over the next few weeks because I would hate having to move away from such a fine release of this weblogging tool that makes knowledge sharing and collaborating a true delight. I am sure that those who may have tried out the tool already would agree with that. Thus I am keeping my fingers crossed that one of these days I would be able to configure QumanaXP successfully to make it work for all of my weblogs.

Thanks again for the support. We’re not sure why this release made Roller even less successful, but we’re hopeful for the future. Our new baby server is on its way and that will give us ample room to install and test all these platforms the way we need to – so, Roller’s top on the list!
Thanks much, Arieanna, for dropping by and for sharing these feedback comments with us. I am really glad to read you will be able to test QumanaXP with Roller in that soon-arriving server and I hope that in another beta release, or whenever it goes into full production, we would be able to work successfully with it. It is the only thing that is stopping me now from not wanting to make use of QumanaXP as my default weblogging tool. Hopefully, that will not take too much time now. Fingers crossed. Appreciated the committed support in getting it to work. Thanks !
