-mail and the API"> Can you speak to the templating engine via the new mail-in post feature? No, thats purely for content. The templates can only be modified via the interface or the API.
Are there any differences with the API, or does it still work with the old Blogger API or the metaweblog API?
There are no changes to the API in this release. The Blogger 1.0 API is still supported, and the ATOM API is supported as well, as much as its been developed anyway. Is there any way to access the API externally from your site and make changes dynamically? You could. Theres nothing built-in to do that … you mean, be able to edit your post on page or something like that? Exactly. Thats possible; youd have to script it yourself. Id love to see people do that. Would this be a SOAP interface using the ATOM code? Yes, or the old XML-RPC with the Blogger API. Next page: Commenting on Comments.
