U4-3220 - bodyText empty when sending a draft with Windows Live Writer

Created by Damiano 22 Oct 2013, 20:28:42 Updated by Shannon Deminick 26 Jun 2017, 05:41:32

Using Windows Live Writer as editor for Blog Post, when I send the post as draft (not publish) I can see the document in Umbraco Content Dashboard but the bodyText is not visible, Title and Tags are OK instead.

Having the same problem. When publishing from Live writer it works fine. But saving as draft causes body to be empty. Same problem in other clients such as Office.

Looking at the code in github (Having no experience with the code base), it seams a call to doc.Save() is missing.


// This seams to save when publishing, but if we are not publishing it does not save(?)!
if (publish) {
    doc.SaveAndPublish(new User(username));
