In this tutorial I'll show you how to set up the blog editor in the Flock browser for use with Joomla. This way, you have an even easier way of publishing articles to your Joomla! blog.

IMPORTANT: The Flock browser has been discontinued.

If you haven' already done so, please read this article on how to set up Joomla for use with Flock and other blog editors.
