  1. I have yet been unable to figure out how to access the WordPress previously published media library. Does it work with self-hosted WP installations?

  2. Hi @seth - it does (should!) work with self-hosted blogs. After you refresh the blog in MarsEdit you should see all the previously published items from your WordPress media library in the MarsEdit Media Manager, under the “Published” tab. If it isn’t working please drop me a line [email protected] - thanks!
