Getting WordPress multisite work with Windows Live Writer

Windows Live Writer is configured for working with WordPress multi-site the same way as with normal single-site WordPress installation, but WordPress works a bit differently in multi-site and single-site configurations.

    // If this isn't on WPMU then just use blogger_getUsersBlogs
    if ( !is_multisite() ) {
        array_unshift( $args, 1 );

Progressive discounts in VirtueMart

I did some investigation of VirtueMart 1.1.x discount system and the first thing I did notice is that VirtueMart 1.1.x does not support progressive discounts natively. In other words it does not allow to define the discount based on the amount of products bought or total amount of money paid.
