Publish to Your Self-Hosted WordPress Blog through MS Word 2007

·

Earlier I had talked on how you could use Microsoft Office Word 2007 to publish posts to WordPress.com, Blogger, TypePad etc. But when I started my new blog http://www.themacblog.co.cc/blog, I could not find a trick anywhere in the web to publish posts to a self hosted WordPress.org Blog. So this is when I decided to write this post.

First of all select Other in New Blog Account Window and click Next.



Go to the Settings - Writing Section of your WP blog and enable XML-RPC under Remote Publishing.



Now go back to Word and select API as MetaWebLog. Then enter your Blog Post Url in the form sitename.com/xmlrpc.php or sitename.com/dirname/xmlrpc.php if your blog is in a subdirectory.(Note: When you type this URL on the address bar of your browser you should get a message like 'XML-RPC server accepts POST requests only.' and not Page Not Found.)
Now enter the username and password of your WP blog.



You're done. Click OK and Enjoy!
