Upgrade from 1.2 to 2.0 broke Wordpress Settings
  • I haven't been able to use MarsEdit to post or download old posts successfully since upgrading this morning. My settings look like:

    Name: Wordpress Weblog
    Home URL: http://edgibbs.com/wordpress
    Software: Wordpress
    RPC URL: http://edgibbs.com/xmlrpc.php
    Blog ID: 1
    Number of posts to download: 10

    I get the following error when posting:

    Can’t do post for Wordpress Weblog because the server reported an error. The server returned an unexpected response code: 404.

    I haven't changed anything and it has been working for over 2 years prior. I'm using Wordpress 2.0.5.
  • Hi Edward - I think it might be a coincidence that it stopped working when you upgraded to MarsEdit 2.0. For instance, if I try to add your weblog to MarsEdit 1.2 I get the same 404 error.

    A little poking around leads me to believe there is a slight error in your site's "auto-detection" information (RSD). It gives you the xmlrpc.php url above, but I think what it actually wants is:

    http://edgibbs.com/wordpress/xmlrpc.php

    Try replacing the RPC URL with that and then refresh the blog. Let us know how it goes!

  • Thanks didn't try that variation, it now works fine.
