Miles Metcalfe :: Blog :: XML-RPC...?

January 23, 2008

Hello, Emergers. I tried today to post using my trusty desktop blogging client, ecto. I have many reasons for this - I like ecto, ecto's developer is a really nice guy, I like to compose blog posts offline, I like to be able to quickly search posts, I like good integration with Flickr, and TinyMCE doesn't bleeping work with Safari - which is why I'm concluding this sentence with a link to ecto's site, rather than including the link inline: ecto - http://infinite-sushi.com/. Today, I find that the "XML-RPC server accepts POST requests only" - which is usually a sign that access over XML-RPC is being blocked, usually inadvertently. This wasn't the case in the past, as my intermittent postings to Emerge last year were from a desktop client. It's very selfish of me, but if someone will be fiddling with .htaccess files sometime soon, please remember my plight!

  1. Hmmm. I use and love ecto, though usually don't use it or Emerge posts. I use it extensively for LiveJournal and TypePad posts. I'll investigate.
