Cross-Posting from Blip.tv - ERROR (3 posts)

    I am getting an error message in my blip.tv account when I try to cross-post to my WordPress blog.

    First, I created a contributor level account on my WordPress blog which allows for posting but the posts need to be approved by an admin first before they get published. I did this as a test because I want to be able to let certain people using blip.tv the ability to cross-post podcast posts (with attached MP3 files) to my blog.

    Second, I setup my blip.tv account to cross-post to my blog, making sure to select the correct blogging system software (WordPress, self-hosted), enter the correct login information (username and password) for the user I created for this test, admin panel location (www.garagepunk.com/wp-admin), and the API Endpoint URL as detected by blip.tv (http://www.garagepunk.com/xmlrpc.php).

    Next, I created a test post and uploaded an MP3 to attach to it. After the upload was complete, I waited several minutes for my post to be accepted or completed at my WordPress blog. Instead, it returned the following error message:

    Error encountered cross-posting: Fatal client error. Sorry, you can not post on this weblog or category. at /var/www/prod/otter/bin/../lib/Net/Blogger/Engine/Base.pm line 245.

    Any idea what went wrong?

    Hello again, I wanted to post that I was able to get this to work if I switched the role of the WordPress user from "Contributor" to "Author." However, I don't like having my users' role set to Author because the posts publish immediately on the blog. I would prefer to be able to go in and view, edit (add additional categories, for one), and approve the post before it was published to the blog, which is why I was trying to do this with the user's role set at "Contributor." But when I tried it like that, it didn't work, so I'll again ask if anyone has any idea what would be preventing the cross-post from appearing on the WordPress blog for admin approval.

    Thanks,

    Does no one know what could be causing this error?
