ecto stops working with wordpress 2.1 (9 posts)

    After upgrading to wordpress 2.1 ecto hangs when I try to refresh. There was a similar problem with wordpress.com: http://bb.infinite-sushi.com/viewtopic.php?t=2116 and http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=5922#post-46393

    This is the problem:

    The console log was helpful. The categoryID should be returned as a string, not an int. Please open a bug report with WordPress and ask them to fix the XMLRPC according to specs at http://www.movabletype.org/mt-static/docs/mtmanual_programmatic.html

    Here is my Console Log:

    Response:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <methodResponse>
    <params>
    <param>
    <value>
    <data>
    <value><struct>
    <member><name>categoryName</name><value><string>fundgrube</string></value></member>
    <member><name>categoryId</name><value><int>5</int></value></member>
    <member><name>isPrimary</name><value><boolean>1</boolean></value></member>
    </struct></value>
    </data>
    </value>
    </param>
    </params>
    </methodResponse>

    I have created #3662: Can't post using Ecto b/c categoryID should be string not int. A patch is available for WordPress (core) and should be included in the first maintenance release of WordPress 2.1 . Please try it and add a comment to the ticket in trac saying you tested it and whether it now works or not.

    the fix is simple

    You must edit your xmlrpc.php. Find:

    'categoryId' => $catid,

    and change to:

    'categoryId' => (string) $catid,

    This comes from:

    not working for me.
    Ecto is still broken with WP.
    and i've checked all previous ideas on how to fix it.

    weird, for me it works like a charm.
    did you run the wp-upgrade-script?

    maybe it helps to "reset" ecto, meaning to delete the weblog and re-add it.

    sorry, but farther than that i'm out of help...
