Enabling XML-RPC (3 posts)

    I have enabled XML RPC and Atom in Settings - Writing - Remote Publishing.

    But is it supposed to say "preferred="false" here then? http://makeupedia.se/xmlrpc.php?rsd

    <rsd xmlns="http://archipelago.phrasewise.com/rsd" version="1.0">
    <service>
    <engineName>WordPress</engineName>
    <engineLink>http://wordpress.org/</engineLink>
    <homePageLink>http://makeupedia.se</homePageLink>
    <apis>
    <api name="WordPress" blogID="1" preferred="true" apiLink="http://makeupedia.se/xmlrpc.php"/>
    <api name="Movable Type" blogID="1" preferred="false" apiLink="http://makeupedia.se/xmlrpc.php"/>
    <api name="MetaWeblog" blogID="1" preferred="false" apiLink="http://makeupedia.se/xmlrpc.php"/>
    <api name="Blogger" blogID="1" preferred="false" apiLink="http://makeupedia.se/xmlrpc.php"/>
    <api name="Atom" blogID="" preferred="false" apiLink="http://makeupedia.se/wp-app.php/service"/>
    </apis>
    </service>
    </rsd>

    Yes, the preferred="false" on all except one of the <api> lines is normal with the xmlrcp.php?rsd URL (one of the them should have preferred="true", and does.)

    This URL is for a Really Simple Discovery query, which allows a client to discover how it can interact with your blog, and WordPress is responding with a list of different interfaces it supports - WordPress's own API, and the Movable Type, MetaWeblog, Blogger, and Atom interfaces - and indicating which is it preferred one. The WordPress software would, unsurprisingly, prefer that clients used the WordPress-specific interface, but it has a few other interfaces that it offers if clients would rather use those.

    Ok, thanks for answer!
    I can't see my pingbacks/trackbacks in the comments field, so apparently this was not the problem!
