[resolved] Live Writer not working on wordpress 3.0.1 (7 posts)

    I use Live Writer to post to my blogs. This software is a very nice tool for efficient posting - much better than wordpress-, but since I upgraded WP from version 2.9 to 3.0.1, LW deosn't work at all. I contacted my hosting provider and found out that there is something in wordpress 3.0.1 that doesn't allow LW or any other similar software - like Live Writer or BlogJet - to work.
    What is wrong with WP 3.0.1?
    I need help!
    Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

    ...What is wrong with WP 3.0.1?

    You may be another victim of inaccurate or "it ain't my problem" hosting support. I just got done posting to one of my blogs using WLW (build 14.0.8089.726n) on WordPress 3.0.1. (I haven't updated WLW because I'm lazy like that).

    So I guess the answer to your question, is nothing. Nothing seems to be wrong with WordPress at all.

    Start by reviewing all of your live writer settings, and also make sure the xml-rpc option did not get turned off in your dashboard. Perhaps re-editing and refreshing your blog information in WLW setup may be enough to kick it in the pants and get it going again.

    Quick Update: I just upgraded to LW build 14.0.8177.416 en. Still works.

    Thank you Clayton!

    I have the same LW build 14.0.8177.416 en and WordPress 3.0.1.
    I did everything you suggested and LW still doesn't work.

    I deactivate all plugins on my site in order to eliminate any plugin realted issue with the same results.

    So, I installed a new test site with WP 2.9 on the same host and LW worked perfectly with this version, but not with WP 3.0.1.

    So I guess that something in WP 3.0.1 has to be done in order to make LW work in my blog.

    I can't reproduce the issue using wordpress 3.0.1. Was there any useful information or clues related to the failure stored in your windows live writer logs?

    Hi, I'm using Live writer no problems with WP 3.0.1
    Have you checked under settings writing.
    Under Remote Publishing, make sure XML-RPC is selected.
    Sometimes this does not remain checked after an upgrade as not the default.
    Good luck. Mike.

    My good friends,

    After following your suggestions and getting the same result, I changed the blog theme - I was using the premium theme "Chrome WordPress Theme 2.0" by StudioPress - to the default theme of WordPress 3.0.1. And guess what? Now LW works and I can use it with my WP blog!

    Thank you for your interest and support!
