Login problems with external blogging software (2 posts)

    I am trying to get Windows Live Writer working for my blog, but for some reason it cannot log in; it gives me a login/password error. Same for Qumana and w.bloggar. The same login/password combination works fine when I log in through the web interface.

    However, if I add a new account, I can log in perfectly well using an external writer -- but I would really like to use my existing account.

    Any ideas what could cause this behaviour and what I could do about it?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Further to this: I now have found out that this behaviour seems to have something to do with password strength. If I use a simple password there is no problem, but if I use a 'strong' password (eight characters, mix of lowercase, uppercase, numbers, and special characters) I cannot use an external writer t log in.

    Obviously, I would prefer to be able to use a strong password. Is this in any way possible?

    Thanks,
    Michael
