    Hi, it's working for me with different versions but I'll try and see why this happens tomorrow.

    You've tried connecting from 3.5 and 3.4.2 to what versions of WordPress?

    Hi, I checked the code today but couldn't find any issues, it's working on my end on a HostGator server.

    Perhaps on the target blog you have only one category with a one letter name?

    Also, the plugin requires your server to have cURL enabled, however it should have notified you if it isn't enabled.

    One last thing I can think of is to try it on a fresh WordPress install - perhaps it's clashing with another plugin.

    I have tryd it on different server with different configurations. All with curl enabled. Most of the time i get an white screen if i try to send the blog data. If i dissable all other plugins i get the same result.

    I just try it on an 1&1 hosting account. There i get this error message: Fatal error: Call to undefined function xmlrpc_encode_request() in /homepages/12/d376219220/htdocs/cms-programme/wp-content/plugins/wp-article-spinner/lib/helper.php on line 65

    Hi Karl,

    I've updated the plugin and added a test that should inform you if XML-RPC is enabled on your server or not. The function xmlrpc_encode_request() needs to be enabled for the remote posting to work.

    If XML-RPC isn't enabled then you should see an error message now (once you update the plugin). If that's the case then you'll need to ask your hosting company to enable it for you, otherwise I'll keep digging.

    Hi Daniel,

    the Plugin shows "It seems that the function xmlrc_encode_request() is disabled on your server. Please contact your server administrator to install / enable XML-RPC."

    BUT

    I feed some of my Blogs, also the Blog with the error message above with the Scribefire Browser Extension. This Extension uses XML-RPC and it works.

    It must be something else.

    Do you try your plugin on an different server?

    I haven't tried it on another server yet, however the function xmlrc_encode_request() is for sending requests out of your blog and getting a response back. What you're currently doing on your blogs is only receiving information.

    If you're getting an error it means that that particular function isn't enabled or installed. The plugin needs that function to retrieve category names and send the spun posts.

    Please ask your host if they can add that function to your server.

    I'm going to see if there's a different function I can use, but so far I haven't found anything...

    I've removed the dependency on those functions from the plugin and updated it to use the IXR library that comes with WordPress.

    Please update your plugin and see if it fixes the problem.

    If I can tomorrow I'll update the code to display more info when there's an error so that we can more easily find the reason why.

    It's my first time coding a plugin for WordPress so thanks for supplying me with feedback!
