Problem with XML-RPC (5 posts)

    Hello!
    I travel quite a lot, so I want to use XML-RPC and for example Zoundry Raven so I can write posts while I'm offline, and post them when i get internet. The only problem is that it seems like WordPress is filtering away every <, > and &, so the post gets all f*cked up since it doesn't recognize HTML-codes.

    Have anyone else experienced this problem? Or does anyone know how I can fix it?

    Other than that, I love WordPress. Its so userfriendly and yet powerful.

    This is a problem with your server using known to be broken combinations of PHP and libxml2. I've written few a posts on the subject:

    If your host is unwilling to upgrade PHP and libxml2 to fix this then there is a plugin that I wrote that will work around this:
