[resolved] What is my "Remote Posting URL"? (3 posts)

    I'm trying to set up Windows Live Writer so I can submit blog posts remotely, and it asks for my remote posting URL, in the following format:
    http://<hostname>/<wp_path>/xmlrpc.php

    Since I'm on Host Gator, is that the <hostname>? Since I installed WP in the Public HTML directory, is that my wp_path? Any ideas?

    Just guessing, but I believe hostname is the name of your site... like whatever.com

    the wp_path is going to be any folders needed to get to xmlrpc.php

    so maybe blog or wordpress or wp or something if you didn't install in root, if you installed in your root, then you have no wp_path in your url....

    altogether its something like http://yourwebsite.com/blog/xmlrpc.php or just http://yourwebsite.com/xmlrpc.php

    Thanks ... I figured it out, and your answer is correct ... it was myblog.com/xmlrpc.php
