WordPress 2.7 incompatible with Windows Live Writer (7 posts)

    I have been using Windows Live Writer to compose by posts.

    I noticed that whenever I make a post to my WordPress 2.7 blogs, the tags are stripped and the result is a single line of incorrectly stripped tags.

    e.g.

    <p>How are you doing</p>

    becomes

    pHow are you doing/p

    Is there any solution to this?

    WLW works perfectly with WordPress 2.6.x

    I'm using the latest build of WLW and I tested it on both my blogs running 2.7.

    I think Windows Live Writer have serious issues with WP 2.7
    Many people are reporting all kind of problems with the WLW + WP 2.7

    Have you tried with http://windowslivewriter.spaces.live.com/blog/ the latest RC?

    I was able to figure out the problem with a bit of searching online.

    It seems that the bug is because of incompatibility between libxml and php which causes the tags to be stripped.

    Only option currently is to either downgrade to libxml 2.6.30 or install PHP with Expat option.

    Check out http://blog.code-head.com/fixing-libxml-php-bug-and-issues-with-html-entities-downgrading-libxml/ for a tutorial of the same.

    I'll contact my webhost to update the library but this plugin works:

    (the manual fix to comment out didn't work for me)
