OK I've read through all the XML-RPC stuff I can find and I've found a few examples of how to create a "post" with an older version of WP, none of which seem to work now... i haven't found any information about creating a "page" with it though, which is what I really need to do...
basically i have a PHP app separate from WP, I know everything about what I want to publish to my WP page I need to be able to set at least these three parameters: title, parent page, and template
things that I don't need to set but might be handy:
page content, permalink, custom fields, author.
and I need to know the WordPress ID of the newly created page. Notice that I don't need to actually set the content, this is because the template I'm using connects to an external database and populates a lot of content for me... most of the time when I create these pages the actual page content is empty.
I'm getting to know PHP pretty well and I've made a few small WP plugins and written a handful of database driven we sites, but this XML-RPC stuff is above my head and I'm not even sure if it can do what I want it to do.
Is there any documentation or example code for creating a WP page with the currently used version of xml-rpc?
Is there an alternative method I can use if this doesn't work?
