Support » Fixing WordPress » Blogging a Digg Story = Parse Error!

  • Resolved marksweb


    Hi, for a long time now I have been able to use the ‘Blog It’ tool on to blog stories from digg.

    Today however, I have tried to blog a story only to get a “parse error. not well formed”
    I’ve re-entered my blog details on my digg settings and checked that I can actually login to my blog and its all fine, appart from this error when I try and blog a digg story.

    Any Ideas?

    Check that your xmlrpc.php file has not been altered.

    Other than that, it might be digg’s problem.

    i’ve never come across that file before – what is it used for and does it get written by the server? i.e. could i just download WP again and upload that particular file to check if that helps?

    I thought this would probably be a digg problem, but support there is a lot harder to come by so I thought I’d post here first. Thankfully I’ve got an email addy for someone @ digg so will write to them as well 🙂

    xmlrpc.php is the file used by other programs (external blogging tools, digg, etc) to access your blog and post things. It’s also used for pingbacks. Nothing writes to it. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t get broken in other ways.

    Just make sure it’s there and unaltered. If so, then there’s nothing more to do, it’s likely digg malfunctioning.

    thanks for your help 🙂

    i’ll upload the latest version and then see what happens.
