Support » Fixing WordPress » Enabling XML-RPC

  • I have enabled XML RPC and Atom in Settings – Writing – Remote Publishing.

    But is it supposed to say “preferred=”false” here then?

    <rsd xmlns="" version="1.0">
    <api name="WordPress" blogID="1" preferred="true" apiLink=""/>
    <api name="Movable Type" blogID="1" preferred="false" apiLink=""/>
    <api name="MetaWeblog" blogID="1" preferred="false" apiLink=""/>
    <api name="Blogger" blogID="1" preferred="false" apiLink=""/>
    <api name="Atom" blogID="" preferred="false" apiLink=""/>

  • Yes, the preferred="false" on all except one of the <api> lines is normal with the xmlrcp.php?rsd URL (one of the them should have preferred="true", and does.)

    This URL is for a Really Simple Discovery query, which allows a client to discover how it can interact with your blog, and WordPress is responding with a list of different interfaces it supports – WordPress’s own API, and the Movable Type, MetaWeblog, Blogger, and Atom interfaces – and indicating which is it preferred one. The WordPress software would, unsurprisingly, prefer that clients used the WordPress-specific interface, but it has a few other interfaces that it offers if clients would rather use those.

    Ok, thanks for answer!
    I can’t see my pingbacks/trackbacks in the comments field, so apparently this was not the problem!
