Windows Live Writer And WordPress Blog (6 posts)

    Posted 3 years ago #

    I am having a problem. We have been using Windows Live Writer for quite some time. I recently typed up something and saved it as a draft in my blog. I then logged into the blog admin panel and edited the draft. I found that the post had a lot of HTML markup in it for no reason.
    Here is what I had... In case you are questioning...

    I typed this into a blog with WLW:
    Hello. How are you. This is a test.

    From the actual blog panel I edited the post and got:
    pHello.#160; How are you.#160; This is a test./p

    This is happening on all 5 of my sites. Nothing has been changed in the blogs. Nothing has been changed with WLW.

    Suggestions please...

    That is EXACTLY what's happened to me! I can't wait to hear the solutions as I'm on deadline and have been trying to fix this all day.

    Someone suggested it was a Jetpack - so I went in and deleted all the plugins I'd recently added in case it was that - the problem persists.

    Anybody got any feedback on this? This issue has also started occurring to me all of a sudden for no apparent reason.

    Anybody got remote posting working?

    I found out that this isn a issue with the version of PHP and libxml2.
    You have to use at least PHP 5.2.9+ with libxml2 2.7.3+ to get Live Writer (and others similar tools) to work with wordpress.
    But do not fear, there is a workaround via this plugin.
    I used on my site and it worked flawless.
