Support » Fixing WordPress » Windows Live Writer And WordPress Blog

  • 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.

    Anyone come up with thoughts on this???
    What host are you on if you have this issue?



    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.
