XML-RPC and new categories (5 posts)

    I am quite new to XML-RPC and the blogging APIs wordpress supports so sorry if I am being silly.

    Anyway, my problem is simple: I am making a blogging client and I'd like to be able to create new categories in the client. However, I am unable to find a (xml-rpc) method that would actually allow ne to make one.

    Is there any way to add new categories using XML-RPC?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Ramis,

    Did you find a solution to creating categories via XMLRPC?

    Cheers - Callum.

    I've not found one. I use Blogdesk and we can't do it with that.

    I just read this thread which talks about Photon (a plugin for iPhoto I believe) which can list categories and create new categories via the API.

    I'm not sure how it does it though. Possibly the mt.setPostCategories method. I know that submitting new categories through metaWeblog.newPost doesn't work, it simply ignores them (as per the spec).

    If I find a solution I'll post it back here.
