So I managed to get jetpack working way back by switching to twenty eleven temporarily and switching back only to have the problem re occur. (my theme is adapted from an HTML theme I purchased at Theme Forest)
I found out about the debugger and ran this code
curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: text/xml' 'http://thegamechronicler.com/xmlrpc.php'
and got back the following
parse error. not well formed
<?xml version="1.0"?> <methodResponse> <fault> <value> <struct> <member> <name>faultCode</name> <value><int>-32700</int></value> </member> <member> <name>faultString</name> <value><string>parse error. not well formed</string></value> </member> </struct> </value> </fault>
Any and All help is desperately desired
