Publishing from Word – modify setting on WordPress Dashboard

A solution to “Word cannot register your account” for Word blogging

Posted on April 5, 2009 by herbt3

As it turns out, it’s a setting in WordPress’ Dashboard. I don’t recall seeing this setting a few years ago when I registered my blogs, so it might be something new they added to make things less hit-or-miss. In any case, it worked! Here’s the fix.

  1. At the bottom of the left column, under Dashboard, click on Settings. This will expand the list of settings sections.
  2. Click Writing.
  3. Under Remote Publishing, enable XML-RPC. If you think you’ll ever use Atom, then enable it, too, just for the heck of it.

At the bottom of the Dashboard window, click Save Changes.
