I downloaded the WordPress iPhone app the other day after Robert Mills tweeted about it (@RobertMills on Twitter). I couldn’t wait to fire it up and start blogging away right from my iPhone. The first thing I had to do was to enable XML-RPC services on one of my wordpress blogs to enable the app tos peak to it which was no problem at all. Having done this I quickly connected to the one blog I was experimenting with (http://www.isthiscool.com) I could view edit and add new posts right away ah a snag…. IsThisCool uses custom fields to add a thumbnail to the post which is needed as this is an integral part of this blog so I was scuppered!
Still never mind knowing this was quite a complicated blog I wasn’t to bothered so I decided to connect to this blog instead easy I thought but no how wrong I was! I enabled XML-RPC and no mater what I try I either get a XML-RPC error on the iPhone app or I am told my username and password is wrong which having entered multiple times it isn’t! The only thing I can think of is that this blog is with another hosting provider, HostHi to be precise so perhaps they are not letting me through the firewall? Any help will be very much appreciated!
