Windows 7: Word 2007 can't connect and publish to WordPress

Word 2007 can't connect and publish to WordPress

Hey All,

I'd like to use MS Word 2007 as WordPress blogging client.

When I attempt to register the blogging domain within Word I get a "no" stating that Word can't connect.

I've selected the correct blog provider (WordPress), entered the correct username and password and entered the correct URL of the blog linking to the xmlrpc.php file.

In the WordPress Settings, under Publishing I've enabled the required service (protocol).

Still, Word can't connect.

Could someone suggest how to go about this?

Thank you.
Regards.

Thank you Irene.

I am indeed doing properly everything that is described in the article, but this error message appears.

So the question is more about that.

Other blogging clients post over to the website just fine. This leads to think that the issue is on Word's side, but it is still a good idea to ask over there as well.

Thanks.
