Auto posting error message - Failed to connect to the blog: 5
« on: January 05, 2012, 01:19:23 PM »
I am trying to connect Article Builder to my EmpowerNetwork blog. I know this is possible, but cannot get my blog to be accepted. Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,

Paul

WordPress Dashboard--->Settings--->Writing

Check Box--->XML-RPC--->Enable

SAVE

I'm having the same issue and enabled the writing function. I get the following error

Failed to connect to the blog: 2 => Invalid return payload: enabling debugging to examine incoming payload

That often means a plugin you're using is interfering with XMLRPC.

I keep getting the error message
"FAIL ERROR: -32700 => parse error. not well formed"
when I try to set up an Auto Post to my Blog.
I have no problems sending a post to my blog straight from the Build Article and Inject content pages of Article Builder.
Does any one have any fixes?

I have enabled the XMLRPC on my blog.

Cheers
Loz

I am having same issues. I have a number of blogs producing:

Failed to connect to the blog: 5 => Didn't receive 200 OK from remote server. (HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found)

XML is enabled

I have disabled all plugins on one blog, and
another blog has 0 plugins; I get the same errors.

There is nothing wrong with the blogs, they work fine.

any ideas?

update: I have upgraded my blogs to the latest WP.
They seem to be working right now.
