Cannot add my blog in Windows Live Writer

  1. I have 3 private blogs under one username, one of which is also mapped to a custom domain.

    When I try to set up the account for the custom domain (both as domain.com as well as blogname.wordpress.com), I keep getting only one blog to show up in Windows Live Writer.

    Any idea why that is so?

    The blog I need help with is romitmehta.com.

  2. Yes. Please think about why we purchase domain mapping and what it does. We purchase it to map from a .wordpress.com sub-domain URL to a domain URL. That's exactly what domain mapping does. When the .wordpress.com subdomain links are clicked there is a seamless redirect to the the domain URLs so all you need is the single URL -- not two URLs.

  3. Thanks, @timethief.

    I have gone through those steps. The issue I am facing is, no matter what I try, WLW only picks up my first blog. The blog I want to set up is the latest one (the third).

    All three blogs are private, FYI.

  4. @timethief, looks like it may have something to do with the privacy setting. I was able to add the blog by temporarily making that third blog public.

  5. Thanks for the update on that.
