Goodreads Autopublish reviews

  1. I am looking for some assistance with the autopublish feature from goodreads with the wordpress site. This is the instruction from goodreads about autopublishing your reviews to your blog:

    I can't seem to get auto-publishing reviews to my WordPress blog to work. What's wrong?

    1. Did you paste the correct URL?
    For a WordPress blog, you can find the correct URL by going to your blog's main page, and then viewing the source code. You'll find a line that looks like this:

    link rel="EditURI" type="application/rsd+xml" title="RSD" href=" http://www.yourblog.com/xmlrpc.php ?rsd"

    The URL to use is in the 'href' section. Leave off the '?rsd'. In the above example, your post url would be http://www.yourblog.com/xmlrpc.php.

    2. Did you enable "remote publishing" in your WordPress settings?
    To check, go to: WordPress blog --> Settings --> Writing.

    3. Are you using an admin user's information?
    Unfortunately, contributors won't work.

    I believe I have followed the first step correctly, but I am unable to locate a 'remote publishing' setting to 'turn on'. From my searches of the forums and help topics I have found a number of replies that say you can turn on autopublishing by email and by voice, but nothing similar to what goodreads advises.

    Grateful for some advice.

    The blog I need help with is coffee2words.wordpress.com.

  2. Autopublishing content here is against the rules and will basically get your site suspended. WordPress.com is not an aggregator; it is a platform for original blogging.

    If you want an aggregator, you want WordPress.ORG. Those instructions are for a WordPress.ORG blog, which is not bound by our terms of service, etc.

  3. @Raincoaster - thanks for the clarification.

    I imagine that gets a little confusing for people.

    Cheers,

    C2W

  4. All the time. Until the robot filter was put in place at least a third of our questions were from .org bloggers who were confused.

  5. my blog is at wordpress.com, and I linked it with goodreads, and when I wrote a review, it is not autopublished on my blog http://www.jrwang.net

    I did not find remotepublish at all.. how to set it? help/
