How to upload to the wordpress domain?

  1. I'm using Rapidweaver 5 (Dreamweaver for macs) to write my blogs on WordPress.

    However I don't know how to upload my work to YOURBLOGNAMEHERE.wordpress.com. I really don't want to spend any money on a domain name unless I know for sure that people will be reading my blog first.

    I have no idea what server I should upload my blog to or what username or password I should be using.

    Can I get any help?

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

  2. You can't upload posts from Dreamweaver to wordpress.com sites. Dreamweaver really isn't a "posting" sort of program, and posts and pages are not HTML sort of things. Post and page content is stored in a MySQL database.

    You can use a blog client such as Ecto or MarsEdit, both of which work with Macs and post via XMLRPC. Ecto is around $20 and Mars Edit around $30.

    Also, having a domain name mapped to a blog here does not give you any extra features or capabilities. The same restrictions and rules apply to domain mapped sites here. All it does is to make your blog here appear to the public under your own domain name.

    You would not be able to use Dreamweaver with a self-hosted wordpress site. Again, it isn't the right tool for the job. Ecto and MarsEdit are your best bet for both wordpress.com and self-hosted wordpress.ORG sites.
