Problems publishing from Google Docs to My WordPress.com Blog:

  1. I would like to use Google Docs to edit and post to my WordPress.com blog but have so far been unsuccessful. I am trying to use the Publish feature within Google Docs and I believe I have my blog site settings correct but when I select Post to blog. I get "Working" for a few seconds and then "loading" for a fraction of a second. There is no indication of success or failure and no posting shows up in my blog. When I use the Test option within the Google Docs Blog Site Settings, I get the following error: (xmlrpc) unexpected response type. I've tried different text-only documents with the same results. As I understand it, WordPress.com allows XML RPC by default and I couldn't find any such settings in the dashboard.

    My next step is to try the custom API feature.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

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

  2. As I understand it, WordPress.com allows XML RPC by default and I couldn't find any such settings in the dashboard.

    This is all I can find in the support documentation. I apologize in advance if it does not answer your question. http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/

    Actually it did help me to get it to work. I still cannot get the Hosted provided option to work, but I did get the My own server/custom to work. I used the MovableType API and the URL of http://mblogname.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php with my blog credentials and it worked. When I tried this before, I used a different URL and it gave me a 403 error.

    I still don't get why the 'native' blog feature doesn't work, but at least something does. Thanks for you help.

  4. You're welcome. I'm so glad to hear you got it to work, but I do think you ought to share your experience with Staff http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/
