    I was wondering if it’s possible to use the API from external blogging applications? If so, what is the posting url for the api?

    is it:

    http://myblog.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php ??

    One example of dashboard widget blog tools for the mac:


    Thanks for any and all help/suggestions!

    You are absolutely correct.
    ‘http://myblog.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php’ is the standard access point of a WP blog.


    excellent. :) Just for the record, I wanted to let you know that the following osX dashboard widgets I’ve tried with the standard access point, and work:

    dashblog (no categories, but will publish)
    RapidMetaBlog (categories, but quite huge on the dashboard, does have preview, however)
    WordPressDash (categories, and confirmation of post, small footprint- I use this one now regularly).

    Thanks for the help Gaotsin!



    There’s also Performancing that you can look at.

    Quite a nice little extension for Firefox that will allow blogging to wp.com accounts.

    I have so far only tried this app so have nothing to compare it to, but it’s not too shabby at all!
