Goodreads Autopublish reviews
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.
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.
@raincoaster – thanks for the clarification.
I imagine that gets a little confusing for people.
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.
