  5. thanks timethief, I tried it, but I'm still getting the same error.

    Is there a way to check to make sure I have V 3.4+?

  6. I don't used Hootsuite.
    Have you tried the Help desk there?

    P.S. I'll also tag this thread for a Staff follow-up.

  8. Your screenshot suggests you are trying to connect HootSuite to a self-hosted blog running the software at If the blog in question is not hosted on, we will not be able to provide direct support for you here. Instead, you may wish to check the forums for more assistance:

  9. To anyone having this problem: I think the issue is that you're trying to connect using the app (which doesn't work for .com blogs). Here's what I did: I clicked on "Add Stream" near the top. Then I clicked on "WordPress" in the menu that came up there and typed in username / password. That worked for me, but if you have more than one blog, it looks like it defaults to your Primary Blog. Here's what it says under "Settings": If you manage multiple blogs under one account you must set which blog will be updated by calls from HootSuite. Log into and choose your Primary Blog under Settings - Account (reached from Global Dashboard).
    I hope that helps someone here.
