    Hello all,

    I’m trying to use this code to post an article to my blog. The error I’ve received in response is:

    500 You are not allowed to do that.

    I’ve checked my login credentials and blog prefix and they’re ok, but I still get failure. Please advise.

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

    Unfortunately we can’t allow this script to post content on WordPress.com as it would violate our Terms of Service.

    If you still wish to use WordPress for your site along with this script, we recommend that you look into self-hosted WordPress. You can find more information on self-hosted WordPress at http://wordpress.org/ and can find a list of recommended hosts at http://get.wp.com/hosting/ .

    Thanks, kardotim.

    Can you please suggest a better way to post content to WordPress.com that would not violate the Terms of Service.
