    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.

    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.
