    I manage a small WordPress blog for my daughter’s sports team. I have pages with coming events, widgets with Win/Losses etc. I am am amateur programmer and I wrote a VB program to collect and sort data, pulling events from google calander, then automatically formats all this into pages, prepares the contents of the “What’s on this week” widget, etc and I use some basic HTML code to make it look fancy.

    The parents LOVE it.

    I take the pages from my App, and I copy and paste the HTML to the blog. I would like to automate this last bit, so that I can push a button and the pages that have changed, get updated. Or even automate it, so that every Sunday night, the “What’s on this week” widget gets refreshed for the coming week.

    Is there a basic API to do this? BTW, I have zero budget, so it has to be simple.

    Hi. In order to assist you, we need the URL of your blog, starting with http:// please. Thanks.

    I am hesitant to do so, since some parents are weary to have pictures of their daughters made public. (we are private by obscurity!) I will fake up a site later today (off to a practice!!) and pass you the URL.

    I was asking for the URL in order to ensure you are on the right forum.

    If you installed a plugin or a script on the site, chances are it runs on WordPress software but is not hosted by WordPress.com. If that’s the case, you are in the wrong forum and should ask at http://wordpress.org/support/

    Ah, OK. It is a somethingsomthing.wordpress.com blog.

    WordPress.com may not allow that kind of code or may prevent some auto-posting mechanism on their site. If I was you, I would ask staff directly, especially if you are not willing to disclose the URL on a public forum (which I understand and respect):
