Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Alvin and anyone else experiencing password issues:

I’ve updated the <code>txp_validate()</code> function to the new version used in <code>txp_auth.php</code>; this should fix the password problem. Please download a new copy of xmlrpcs.php and try it out.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Kurt – you’re got my vote for sainthood. I grabbed a new copy, sent it to textdrive and pressed that cool F12 key for the the tiger dashboard. Worked like —- well, it worked just fine…

Thanks so much,

Alvin…

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Regarding w.bloggar and the ‘excerpt’ field:

When you add an account in w.bloggar, make sure to select the “Movable Type” option for “Blog Tool”. If you’ve already created an account using the “Custom” blog type, you’ll have to delete it in w.bloggar first. Once you’ve done that, an “Excerpt” field will appear on the “More” tab. For some reason, changing an existing blog in w.bloggar from the “Custom” type to “Movable Type” does not cause the excerpt field to appear.

Also note that if you choose “Post” your post will be saved as a draft in Textpattern, as where as “Post and Publish” will cause the post to go live in Textpattern.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Excellent thanks, one other thing though. I can now enter an excerpt in w.bloggar and it shows up in the txp admin but on my live site it shows only the body until I go to the article in the txp admin and resave it. I am using the if_excerpt conditional in my article form.

Any ideas on this?

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

I’ve having a slight problem with w.bloggar. I’m not sure if it’s a problem with w.bloggar or with the plugin, but when I post an article, it automatically sets the comments to off. I’d like it to default to on. TXP is set to on by default, so I know it’s only this way when I post via the desktop app. Is this fixable?

Edit: I get this option if I use the Movable Type API instead of MetaWeblog. Is this a limitation in the metaWeblog API?

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Okay…there’s a new version posted (at the same URL) which should resolve the excerpt and comment issues. If comments are affirmatively set on or off (for example, by using w.bloggar’s “Advanced…” button on the “More” tab), then that setting is used. Otherwise, the Textpattern default for comments is used.

As to excerpts, they were being stored improperly in the database—the textiled excerpt was going in to the ‘Excerpt’ field, and ‘Excerpt_html’ was being left blank.

Let me know if either of these issues remain unresolved.

Thanks to all who have tested previous versions—your efforts have been very helpful.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

Almost there with my problem.

Using w.bloggar:
excerpts now get published to the live site but they don’t get textile formatted. “Text Filters” is set to default under “Advanced” on the “more” tab I would assume that means leave it to txp default setting which is to use textile in excerpts.

Also on the front page it lists the articles as expected (minus the textile formatting) but when I go to the section the article belongs to it shows the full body and only one article even though it should show a list with excerpts. Once I resave it through txp it lists fine.

Re: XML-RPC for Textpattern 4.0 - test release

This is something of a shot in the dark, but there’s a new version posted which may resolve the excerpt issues with w.bloggar. As it stands now, Textile is forced on for both the body and excerpt—regardless of the setting specified by the XML-RPC client. Room for future improvement, maybe.
