Microsoft Word 2003 and higher will allow you to place a blog post to Word Press if the blog server is configured to receive the blog post and if you have a valid username and password in order to make those posts.
In order to make this connection happen, you will need the following:
- URL to blog site:
Once you have these items, perform the following to establish your blog posting account.
Note: You will only have to establish your account the first time you make a connection. From that point on, Word will store your username and password for you; however, it is a good idea to keep this information someplace in case your computer has to be reloaded.
- Open Word and select File/New
- Select New Blog Post
- Click on Manage Accounts
- Click on New
- Select Word Press as your provider
- Click Next
- Enter the URL to the blog site (make sure you leave the xmlrpc.php on the end of the document)
- Enter your username
- Enter your password
- Check Remember Password
- Click OK
- You should get a message that your account has been established.
From this point on, anytime you wish to publish a new blog post, your account will be configured and you can just type your message, select a category, and click publish when you are done.
We always recommend that you should have at least 1 photograph with each blog post and that you should always choose a category to place your blog post into.
