Word 2007 and Metaweblog

Jun 7, 2008 at 3:58 PM
I just come from using Wordpress.     My blog is all set up and working.     I now want to duplicate the posting of an entry directly from Word 2007 like I did from Wordpress.   However, Word 2007 doesn't like my information when I tried to use "other" as a service.   Say the service doesn't exist.

So..   What are the exact steps to make this work.  I'm assuming it will, but maybe no.    I tried to find the metaweblog api in the blog code, and did not exist anywhere that I could find.   Is this a separate download and install?  if so from where?

What are the exact credential in Word 2007 that will work.

Thanks for any help.

Provider: Other -> API: MethaWeblog -> URL: http://your.site.here.com/metaweblog.axd

That got it.    I had not made the url a fully qualified link...  www.mysite.com/blog.  once the http:// was there it worked fine.     The error being thrown by Word didn't help either..
