WordPress 4.1 and XML-RPC for Microsoft Word

 

Problem

I used to write posts using Microsoft Word. After updating to WordPress 4.1 blogging was not possible anymore . In WordPress the settings for XML-RPC disappeared.

Solution

Microsoft is offering a free bundle of software called : Windows Essentials

Install only Windows Live Writer from this bundle. It is better than Word for blogging as you can apply categories etc.

Info: to change the path where Live Writer saves your local documents add the following RegKey

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Writer]
“PostsDirectory”=”A:\\Cloud-Mix\\Posts”
