I cant personally blog anymore while being logged in a web editor (being either in the frontend or the backend of Joomla). I like to prepare my articles offline. Unfortunately XML-RPC plugins have been removed out of the core of Joomla 1.7 and are not maintained anymore (an error for me). And here is how to bring back this nice feature working in Joomla 1.7

Install this extension Blogging XMLRPC for Joomla!&160; (direct link to download) and then follow the tutorial.

In short, the tutorial explains you to publish these 2 extensions plugins

  • XMLRPC – Joomla
  • System - RSD
  • You can now start your favorite XML-RPC client, I personally use

  • Or Get ScribeFire for FirefoxChromeSafariOpera
  • If you use Windows Live writer and add your blog, it will AutoDetect all settings.
