Posted on 01 December 2009

Windows live writer is an important tool that is used by almost every blogger for the purpose of blogging.

Step by Step Guide

Following is a step by step guide on how to configure windows live writer for your wordpress blog.

Step 1:

First of all you have to enable XML-RPC publishing option in your wordpress blog. You can find it under Writing> remote publishing.

Step 2:

Now you have to open Windows Live writer, then you have to click on Blogs and then click on Add blog account.

Step 3:

A window will open in front of you, you will see four options there, from that you have to select other blog service, that is the last option.

Step 4:

In the first field you have to enter your Blog URL and then enter your username and password in their respective fields. Here I suggest you to click on Remember password option, otherwise it will prompt you for password at every stage.

Step 5:

After a while it will ask you for the option to make a temporary post so that it can detect the blog theme. Click on yes. In this way whatever formatting you will do, that will be the exact copy of your blog theme. After the test post, automatically that post will be removed.

Step 6:

Your final Set up will be that you have to enter your blog nick name.

So here you go, now your windows live writer is setup to publish posts directly from your desktop.
