Setting Remote Blogging Options

Last Updated: June 4, 2007 4:51 PM

Blog owners can enable access to the MetaWeblog API, which allows authors to write and post blog entries from a third-party client. Enabling this option allows Quick Blogcast authors to create blog entries from desktop clients, online clients, and personal digitial assistants (PDA). Owners enable access through the Quick Blogcast Settings on the Remote Blogging tab.

After enabling access, blog authors need to set up the third-party client to work with Quick Blogcast. For more information, see Setting Up Third-Party Clients.

NOTE: Only blog owners need to enable access. Authors that the blog owner added must wait for the owner to enable access before they can use remote blogging.

To Set Remote Blogging Options

  1. From the Manage Blog menu, click Settings.
  2. Click the Remote Blogging tab.
  3. To set up remote blogging, select Enable remote blogging from third-party applications.
  4. In the Username field, specify the user name you want to use with the remote blogging account.

  5. In the Password and Verify Password fields, enter the password you want to use for the remote blogging account.
