Issue with WLW (xmlrpc) in latest version (12 posts)

    Upgraded to the latest WPMU version (v2.9.1) from v2.8.6. And new users are unable to "add a new blog account" to Windows Live Writer (WLW). Gives the following error...

    ---------------------------
    No Blogs Found on Server
    ---------------------------
    A successful connection was made to your account however the server
    reported that you do not currently have an active blog. Please ensure
    that your account with this provider is current before proceeding.
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------

    People who had already added their account to WLW can post fine. I tried a fresh install of v2.9.1 and it also does the same thing.

    However in v2.8.6 everything was working fine.

    XML-RPC is on on all blogs. User is an administrator. Using sub-directory structure for blogs. And using the latest version of PHP, Apache and MySQL if it makes a difference.

    Man. After looking a diff, I think I figured it out.

    In "wp_getUsersBlogs" (line 445), the following line...
    global $current_site;
    was removed in v2.9.1. Adding it back fixed the issue.

    Where can I file a bug report and get this fixed?

    You need to put a ticket into the trac :

    use the same login/password as here

    Ok. Filed it under 2.9 since I don't see a 2.9.1.

    You don't comment the line out - you add it in its not there.

    FYI: Just checked WLW on 2.9.2 and no problems with setting up a new WLW account.

    i am on 2.9.1.1. I uncommented the line global $current_site;

    i still get the message "A successful connection was made to your account however the server reported that you do not currently have an active blog. Please ensure that your account with this provider is current before proceeding."

    HOWEVER: this is only for the MAIN blog under the admin account, so the blog on the main domain.

    When I tested it with a user on a subdomain everything works PERFECT.

    So the problem is reduced to getting this to work for the admin account (me) on the main front page.

    update: it also work with "admin" on subdomain blog only not for the blog on the main front page/domain.

    Anyone can help me further on this?

    So it works for all users on all subdomains.

    Only for the main blog (admin) on the main domain it gives the familiar message "no active account found".

    Its now been a month and I haven't found a clue so I assume its a bug. I think for some sites the main blog returns a number and for other sites it doesn't for as far as I have read.

    So i'll enter an entry in TRAC.
