Hi folks! So I’ve been looking for a way to post to my ITKE from my BlackBerry and I think I have found the way. With the help of ITKE’s Michael Morisy he has pointed me in the direction of Christina Warren’s blog which gives detailed instructions on how to accomplish this.

The first thing you will need is for Michael to enable XML-RPC on your blog. Send him an email with your blog URL and he can enable this for you. Only e-mail Michael if you have a blog here on ITKE, this does not apply to people who don’t have ITKE blogs. If you have a blog elsewhere you would have to email your blog administrator.

The next thing you need to do is install the BBMetaBlog application on your BlackBerry. Then run the app and open the config and enter your WordPress username and password. Then in the section that asks for your Access URL, enter your ITKE blog URL followed by /xmlrpc.php. So http://blogurl/xmlrpc.php. So for example, my blog url is http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/it-consultant

So I would enter: http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/it-consultant/xmlrpc.php

You can use this to post new posts, but most of the other functionality I couldn’t get to work such as downloading categories or editing existing posts.

A big thank you to Christina Warren for posting the details on how to do this!
