WordPress app for your Android device

So I downloaded the Android WordPress app from the google Play store. Those who jumped right in probably would have noticed an error when attemping to login:

XMLRPC Fault: XML-RPC services are disabled onĀ  this site. An Admin user can enable them at http://www.yourblog.com/wp-admin/options-writing.php

The solution

We will need to enableRemote Publishing in the backend. The only caveat here is that you need to do this from your web browser before you try to login to your WordPress app.

Do the following (also see picture below):

  1. Login to your WordPress dashboard
  2. Click Settings > Writing from the left menu
  3. Scroll down to the section titled Remote Publishing and check the box XML-RPC
  4. Voila!
