1.13 MetaWeblog API (XML/RPC)
PivotX has a MetaWeblog API, so it supports XMLRPC MetaWeblog. XMLRPC clients include desktop blogging clients such as WBloggar, as well as online services such as Flickr. Currently, it is only capable of creating, modifying and deleting posts. Administrative and media functions must be performed from PivotX's web-based administration panel.
In your XMLRPC client, enter the URL to
example.org/pivotx/metaweblog.php) as the 'endpoint'. If your client asks for
a 'Blog ID' (or 'Site ID'), enter a case-sensitive blog name; use
if you are using the initial/default weblog. If your XMLRPC client supports
Really Simple Discovery (RSD), i.e. Flock, just use the the front page of
your blog as the 'endpoint'. (Clients that support RSD, normally just ask for a
blog's front page/URL.)
Normally all the text you post with your client is ending up in the introduction. If you want to split the text in two so the last part ends up in the body, just insert the word 'PIVOTX_BODY' (on a single line if you prefer) between the two parts.
If you want to tag the entry you post, just use normal tt template tags in the text.
This list isn't exhaustive - please notify us of any other clients that you have used successfully.

- Posts that are sent through MetaWeblog are directly published as raw HTML
(no processing). Most clients send raw HTML anyway so this isn't usually a
problem. If you find your posts showing up without their formatting, you should
be able to change this by searching for the line
$conversion_method=0and changing the '0' to '1' for line breaks, '2' for textile, '3' for Markdown and '4' for Markdown + Smartypants.
- Administrative 'superusers' can only edit their own posts. You have to use the web interface if you need to edit others' posts.
