Newbie-Have Blog & Live Writer Installed-->Unable to connect to Blog RRS feed

  • Question

  • OK, I know I'm out of my element here and I hoping someone can help me though.  I want to use Live Writer to publish a post to my WordPress blog.  Bluehost provides a server for my WordPress blog.  I just cannot figure out what Live Writer's configuration wants in order to allow me to publish to my blog.  I'm banging my head against the wall trying to figure out what to do.

    Do I need to add proxy server info?  If so, how do I know what I am suppose to enter?
    How do I know the remote posting URL for my blog?  Or is this even relevant?

    Am I missing some other key points?

    I'm on the latest WordPress version.

    Thanks for your patience with my naive questions.

  • You should just need to the URL to your blog, and your username/password if there is nothing special with your setup.  If that isnt working, and the wizard is asking for more information something is wrong.  In that case, if possible, can you send the URL to your blog and I can see if I notice anything that is different then normal.
