Is there MetaWeblog API support in the OPML Editor blogs?

Has anyone out there had any luck in using the metaWeblog API to post to their blog?

I can do it with a WordPress blog, and I assumed Dave’s system would support it. There are references to it in the .root files.

I tried to send an xmlrpc message (metaWeblog.newPost) to: with a path of /RPC2 to port 5337 – with the appropriate parameters (I hope)

The server replied that metaWeblog was not defined. I’m quite suprised by this. I must be doing something wrong. Anyone got any ideas?

Also, does anyone know where I might find a list of blogging system which support the metaWeblog API? I notice that is moving over to the ATOM API, which makes life slightly more complicated.

    Still looking for this myself. Did you resolve the issues?

    Hi there.
    Amazingly not. I was almost certain Dave would have had this on the server software.

    Most bizarre.

Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
