Word recently stopped working with WordPress: Solution found

January 13, 2015

What has happened to the Microsoft Word connection that I use for publishing on WordPress?

Gone?

Switched off on the WordPress end?

Does anyone know a work around?

Turns out the solution is very simple:

Change preferences for your account in word from:

http://yoursitename.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php

to

https://yoursitename.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php

Everythign else should remain the same.

Looks like wordress have decided that HTTPS is better than HTTP.
