Using Onenote to Manage your Blog

Monday, November 8th, 2010

This article was written and transmitted to this blog using Onenote.

We have recently received several requests from clients regarding Onenote. The single, most frequently asked question is, “How do I use Onenote to communicate with my Wordpress blog?”. Here’s the answer.

What do I need to know/do to Wordpress to make this work?

  1. The version of Wordpress that you’re running
    1. NOT RUNNING 2.6.0 or higher…
      1. Upgrade
    2. RUNNING THE RIGHT VERSION…
      1. Login to your administrative panel to activate XML-RPC communication
        1. Login > Settings > Writing
        2. Check the box to the left of, “Enable the Wordpress, Movable Type, MetaWeblog and Blogger XML-RPC publishing protocols”
        3. Login to the site using an FTP client (like Filezilla http://filezilla-project.org/download.php )
        4. Ensure that the “xmlrpc.php” file is in the website root directory.

How do I use Onenote to do this?

  1. Create a new page in one of your Notebooks within Onenote
  2. When you’re ready to upload it to the blog…
    1. From the main menu
      1. File > Send > Send to Blog
    2. Your post will appear in a new window. This new window controls the publishing of your post to a blog.
    3. Select ‘Manage Accounts’ from the ‘Blog Post’ tab in the main menu
      1. Select ‘New’
      2. Choose the ‘Blog’ – this is the type of blog you have – this example is focused on Wordpress
      3. Click the ‘Next’ button
      4. In the ‘Blog Post URL’ – enter your blog address
      5. Username and Password are the same credentials that you use to login to your Wordpress administrative area.
