Posting Markdown to WordPress from Editorial

Since switching to Squarespace from WordPress I have not had much of a chance to use my posting script for the Editorial text editor for iOS. I received an email today though from Frank van Exter asking for assistance in using the workflow. Frank was very gracious and it was a nice opportunity to help someone use something I created.

Unfortunately my posting to the Editorial workflow site didn’t quite explain things clearly enough. Here are the two most important things to configure when using this workflow:

  1. Make sure the user that you are plugging in to the workflow has posting access to the blog you’re configuring.
  2. Enter your username and URL into the section of the workflow labeled “Get Connection Details”, not the variables at the beginning of the workflow.

A couple of things to note:

  1. The URL needs to have “/xmlrpc.php” appended to it.
  2. If you are using 2-factor authentication you need to generate a password for the workflow to use in the WordPress admin site.

Also, if you have to reset your password that is done by doing the following:

  1. In “Get Connection Details” slide the Reset Password switch to on.
  2. Run the workflow to reset the password.
  3. Run the workflow again to enter a new password.
  4. Go back into “Get Connection Details” and turn off the Reset Password switch.
