Trying to connect Ulysses and any other third party blogging app, get error

I am trying to connect Ulysses to my blog and get an error: "failed to connect. please verify your blog URL". Same error happens when I try to connect any other third party blogging app. Quick Google search showed the issue is the treatment of XML-RPC by Go Daddy. Has anyone experienced anything similar and how can this be fixed? Go Daddy online chat app is offline for the last two days and I cannot get any help from them.

I'm curious, and you may have already checked this, but is XML-RPC enabled on your cPanel hosting? You should be able to check by logging into your cPanel installation, going to Select PHP Version, and checking to see if the XML-RPC extension is turned on. I know it may seem simple but I've seen people miss it.

Hi @stasyunya

Welcome to our forums! I'm not quite familiar with Ulysses, hopefully one of our other community members can chime in and help you out.

Did you ever get a resolution on this? I have also been trying to use Ulysses to no avail

@pbattisson 

 

Can you give us a bit more information on what you're seeing? I'm not familiar with Ulysses but it looks like a third-party app for blogging. 

 

I guess the big question would be exactly what are you trying to do and what steps have you taken to do it?

Hi Joe

 

Its a writing app, there is an option to connect to a custom hosted Wordpress site (i.e. something on GoDaddy and not Wordpress.com). I have supplied the URL and login details but it says there was an error. As mentioned previously it looks like GoDaddy have not enabled some feature or that it is locked down. IU was hoping someone could give an official response.

 

Thanks

 

Paul
