My irritating web host (who I will not name here, for fear of providing them even limited advertising) has evidently blocked the ability to POST to the file “xmlrpc.php”… an integral part of using WordPress with a post application like BlogJet.
I’m sure they think they have their reasons, but all it does for me is totally piss me off. I was unsuccessful in getting ahold of their technical support team (who are, supposedly, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week). I’ll tip you off a little bit to who my webhost is by saying that I was calling this number to get technical support: 877–435–7281.
I was unable to get ahold of them because after the 30 seconds of “you should check our (totally useless) website to get the answer to your question”, the automated attendant simply disconnected the call. No matter what. I tried a dozen times, different numbers, selecting stuff from menus when I called different numbers. Evidently there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY TO GET AHOLD OF THESE PEOPLE FOR TECHNICAL SUPPORT.
But the good news is, I found a workaround (at least until they block it — at which point I am, without question, moving my several hosted sites to a different webhost and never looking back). If you’re getting the “410 Gone” error while posting, have a look at jkoole’s comments here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/48128.
