WordPress config changes for Windows Live Writer

I’m using Windows Live Writer (version 2008, build 12.0.1370.325) to write my posts on this WordPress 2.6 blog.  To be able to do this I had to make a couple of changes to the default configuration of WordPress.

  1. Activate XML-RPC in Settings > Writing, by default this is disabled.
  2. Modify the upload folder in Settings > Miscellaneous.  By default this was “wp-content”.  I changed it to “wp-content/uploads” and I created the uploads folder manually on the server (with 777 rights).  This is the folder where the images will end up.

After these two changes I was able connect to the blog with WLW and post the article about the black background issue (which contains an image).
