WordPress
If you are using wordpress.com, enter your wordpress.com username and password. Then in the URL field, enter https://<blog_url>.wordpress.com/.

Take note that the protocol is https:// not http:// .
For older app version, please include xmlrpc.php in the URL field. E.g. https://<blog_url>.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php


Self-hosted WordPress Site
If you are using self-hosted Wordpress, enter your self-hosted WordPress username and password. Then in the URL field, enter your self-hosted WordPress URL.

XML-RPC is not required for self-hosted WordPress in newer app version.

For older app version, please ensure that XML-RPC is enabled . XML-RPC functionality is turned on by default from WordPress 3.5. In previous versions of WordPress, XML-RPC was user enabled. To enable, go to Settings > Writing > Remote Publishing and check the checkbox. Enter your username and password. The URL should look like:

http://domain.com/<path_to_blog>/xmlrpc.php
https://domain.com/<path_to_blog>/xmlrpc.php
http://sub.domain.com/<path_to_blog>/xmlrpc.php
https://sub.domain.com/<path_to_blog>/xmlrpc.php

If you are unsure of the URL, you can test it from your browser. The correct page should output:

XML-RPC server accepts POST requests only.
