<h1 id="templates">XML-RPC Interface</h1>
-<p>WordPress has an XMLRPC interface. We currently support the <a href="http://www.blogger.com/developers/api/1_docs/">Blogger API</a>, <a href="http://www.xmlrpc.com/metaWeblogApi">metaWeblog API</a>, and the <a href="http://www.movabletype.org/docs/mtmanual_programmatic.html">MovableType API</a>. </p>
-<p>The <a href="http://www.xmlrpc.com/metaWeblogApi">metaWeblog</a> and <a href="http://www.movabletype.org/docs/mtmanual_programmatic.html">MovableType</a> APIs are currently supported with the following exceptions:</p>
-<ul>
- <li>mt.supportedTextFilters is a dummy stub function that returns an empty string</li>
- <li>keywords are not supported in the MovableType API</li>
-</ul>
-<p>Extended entries in the <a href="http://www.movabletype.org/docs/mtmanual_programmatic.html">MovableType API</a> are automatically converted to/from the WordPress <code>&lt;!--more--&gt;</code> tag.</p>
-<p>You can now post to your WordPress blog with tools like <a href="http://blogbuddy.sourceforge.net">BlogBuddy</a>, <a href="http://bloggar.com/">Bloggar</a>, <a href="http://www.ubique.ch/wapblogger/">WapBlogger</a> (post from your Wap cellphone!), <a href="http://radio.userland.com">Radio Userland</a> (which means you can use Radio's email-to-blog feature), <a href="http://www.zempt.com/">Zempt</a>, <a href="http://www.newzcrawler.com/">NewzCrawler</a>, and other tools that support the Blogging APIs! :)</p>
-<p>Your XMLRPC server/path are as described here: if you login to WordPress on <code>http://example.com/me/wp-login.php</code>, then you have:</p>
-<ul>
- <li>Server: <code>http://example.com/</code> (some tools will just want the 'example.com' hostname part)</li>
- <li>Path: <code>/me/xmlrpc.php</code></li>
- <li>complete URL (just in case): <code>http://example.com/me/xmlrpc.php</code></li>

<h1>Post via Email</h1>
<p>You can post from an email client! To set this up go to your &quot;Writing&quot; options screen and fill in the connection details for your secret POP3 account. Then you need to set up <code>wp-mail.php</code> to execute periodically to check the mailbox for new posts. You can do it with Cron-jobs, or if your host doesn't support it you can look into the various website-monitoring services, and make them check your <code>wp-mail.php</code> URL. </p>
<p> Posting is easy: Any email sent to the address you specify will be posted, with the subject as the title. It is best to keep the address dicrete. The script will <i>delete</i> emails that are successfully posted. </p>
