Can't set-up account on WinPhone 7.5

  1. Hello,
    I’m having troubles setting up my blog account on WinPhone.
    This is a self hosted site (WP 3.4.2), running at http://blog.rabaté.fr. It is currently empty. It tried the fix number 3 posted in FAQ (I can’t add my blog to the app, what do I do?). I’m still having the following error message: An exception occured during a WebClient request.
    Could you let me know how this could be fixed ?
    Thank you

  2. Hey Nicolas,

    I'm sorry to hear about the trouble. I've opened a ticket for this this bug. You can follow its progress here.

  3. Hey Nicolas, the app doens't support internationalized domain names. Try to add your blog by using the following URL:

    Note: Les services XML-RPC sont désactivés sur ce site. Un administrateur peut les activer à

  4. Hello,
    This is the first thing I tried. Same error message. In the meantime I activated the XML-RPC services which seems to be needed to get WP for WinPhone working. Any clue on how to fix this?*
    Thank you

  5. Stil can't log to my blog account despite two recent updates of WordPress on WinPhone. Any change this will be fixed? Thank you,

  6. Unfortunately the trac ticket about internationalized domain names is still open. Would you mind to create a test account for us to test with? You can email the details to mobile at automattic dot com


  7. Yes of course I will set-up an account for you. I'll keep you posted at the address you mentioned

  8. What are the rights needed?
    Thank you

  9. Could you please let me know what rights are needed for this test account?
    Thank you

  10. You should setup an account with 'Editor' role.

  11. All right. Connection information have been sent to the mentionned address.

  12. Did you get a solution for this? I'm having the same problem but with my wp8 phone, so I really would like to know how you fixed it! I have tried the "translated" version with xn--***.xmlrpc.php and i have followed the faq how to check if xmlrpc is ok, and I get the right answers...

    I have no more ideas, and I really miss being able to update my page with my phone since I changed from Android....

  13. @Lothnir - Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) are not supported in WindowsPhone at the moment. Only a software upgrade from MS can fix it, but no ETA at the moment.
