What is the variable used for the "view" directory

  1. I have two blogs, using WordPress 2.5 and 2.6, both of which are customized so much they cannot be updated.

    WordPress for Windows Phone works fine on my 2.6 blog. It initially didn't work for my 2.5 blog, but once I copied over what was missing from the 2.5 xmlrpc.php file by getting it from the 2.6 file, I got it to work.I can add a post, add a page, edit comments or posts or pages so the important stuff all works.

    The one thing that doesn't work is to "view admin", "view site" or "view post" or "view comments" - and these all work on my 2.6 blog. I've spent a fair bit of time playing with various variables, but I can't find the one that WordPress for Windows is using to get the directory of the blog for viewing. I expect it's likely one of those in the config file, or the settings file, or maybe somewhere else. If I knew that, it shouldn't be hard for me to get the rest of my 2.5 implementation working.

    If someone could please tell me what is the WordPress variable used for the directory for viewing, I'd much appreciate it.

  2. The app works with and self-installed WordPress 2.9.2 or higher. You cannot make it working fine on 2.5, or 2.6.

    It works fine for me with 2.6.

    I only have the one glitch in 2.5 (mentioned above), but otherwise posting with it is no problem.

    There are no stats (because the Stats plugin didn't exist, probably until 2.9.2), but that's just a frill.

    Could you just clue me in as to which variable I have to work with in 2.5 to get the viewing working? It really is strange that I can add a post, add a page and edit a post in 2.5, but not view a post.


  4. Too many things changed under the hood in version 2.6, and there isn't an easy way to manually upgrade your installation of WordPress and make it compatible with the app.
    Also, the app was tested on WordPress 2.9.2 or higher, but we recommend to keep your installation of WordPress upgraded to the latest version.
