    I wanted to try to use an autoblog I found in these forums, but I can't log into wordpress with Filezilla or smartftp. So, I wanna know what i'm doing wrong. For the hostname, do you put your websites url? And the user and pass is your account info for your site right?

    You can't ftp to wordpress.com - you have to have WordPress installed on your own domain, if you want to be able to ftp.
