    hey guys and girls

    Anybody knows if wordpress.com removed the XML-RPC API support? I'm looking in Settings>Writing and Dashboard>My Blogs and only have the Post by Email and Post by Voice options but not the XML-RPC option.

    Anybody cares to enlighten me what happened to XML-RPC option? did they remove it to avoid spam or what?

    Might not due to spam as you can still automate posting by email.

    Under Settings->Writing it still there in Wordpress 3.3.1

    Maybe your install is corrupt or a plugin has blocked it?

    I know this is a couple weeks old, but I came across this in a search and noticed no one answered...

    It seems that XML RPC posting is on by default for hosted Wordpress.com blogs. There's no longer an option, and I guess you can't turn it off. I just tested it on one of my blogs, and it worked fine.
