As you may have seen in a recent post, I asked for volunteers to help me test my code fix for the issue where the iPhone app couldn’t find the XMLRPC endpoint for a blog. Around 15 l brave volunteers stepped forward and I’m glad to report that in those cases where that specific problem was the issue, the new code allowed the app to get to the endpoint successfully.
Many thanks to the volunteers for answering e-mails and changing settings etc. This fix will be going into the next release.
For those who enjoy detail – the new code avoids using an XML parse to find the information and instead goes after it directly with a couple of regular expressions. In the rare case where this does not find the endpoint, the application gives the user an opportunity to enter the XML-RPC endpoint directly via a new screen in the application.
