FAQ

How do I know if the plugin is working?

There are two easy methods for checking if XML-RPC is off. First, try using an XML-RPC client, like the official WordPress mobile apps. Or you can try the XML-RPC Validator, written by Danilo Ercoli of the Automattic Mobile Team – the tool is available at http://xmlrpc.eritreo.it/ with a blog post about it at http://daniloercoli.com/2012/05/15/wordpress-xml-rpc-endpoint-validator/.
