Wordpress offers a great xmlrpc support using metaweblog Api for remote publishing. Users find it highly useful for posting on the fly, especially if you are running many blogs. With this you do not need to login to your blog time and again for posting. If you have ever used remote publishing for posting you must have noticed that inspite of its usefulness it presents you with some limitations.

Wordpress default xmlrpc has many limitations.

  1. Unable to add tags and categories for your post
  2. Include an excerpt with the post
  3. Add custom fields with key and value pair.
