Error Getting Blog ID

Postby chuckevans » 06.10.2006 19:38

I just downloaded and trying to install Blogdesk recommended by Paul Short. I'm using Wordpress 2.04 and have used other blogging tools - such as the new Windows tool, Gumana, and a host of others.

I keep getting this error though and cannot complete the setup,

"XML Parser has reported a WININET.dll error, description is: 12029 - A connection with the server could not be established."


I know my server is up and running because I'm looking at the blog right now.

The blog url is www.howtobuildyourgolfswing.com

Thanks a bunch and BlogDesk looks great - I can't wait to see it in action!

Open your Internet Explorer and check if the Offline mode in the File menu is activated. If yes, deactivate it.

Nope it is isn't activated. I just tested using Blogjet and Windows Live and it worked fine...

Thanks,

I don't know if you tried www.howtobuildyourgolfswing.com or howtobuildyourgolfswing.com (without www) as the URL of your blog, but try it the other way.

Tried both ways and get the same error. In fact when I put in,
howtobuildyourgolfswing.com then went back the software had placed http:// in front of it.

Anyone have any other ideas? I'd really like to give Blogdesk a try but at this point I can't even get it set up!

Thanks,

chuck

OK, it appears that no one has any more ideas so I'm deleting the program.

Problem 'solved': the user mixed some things up and didn't even have a blog.
