WordPress 2.8.1 – XML-RPC and AtomPub Changes

The 2.8.1 release of WordPress is now available. This is mostly a bug fix release so there are only a few small changes in the area of XML-RPC and no changes in AtomPub:

  • metaWeblog.getPost now returns the correct value for the date_created_gmt field for draft posts ( ticket #10244 )
  • RSD API endpoint URLs now use HTTPS if FORCE_SSL_ADMIN or FORCE_SSL_LOGIN is defined and true ( ticket #10330 )


  1. I am still getting this error when trying to upload pics

    The response to the metaWeblog.newMediaObject method received from the blog server was invalid:

    Invalid response document returned from XmlRpc server

    It was working in 2.7 fianlly but now here we go again with 2.8.1

  2. What does the XML-RPC response from the server look like?
