I am using a mac and I would like to use Ulysses to publish to my Wordpress site.
I setup a Wordpress site using one-click setup, and everything is perfect. I’m happy with the outcome, and I don’t think there is any issue on Wordpress end. However, when I try to add the Wordpress account to Ulysses for Mac, it fails.
I contacted the company behind Ulysses and they said, “use SSL, lol.” When I said I tried that with no change, they stopped responding. I have tried asking them for some response and still have received absolutely nothing.
The error it reports is, “Failed to login. Please verify the URL of your blog.” This occurs regardless of whether I put in a correct username and password or not. The thing is, if I use an invalid certificate, it asks if it should trust the invalid certificate, so the error is clearly bogus.
I am wondering if there’s anything I need to enable on the barebones Wordpress setup I currently have to make other services connect? I figured I’d ask, especially if someone had the same plan as I.
Thanks for your help. I paid too much for this app and their silence to their customers has made me sure to not recommend them. On the other hand, digitalocean has been nothing short of awesome every time I’ve asked for help, so I’m hoping someone can help me out even though this is not an issue directly related to them (and the answer may help someone out in the future!).
