Using Drivel To Update WordPress!
Okay, so I’ve finally got Drivel to word properly with my wordpress blog.
You can download drivel from their homepage at
or if your running ubuntu, it is already in the repository so you can simply install it
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install drivel
Configure Drivel with WordPress
Open Drivel (Application->Internet->Drivel)
- Enter Password
- Select ‘Movable Type’ for the Journal Type
- Type in your blogs address ie
- Add xmlrpc.php at the end of your blog ie
- Log In
After you have logged in, you will be given a screen like this (See Figure 3). Now here is the hard part, finding something worth blogging about, and pressing the ‘Post’ button.
You also have the option to save your draft locally, this comes in handy if you don’t have access to the Internet, and feel like blogging about something. It allows you to write your blog, save it, and then post it the next time you connect to the Internet.
