You need to activate XML-RPC inside of WordPress Admin > Settings > Writing then your connection should work.
That said I've not been able to overcome problems with publishing using CS4 Contribute, keeps giving lost draft error messages, then it starts throwing JS errors when you tell it to dump the draft as it can't find it and you are stuck. Looking around there appears to be (from looking at multiple posts & messages) a general issue without solution. Despite removing all Contribute preferences, local files, all connections, all .lck _note _mm files server and client side, no dice and recreating. I've given up.
Maybe CS5 Contribute fixes these issues? Anyone know?
Can you please upload the screenshot of the lost draft error message? And also possible attach the JS error message also.
Thanks for your offer of trouble-shooting help, I've done a complete screen-by-screen document as a PDF in a link for you to look at. Couldn't find a way to upload it to this post, so this location is going to be temporary for the file.
If you can help me I would be most grateful, otherwise the product isn't working even for the simplest action, if you try to change anything you are dead in the water.
Forgot to include that I've looked at the blog connection settings, under "Other Blog Servers" and it has the /blog/xmlrpc.php settings all checked for images, audio, video and all features have green checkmarks.

WordPress version is 3.0.1 using the standard "TenTwenty" theme modified to my clients website.
Please try changing the permalink setting in the WordPress server from "Default" to any other option (Day and name or Month and name or Numeric or Custom Structure).
That's the one thing I can't do right now. The website & customized (and integrated) blog all share the same menu structure in a common Dreamweaver library item. So when you update the library item for the menus, this update is shared across both website and blog. Currently the menus are relatively addressed, for example:
This works as long as the blog doesn't use sub-directories to file its posts, created by changing the permalink setting in the WordPress server.
Once you introduce sub-directories then you have to use full URL references to make a shared library item for the menu across website & blog work, for example:
What I'll do is setup another test website / blog arrangement and try your suggestion to see if it fixes the issue.
Would having Contribute setup for both website & blog cause a problem? This is how things are now, the first time I've tried this combo.
You can have connection to both Websites and Blogs. There is no problem.
This Default permalink issue is not reproducible in Contribute CS5.
I'll download a trial version of Contribute CS5 and see if that fixes the issue before doing anything else. Greatly appreciate your input and suggestions. This may be a few days as this week is busy.
