MT4 and Flickr – solved!

For anyone else out there who has been experiencing the same issues as me with automated MovableType 4 entries from the Flickr blog post utility this one is for you. I have to confess that I let this drop but only yesterday decided to try and figure it out again. Here are the steps:


  1. Log into MovableType and go to your profile page by clicking on your username or the edit profile link if you haven’t changed the basis MT4 layout.
  2. Scroll down to your web services password and click the reveal link that will pop up an alert window with your password – copy this somewhere handy.
  3. Log into Flickr and go to http://www.flickr.com/blogs.gne to view your blog settings.
  4. Click add blog and choose MetaWeblogAPI Enabled from the drop down menu.
  5. Enter your usual blog user id and enter the web services password that you copied earlier as your password
  6. Save the settings and you should be able to post away happily.
  7. Note, I’m still getting the failed message that I was always getting even though the blog post of the flickr image was successful, not sure why but don’t really care either. One problem at a time. 🙂
Hope this helps some of ye!
