How to Configure Microsoft Word to write blog posts in WordPress

I don’t know how I have missed this feature in word. I have previously used Microsoft live writer for writing blog posts but then it was bundled with some other Microsoft products and became totally useless.

It’s a happy accident today, when I learnt that the same facility is available via word and it’s inbuilt. So here am I writing about this using the facility.


The setup is simple. Here are the steps

Step 1

File ->New -> Blog Post -> Create    


Step 2

Click Register Now.

Step 3

Choose your blog provider


Step 4

Enter the WordPress detail. This may be different for other providers.


Step 5


Last warning and you are done…

If you face any errors, check the blog url, changing http:// to https:// helped in my case.

Happy writing!
