I get an error trying to load settings or publish and entry to my Windows Live Spaces (WLS) blog.
Q: I get an error trying to load settings or publish and entry to my Windows Live Spaces (WLS) blog. The WinJournal log tells me to check my user name and password, but I'm certain that I'm entering the correct information.
A: Communicating with the WLS blog from WinJournal requires that you use your 'spaces' name (not your user name) for your user name, and also requires that your password contain no special characters.
In WinJournal's Server Configruation dialog, enter the following information:
User Name: Enter your 'spaces' name. This is the name between the slashes and the '.spaces.live.com' in the URL for your WLS web page. For example, if your WLS web page URL is "http:// billgates.spaces.live.com/", enter "billgates" in the User Name field.
Password: Enter your WLS login password MINUS any special characters, like punctuation marks.
