A Note For Users Of MarsEdit And Movable Type 3.2

After upgrading to Movable Type 3.2, I found I couldn’t post to my weblog using MarsEdit and, since a cursory Googling didn’t help, here’s what you need to do if you’re stuck too:

  1. Log into MT
  2. Click on your username in the top navbar to go to your profile
  3. Scroll down to the bottom where you see “API Password”
  4. Input the password of your choice and save. For security reasons, it should be different from your normal password
  5. Use that password in your client software

I imagine the same goes for Ecto and other remote clients.

The above instructions are taken from the XML-RPC and Atom client setup page in the documentation for the beta version of Movable Type 3.2. Funnily enough, the beta documentation would seem to be the best resource available, since the official User Manual for 3.2 is, er, still in beta.
