Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been working with SharpMT on Windows Vista (Beta 2). I noticed that I was getting an error when I refreshed Text Filters… I assumed it was something odd in Vista.
I was wrong – Text Filters via XML-RPC seem to be broken. Definitely is for TypePad; I have no idea if MT 3.3 has the same problem.
They work fine via the TypePad web pages; there’s no problem when posting drafts via SharpMT if you have the Text Filters already stored locally. There is a big problem if you are a new user of SharpMT and you are getting Text Filters for the first time: you can only select “None” since that’s the only default filter available.
I have an open service request with SixApart about this; someone else has reported a similar error so they’re already looking into it. The biggest down side to this is that the problem impacts all
three two versions of SharpMT: desktop and Pocket PC.
