Buddypress and anything that accesses the xmlrpc

  • rodtrent


    With Buddypress enabled, blogging clients that access the xmlrpc cannot connect and give an error message of: blogger.getUsersBlogs method received was invalid: Invalid response document returned from XmlRpc server.

    With Buddypress disabled, blogging clients can connect fine.

    In relation, this also affects JetPack and is the reason why Buddypress must be disabled before JetPack can be connected to WordPress.

    Something in Buddypress is either a) locking the XmlRpc file, b) changing the standard XmlRpc api calls, or c) something else.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    OK…just wanted to post the fix for this. I’ll let the JetPack folks know, too.

    To fix this, locate the class-IXR.php file in the \wp-includes directory. Then, locate the following line, comment it out (//) and save it:

    header(‘Content-Length: ‘.$length);

    What versions of WordPress, BuddyPress, and Jetpack are you using?



    All the latest of everything, but this has been an issue for 4 months.

    This has been an issue for a while, though no one has invested time into figuring out exactly what the problem is. My guess is something to do with ajax requests being too greedy, but I have no evidence to support that.
