2.1. The Settings

While each sports its own particular preferences, all the Blogger API-based applications hold certain API-specific settings in common, usually:


Username

The username with which you identify yourself to your blogging system.


Password

The password associated with your username.


XML-RPC URL

The URL of your blog system's Blogger API interface (the default is often Blogger's http://plant.blogger.com/api/RPC2/). Sometimes this is broken up into Server and Path settings (e.g., Server http://plant.blogger.com, Path /api/RPC2/).


Weblog ID

Many blog systems support multiple weblogs — for example, with only one installation of Movable Type, you can publish as many different weblogs as you like. Some desktop clients understand the concept of multiple weblogs and will let you select the blog to which a particular post is to go. Others require you to hardcode the ID of a particular blog. A Blogger ID is a string, such as myblog, while Movable Type uses numerical IDs.
