Solving the 401 Error: Windows Live Writer & Remotely Hosted Blogger Blogs

I finally figured out why I couldn’t get Windows Live Writer to recognize my blog.

If your blog is remotely hosted (meaning on your server), you have to add this in the head area of your template:

<meta content=”blogger” name=”generator”/>

After that it works like a charm.

Too bad it took me about two hours to figure that out…
