First Big WordPress Question

OK folks, here’s the first thing I do need help with. I’m not sure if it is a WordPress issue or an Ecto issue, but when I publish these posts, they are categorized as the category I select as well as Uncategorized each time, even when I pick only the one category plus set it to “primary.” What’s going on here, and is it an Ecto issue or a WordPress issue?

Update: Adriaan of Ecto left a comment that points to the solution, and the bug is in the WordPress XML-RPC code. That explains why it only happened when publishing from Ecto and not using the web interface.

    Getting better all the time. May I suggest:

    A Journal of geekery, music, joy and misery

    Don’t know… should not be lopsided. What do you think?

    How off bass would one have to be in order to be moderated into oblivion?

    I’ve never moderated a comment based on what it says, only for spaminess. That’s the main impetus for me changing over, all the tools for things that are drags in blosxom are pretty sweet in wordpress.

    That’s been driving me nuts as well.. I also use Ecto + WP.

    Adriaan… I’d also like to say thanks.. I’m going to do the “hack” to mine as well.
