read title that hapends when writer 2012 try install blog theme
Try doing that on an older version (e.g. 2008), and it will work.
i’m having the same issue with live writer 2011
i will create a new blog in wordpress
well I found out how to kind-of fix it
After I set up Live Writer 2009, I found that it too couldn’t download the blog theme. Also, the config had changed itself to the main site. To fix it, I went into the config again and changed the homepage set to http://escargotspaces.com/<username here> and set the remote posting path to http://escargotspaces.com/<username here>/xmlrpc.php and then Live Writer was able to download the theme.
That’s how it should look at the end:
user or blog
