WordPress XMLRPC Integration

A Client of mine contacted me concerning an integration project for WordPress. Luckily, I had worked with WordPress off and on for several years. It’s a very alluring Content Management System for small businesses. It does provide an XMLRPC API for integration work. A WordPress integration Library was developed for a CodeIgniter application to integrate product data to the WordPress application. The integration required a couple of custom API methods be created for the WordPress XMLRPC API. The result was an effective one way integration of product data into a WordPress application.
