Qumana woes

Well, I was going to make this a really cool first post from Qumana, the easy to use desktop blog editor … but I can’t get it to connect to any of my WordPress.com accounts (I currently have nine!).

I get this error:

Error trying to retrieve your blog information.
sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path validation failed:

There may be more, but that’s all I can see.

I’ve got it to connect to the other place, which is a stand-alone WordPress.org installation but not to our Web Team blog which is another.

  1. When you see the error msg, click “Back”, find “Endpoint”, it begin with “https://”, change it to “http://”.
    Might be not secure because your password will send in pain text.

  2. Yes, thank you for the solution gray!
    I had the same problem on my XP home machine hoping to use Qumana for offline action for my wordpress blog & had the same error message.
    The solution worked, basically after you see the error, click “Back” button, change the url that begins with “https://”, and change it to “http://”.
