Why the list of options available here


doesn’t match this https://codex.wordpress.org/Option_Reference

For example default_category or blog_public fields are not available on XML-RPC.

I don't think there's a great reason for the disparity, what do you propose we add?

#2 @SergioEstevao

I think it will good to add all the ones that that are on the documentation of XML-RPC as available.

The attached changes have been/are being tested, so far so good. I'll update here if I notice anything.

Edit: Realized I didn't add descriptions to most of the fields. I'll upload another attachment.

Ping @wonderboymusic

There's a feature being merged into WordPress for Android that needs to toggle based on the version that this ticket will be launched in. Do you have info on the expected release date and version?

#5 @dd32

@tonyrankin 4.5 at the earliest, however a good reason for exposing the options would be appreciated. I don't see most of them being useful for a content publishing client (which is what the XML-RPC is for mostly)

It looks like this is related to https://github.com/wordpress-mobile/WordPress-Android/issues/3434

The mobile apps try to support WP.org when possible, we're working on exposing site settings to our users. There's a way to change these settings for WP.com users via the REST-API but our self-hosted users will have no way to modify (or even read) their settings.

Use case: default_post_format - used to pre-select post_format in the client editor.
Ref: https://github.com/wordpress-mobile/WordPress-Android/issues/4580

@dd32: Would a smaller patch that just exposes the default post format be okay here? That would help us resolve this user's issue (the one @daniloercoli linked).
