Description

Can't post using Ecto b/c categoryID should be string not int

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

FROM http://nslog.com/2007/01/23/categoryid_in_wordpress_21_breaks_ecto/

When requesting new information in ecto (via "Refresh"), ecto attempts to retrieve the last 15-20 or so entries, their categories, their dates, etc. WordPress 2.1 sends this:

<member><name>categoryId</name><value><int>7</int></value></member>

It should send this:

<member><name>categoryId</name><value><string>7</string></value></member>

This patch is well tested on WordPress.com since 12/10/06 and was not previously merged in error.

I just applied the patch to my Wordpress 2.1 install as Lloyd suggestd on the Testers mailing list. Works like a charm. Thank you.
