How do I find out and change if necessary the blog id? I am wondering if it is somewhere in the admin panel??? I am trying to access the xml rpc library (from AS3) and it is asking for the blogid.

wordpress = new WordPress("","/blog/xmlrpc.php","blog_id_here", "visitor", "visitor");

    A little. If you look at the xml-rpc page it shows what I am trying to do. I'm trying to make that call,

    For example,

    Get the page identified by the page id.

        * int blog_id
        * int page_id
        * string username
        * string password

    Where is that defined? Is it through the admin panel?

    Unless you're using WordPress mu, the blog_id should be 0 (zero).

    Interested to know if this works.

    By the way, it's stored in the "options" table of the DB.

    thanks. you are correct. the blog id is 0. fyi, in the current version of wordpress this value makes no difference. the issue for me was i had to upgrade to wordpress 2.2.2 for the xmlrpc call to work.
