Is it possible to create multiple posts in one XML-RPC request? I've searched everywhere, but did not find any info. I suppose it isn't possible.

Short answer? No.

There is a finite list of methods exposed by the XML-RPC interface, and the ones that allow you to create new posts dictate that you create one post at a time.

Given, you could always write your own method to allow for bulk post creation, but you should ask a new question if you want to go that route.

  • Yeah, I know I can extend XML-RPC, but the idea here was to do this without any development on the WP side. Too bad, we can't do that. Btw, as I know, wordpress doesn't even have any function to create multiple posts "locally", am I correct? I did not find any function for this. Jul 13, 2012 at 8:50

    Correct. The closest you will come is the WordPress importer which is, itself, a plugin. In any case, your best bet is to just loop through the posts and make multiple calls to the XML-RPC new post method.
