Fixing a Broken org2blog Configuration

I used to have a working set-up of org2blog. Somewhere along the way, it got borked. I couldn’t login. I tried fixing it a few times, but I couldn’t get the problem resolved. Today, I finally got org2blog working. Key piece is setting the gnutls-algorithm-priority.

Use the instructions at the org2blog site:

https://github.com/org2blog/org2blog/wiki/Usage

Do everything it says, such as install the dependencies, create a ~/.netrc file with wordpress as the machine name, and so forth. After creating .netrc, limit access by doing: $ chmod 600 ~/.netrc. Then, replace the blog credentials .emacs code with the following:

;; org2blog 
(require 'org2blog-autoloads) 
(require 'netrc) 
(setq gnutls-algorithm-priority "NORMAL:-VERS-TLS1.3") 

;;; org2blog hydra hooks                                                       
(defun my/org2blog/wp-mode-hook-fn ()                                          
  (local-set-key (kbd "M-9") #'org2blog/wp-hydra/body)                         
  (local-set-key (kbd "M-0") #'org2blog/wp-complete-category))                 
(add-hook 'org2blog/wp-mode-hook #'my/org2blog/wp-mode-hook-fn) 

;;; org2blog authentication                                                    
(require 'auth-source)                                                         
(let (credentials)                                                             
        (add-to-list 'auth-sources "~/.netrc")                                 
        (setq credentials (auth-source-user-and-password "wordpress"))         
        (setq org2blog/wp-blog-alist                                           
              `(("blogname"                                                 
                 :url "https://blogname.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php"           
                 :username ,(car credentials)                                  
                 :password ,(cadr credentials)                                 
                 :default-title "Insert title"                                 
                 :default-categories ("comments")                              
                 :tags-as-categories nil))))                                   
(setq org-src-fontify-natively t) 

I posted this using org2blog with this configuration.
