After installation, open the app. At the bottom of the sign-in screen, select "Add Self-Hosted Site".

The next screen will ask for your Username, password, and the Site Address (URL) of your blog. Use your Georgetown net ID (not your full email address) and password. For the Site Address, type in your URL, adding "/xmlrpc.php" to the end. For example, "https://blogs.commons.georgetown.edu/abc123/xmlrpc.php". If this does not work, you may have to go through a troubleshooting process in the Help Center.
