Word cannot publish this post

Posts are an essential part of a blog. They are typically journal-like entries that contain information, ideas, and opinions. They are displayed in chronological order, starting with the most recent posts.

You can create a post on a SharePoint blog by using a Web browser, if you have permission to contribute to the Posts list. You don't need additional tools or programs to create content, add pictures, apply formatting, and insert hyperlinks. To post comments to a blog, you must have permission to contribute to the Comments list. In some cases, comments must be approved before they will appear on the site.

Problem Description:
User attempts to publish the Blog post from Word 2010 to SharePoint Blog it fails with following error message  

Word cannot publish this post

To verify the error message that you receive, press Ctrl+Shift+I. The following number is displayed in the lower-right corner of the error message dialog box:


Probable Cause:
The error is due to Document opened in Compatibility Mode (.doc) format the .doc format disables the features required to publish the Document to Blog Site. While reviewing Blog Template in Word 2010 noticed some of the options were grayed out. Example: Home Page, Insert Category, Open Existing Icon. 

Following settings were configured in User workstation:   

1.   File | Options | Save | Save Files in this format | Word 97 – 2003 Document Format (*.doc)
2.   File | Options | Advanced | Scroll to Compatibility Options | Lay out this document as if created in Microsoft Word 2003

This is working as designed and to work around the issue user needs to switch the document format (*.docx).

If you have any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information then please let me know.
I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues J Thank you.
