WordPress App -Mobile Blogging

Leave a comment

This is my first post using the WordPress app that I installed on my iPhone ages ago and have not used.

Or rather, I recall that WordPress made the app for mobile blogging but it had some bugs.

The version I have installed is a later version but I did not keep up with the info on whether this latest version of the app is bug-free.

I couldn’t see a way to add images while I was typing but as soon as I tapped ‘Done’ I could see various options, which I will try now.


By the way, the image is a quick grab with my iPhone camera of a couple of the postcards I have stuck on the wall, and a poppy from Remembrance Sunday last year.

I published this short article and then saw that the image was over to the left.

Looking at the code here in the app I could see that the setting was alignnone.

I changed this to aligncenter and updated and it worked OK.

The update published very quickly, which is good.

Publishing is a bit fiddly but I was able to add in a non-breaking-space before and after the image and to make the subheading bold.

I can see that with a bit of practice this could work!

Second Update
The WordPress app is said to work with WordPress self-hosted blogs. I tried to get it to work with a couple of my self-hosted blogs but as you will see for yourself if you look at the WordPress forums, the app is failing miserably on self-hosted blogs with many people unable to authenticate their username and password despite having everything set up correctly.

I had the same problem just now. Something that Automattic, the owners of WordPress, needs to work on.
