– Stay informed! You can now receive a weekly summary of the activity on your most popular sites.
– You have even more control of your site comments – when you edit them you can now also adjust the author’s name, email address, and web address.
We have made a couple of handy tweaks to the Block editor. The Embed block now gives you a sneak preview when you add something from YouTube or Twitter (more providers to come). Also, when you go to insert a block and nothing is found, there is now a no results view.
– If you go to Post Settings > Post Format, you will find the “Standard” option still at the top, but the other options are now neatly alphabetised below. (Options will vary with themes!)
– And one more quick one: refreshing your site is now super easy – just pull to refresh from the My Site screen!
Ratings and Reviews
A must-have app for anyone with a site
I was sceptical about Wordpress on iOS at first but I shouldn’t have been. It has most - if not all - of the features that the desktop dashboard has, with the link to WP Admin directly on the app. This is great if you’re travelling light because all you really need is an iPad. Somethings are better kept to a laptop or desktop, but if you need to do some light publishing on-the-go then there’s nothing wrong with it. If you aren’t too confident at SEO then the WP Admin site or the desktop dashboard is better, as Yoast SEO doesn’t seem to work on the mobile version (at least for me). If you have a blog, or a site that you publish to regularly, you might even consider the switch for that added mobility...
App just gets worse!
Update: every time I upload a photo into a post on my iPad pro then go to edit the post on a computer all the images have moved from the center to the left hand side-incredibly frustrating when you have several pictures in a post, I have to make sure all the pictures are in the post before I move them to the center so adding a picture later is now impossible!!
I frequently use this app to quickly update my posts or reply to comments, I can't fault the comments but trying to access the correct post is a nightmare. I have almost 300 posts but when I search for the one I need it never finds anything, so I have to scroll through the whole list (with the unnecessarily large pictures so it takes longer) to find the one I want. Maybe we could have a month posted button so we can find a post that we need from the month it was posted?
And when I finally get to update I usually have to add pictures which since updating has become another problem, I can add a picture then the bar to add another disappears so I have to save and go back (and refind the post because it always goes right back to the top)
So much hassle!!
Lovely to write with, terrible for photos
My primary blog is one that focuses on photography. I would love to write with this app all the time - really, I would. But unfortunately this app, as it has done for many, many years, still struggles to deal with images properly. You can’t resize them precisely as you can in the old-school browser editor - you only get three size options, many of which equate to the same thing depending on your theme. Captions simply don’t work properly, it just sticks them as inline text, completely indifferent to your theme style. When adding media you can’t only view images uploaded t that particular post, making it difficult to find the images I’m after.
So despite everything, in order to finish my posts and publish them, I have to go to the desktop browser to add and refine the images, which makes the app pointless in that regard.
This said, the app is great when I want to update one of my other, non-photo-centric blogs, because for writing it works really well.
