What’s New

Version 18.2

- 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 alphabetized 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!

Just don’t bother with it

I guess it works for some people, but you might as well skip the native app and go edit your site straight on the Web. Why?

- If you write a draft in the app and you lose Internet connection while it’s trying to save the draft, say goodbye to it. It will endlessly try to save the post even after you reconnect and you won’t be able to stop it and use the app again. You can only force quit the app and restart it, but your draft will be gone. The draft isn’t even saved locally within the app.

- The Gutenberg editor on the Web has all the flexibility you need, even on an iPad or iPhone. The editor in the app supports less than half the blocks you have in the Gutenberg editor. Even the Web app will save a local copy for your to restore if you ever exit you browser or it crashes.

I’m not sure what’s the advantage of using the native app. It’s features are actually quite limited compared to the Web one.

After I lost one too many drafts, I uninstalled the app. I’m done with it. Don’t bother with it and stick with the Web app.

Looping back with an update about the drafts. We tried testing on a few different types of sites by creating a draft then turning off the internet connection while the draft is saving and the drafts were saved and then uploaded as expected after the internet connection was restored. (WordPress-iOS/15098) I would like to learn more about your site setup and testing steps to see if I can find out what you're doing differently compared to our tests because losing a draft is a serious problem that we do not want to ignore. If possible, please try the test again and if the draft does not save, please take a screenshot of the error and immediately send it using the Contact Form in the Help & Support section of the app. If you don't want to reinstall to run this test, that's okay too and we will keep an eye out for additional reports in that case.

It'll kill my whole server every time I try to link my site with this app.
Even other Wordpress sites on the same server will be not available after something being triggered.
Chrome would say "err_connection_timed_out" and fortunately the situation will be fixed automatically within several hours.
I never experienced this before(last I was using this app was about 1 year ago). This problem is actually quite severe for people who run serious business on their Wordpress.
