What’s New

Version 17.5

What’s new in WordPress release 17.5?

Reusable blocks are here! Create content once, save your block, and reuse it over and over again in any posts or pages. In 17.5, you’ll find reusable blocks ready to go in the block inserter menu.

If tapping to add new blocks is a menu tap too far, 17.5 lets you add them with a slash command right from the editor. Add a forward slash as you’re crafting your post or page, start tapping in the name of the block, and you’re all set. No menus necessary.

Audio gets some love, too. Got a link for that audio file? In 17.5 just paste your URL into the Audio Block, and WordPress will pull it into your post.

Like notifications also got some extra sparkle in 17.5. You’ll now be able to see exactly who liked every post and comment on your site as soon as they roll in.

We’ve also been hard at work bug-wrangling. Here’s what we fixed:

Screen readers can now select the stepper cell in the block editor.

We made sure that large text doesn’t become ENORMOUS text, whatever font you’re using. Large text support in the blog details header of the My Sites screen has also been improved.

Finally, item selection and fixed scrolling in the Plugins directory are now behaving themselves, and the Noticons font will no longer crash the app in rich notifications.

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.
