What’s New

Version 19.8.1

You can now upload videos of any length to self-hosted sites—the only limit is your own imagination. (Oh, and the 2 GB file size limit, we guess.)

When you Follow Conversation in Reader post cards and post details, in-app notifications are now opt-out rather than opt-in.

We replaced the quick-start prompt when you log in as an existing user. Now you can tell us what you’d like to focus on and enable notifications for things like site traffic, new followers, and other milestones. Cue confetti.

Ready for the grand tour? We made some tweaks to the Stats and Reader tours in the Quick Start section. Now you can move through the tours more smoothly and get more pointers and messages as you go.

We also made some sweet, sweet changes to the Block Editor.

- You can now adjust Featured Image settings for any posts in a Latest Post block.
- You’ll see the correct notices when you’re fast-switching between HTML and Visual mode.
- Media previews are no longer cut off when you edit a URL in an Embed block.
- If you’re using an iPad with an external keyboard, you’ll no longer see extra space between the toolbar and the bottom of the screen. Mind the gap.

Recent updates are amazing

Thank you for the recent updates!!! I actually think it’s easier to use than the website- which is great but I hope the website also gets better and Wordpress doesn’t become an app only thing...for longer posts I love to use my laptop and the web version because it easier to type a long post, but right now id rather type it on a google doc or something and copy and paste on my phone using the app. It’s very user friendly and the interface has been updated so much- it’s finally worthy of using and enjoying it. Before, the app looked so outdated and had limited capabilities- it’s finally been updated so you can virtually do anything you can online using your phone. I had some trouble uploading images but I believe this was an issue with a plugin and it was fixed. Sometimes the publish button doesn’t work properly and I have to save as a draft and go to my computer to publish, but I’m confident that has been fixed with the newest update (just downloaded so fingers crossed). Thank you sooo much for finally giving the app the attention it deserves!! Especially for the many creatives who use Wordpress, it’s important to be able to create and update our pages and posts on the go when we are inspired. So many times I have ideas that get written down in my phone notes and they never get turned into posts like i planned to- now I can open it up and make sure it gets done the minute I’m inspired. Thanks again!

Nice App, Missing Markdown Support, Custom Post Types + Custom Blocks

I’ve been developing WP sites since 2005 and decided to try the app. The app makes it pretty easy to add new posts on the fly from anywhere + works well with iCloud Drive. One thing that is strangely missing is being able to write posts in Markdown. I’ve been writing on my phone long before this app, so I am used to writing in Markdown for things like headings, lists, separators, etc that I would later copy + paste into the WP editor when back at my computer. Even on my computer I use markdown while writing posts because it saves on time. Alas, typing ## and the return key does not turn my block into an H2. My custom post types also don’t show up in the app, nor do any post types or blocks created by plugins. I’m hoping support for these things come soon - this app would be perfect if it did!

Limited functionality

Yes, it’s a mobile app, and ten years ago that would have justified its limited functionality and beta-like business, but not any more. The phone I use today has twice the computing power of the desktop computer I had when I first used WordPress. There’s simply no reason a Mobile app doesn’t have the same options I can get access to through a desktop computer. Add to that it’s inability to communicate properly with the desktop site (like how it almost never recognizes posts started, scheduled, or even published from the desktop) and it’s annoying built in bugs (it’s actually designed to pick up already used tags only after you type at least two letters (really? If I have to remember at least the first two letters then I’m actually forced to memorize them all... so what’s the point?).

I suggest the top brass as WordPress use only this app for all their publishing needs for the next month. I’m certain we’d see some improvements. Until then I’ll just fumble through this as best I can going back and forth between app and desktop because, frankly, the website isn’t exactly mobile friendly. But then, neither is the mobile app.

> it almost never recognizes posts started, scheduled, or even published from the desktop
This should not be happening. It sounds like you might have setup the Jetpack at some point in the past and now it's not syncing correctly in the app either because of a change to the plugin (was it removed?) or it might be another plugin conflict or server-side issue. We'd love to get more detail about your specific case to see if there's anything we can do to help. Please consider contacting support using the form on the Profile > Help & Support page in the app to continue the discussion.
