We’re excited to announce that we’ve recently begun setting up mobile access for our blog clients. This means that blog posts can be published on the go from an iPhone via the WordPress mobile app. It’s simple to set up. You just need to download the WordPress app on your phone, have access to your domain name (www.yourwebsite.com), and your login credentials for that WordPress site. Old posts are accessible as well.
Why would you need to post with a smartphone?
For JSN client (and National Champion for Rowing), Katherine McFetridge, the road to the 2016 Olympics is long and eventful. With mobile blogging, she can post blog updates from the water during training and competitions.
Many bloggers struggle with the follow-through after capturing photos of events, mommy blog deals, or “ah ha” moment business tips while they’re not in front of a computer. Good intentions lead to a long list of blog “to dos” that quickly become out of date, overwhelming or simply forgotten.
iPhone App WordPress Features
The main toolbar features buttons such as edit (update), publish settings, preview, add attachment, insert video and insert photo. I’ve added three photos of the WordPress app to the post above, but I did log into the computer later on to make sure all of these were positioned correctly. If there’s one drawback I found, it has to do with photo formatting. Then again text wrapping has always been a little choppy with WordPress.
Built-in text formatting options include bold, italic, quote, strike through, hyperlink, bulleted lists and you can even add the “more” break for blogs that feature snippets in the blog feed.
Hint: to take a screenshot of your iPhone screen, hold down the circle home button and the power button on the upper right at the same time. Your screen should blink and your screenshot will be saved to your photos.
If you’re looking to have a blog created, check out our blog templates at www.wiseowlweb.com. You can even get started online, but a “real person” will reach out to you in order to make sure we create something you love.
I look forward to any questions and comments. Have a great day.
