MINI WORKSHOP | Try the new Wordpress mobile editor Wordpress.com Beta Editor: apps.wordpress.com/mobile
It’s important to keep your Wordpress blog or website up to date. Thanks to the app’s powerful new beta editor, it’s never been easier to edit posts on your phone or tablet, so you can update your site from anywhere | 10 mins |
1 Open the Wordpress app and when prompted to try the new beta Wordpress Editor, tap Try It. If you’ve already selected Not Now, tap the account button, then App Settings. From this list, tap ‘Set editor type’ 1 and choose Beta, then tap the Wordpress button and select Blog Posts.
2 You can create a new post or tap Edit next to an existing post to open the beta editor. Type some text and a new Undo button 1 appears that lets you undo your changes one step at a time. Tap it to activate the Redo button. 2 Try pasting a large chunk of text into the new editor – you should notice it’s processed much faster than in the previous version.
3 Scrolling up and down through the text is also much quicker and smoother, and the spellcheck should be more reliable. You can now enter text using your keyboard’s dictation function, too. 1 If you notice a bug when using the new editor, tap Beta, 2 then press the Bug icon to report it to Wordpress.
