WordPress App

wp logo blueWordPress has a powerful iPhone and iPad application that allows you to moderate comments, edit posts and create new posts from on the go.

Here’s how to use the WordPress app.

Step 1 – Sign In to Your WordPress Account

Choose whether you want to edit a blog hosted on WordPress, start a new blog or edit a self-hosted WordPress blog.

For this tutorial, we’ll assume that you’re editing a self hosted blog.


Once you make your selection, you’ll be prompted for your login information.


Step 2 – Select Which Blog to Edit

The WordPress application can store a number of logins for different blogs. Choose which blog you want to edit.


 

Step 3: Moderate Comments

The first screen you’ll see upon logging in is the comments moderation screen.


Select the comment you want to edit.


Clicking the trash can in the lower left will delete the comment. Clicking the arrow on the right will let you reply to the comment.

Clicking on the center button will bring up additional options.


 

Step 4: Create or Edit a Post

To create or edit a post, first select “Posts” along the bottom navigation.

To edit a post, click on one of the posts you want to edit.


 

You’ll be taken to the edit screen for that post.


 

If you want to create a new post, just click the pencil button in the upper right corner.


 

You’ll be taken to the new post screen.


 

Tap on any area to edit. You can edit the title, the tags, the category and the body text from this screen.

To change the status of the post, click on the mechanic-wheel button on the bottom.


 

This enables you to change the privacy settings and the publishing time of the post.

To preview how your post will look when published, click the eye button.


To add a video or an image to your post, click the film reel or the picture frame in the lower right.


If you want to save the draft without publishing, just click cancel in the upper left and click “Save Draft.”


Finally, when you’re ready to publish a post, click on “Publish” in the upper right corner.


That’s how to use the WordPress iPhone or iPad app to moderate comments, edit an existing post or create a new one.
