    WordPress for BlackBerry › WordPress for BlackBerry Public Beta

    Finally here for all the bloggers. Comments Good and Bad. Seems pretty decent. So far. It is still beta.

    Update: It works extremely well. It's not the fastest thing in the world and if your blog title has any ' & or @ in it it shows up as code. Still testing.

    Been trying it out on my Bold. Having trouble getting it to actually publish a post. I typed up a post and it's nice that it recognizes when you are trying to insert a hyperlink. But for me it sits there just trying to send the post. After trying twice with it sitting there for 20 minutes or so I canceled it both times.

    Anybody else experiencing what I am?

    I had that as well. When I did my first one it seemed to struggle. i let it go and it seemed to work. Remember its still in beta im sure once they realize the traffic it is consuming they will dedicate more to it. There is a support forum on the bb wp site that has a bug reporting area. might wanna try there

    I cannot login at all. I checked everything and it is all correct. All permissions are set to allow.

    Any ideas?

    Update: I fixed the problem. User error

    Check everything well, I had a simple bitty typo and it kept giving me that problem.

    Also make sure that the XML-RP is enabled

    No, still running 2.7. Might pull the trigger this week end. Going from 2.5 to 2.7 didn't go too smoothly though, so I'm not in a hurry.

    Just adding, I will probably wait a while longer till 2.8.# is out... It should be soon. Last I checked it was in beta 2

    I'm on 2.8 on all my sites. Works great. It's a little snappier than previous versions.

    Thankfully I already had XML-RP enabled due to setting up Windows Live Writer on my PC a few days ago. Had I not already had that done I would've been lost as **** since I'm so new to WP. Haven't tested the app yet but everything leading up to writing a post looks pretty good/easy to use. I don't see myself using this often (don't get too many visitors, blog is new, etc.) but I'm definitely going to keep it "just in case."

    ****, said that about twitter and now I'm nearing (or maybe even past?) 3k posts....LOL

    I'm test driving this app as well as Wicked from ScreamingToaster. I much prefer the UI of Wicked, whereas this WordPress app has a lot more functionality.

    I haven't played much with the xml/xhtml tag completion yet... however one feature I would REALLY like to see incorporated is the ability to assign specific image resizing (you can shrink the image, but I'd like to be able to set exact dimensions). As well I'd like to see options to insert your images into specific points in the post, and options to select alignment, thumbnail etc... Sure you can do it all manually, but the point of remote publishing would be to take the heartache out of it.

    Have wordpress.com page so can't change the settings for XML-RP. Not letting me log in. Anyone have any ideas?

    Is your blog on a subdomain (i.e www.companyname.com/myblog)?

    If so then, like me, it's game over as this app won't work on subdomains.

    It should, you only have to enable the XML if you host your own blog

    EDIT: Did you try with no luck? I don't have it as a subdomain so I haven't tested it (I just saw it was self-hosted and not just a Wordpress blog on their site)

    The app is for WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress version 2.5.1 or newer
    For self-hosted WordPress sites, please make sure you have XML-RPC enabled. To confirm, it’s a simple check box in your dashboard under Settings -> Writing

    No it's a wordpress.com address. Will try enabling compatability mode and rebooting and see if that helps.
