Create a post

You can make a  post by selecting the icon in the middle of the bottom navigation bar. By default, this will create a post on the last selected site. However, you can change on which site it will be published by selecting it from the drop down on the top navigation bar. You can also create a post by selecting Blog Posts from your site’s iOS Dashboard, and then press the + icon in the upper right corner. You can edit any post by selecting it from the Posts screen.

Styling posts

While writing a post, you can add rich text inline using the buttons just above the keyboard. The default styles include bold, italics, strikethrough, hyperlink, unordered and ordered list, and blockquote. You can also toggle to the raw HTML if you’d like to add more styles in the code.

More post options

You can access additional post options, such as Save Draft, Categories, Featured Image, and more by selecting options at the top of the Post screen. The options button looks like a little cog.

Create a page

You can create a page by selecting Pages from your site’s iOS Dashboard, and then the + icon in the upper right corner. You can edit any page by select it. Same with posts, you can style text in pages using the buttons just above the keyboard.

Adding images

To add an image, tap the image icon just above the keyboard. If asked to allow the app to access your photos, tap OK. Please note that you can only add images via the app, not other media such as videos. Once an image has fully uploaded, tap the image to bring up the edit overlay. Tap the image again to bring up the image details. You can edit the image title, caption, alt text, alignment, link to, or size.
