In this tutorial, you will learn how to manage your WordPress mobile app’s settings.
You should have already set up your WordPress App. If you haven’t set it up yet, see this tutorial.
Tap on your WordPress app icon to log into your account.
Settings for your WordPress App can be accessed by tapping on the Settings menu.
The Settings area is divided into the following sections:
This section displays a list of all WordPress sites and blogs you have added to your WordPress mobile app’s account.
Click on a site listing to edit its details…
This opens up the account details screen.
On this screen, you can edit the following settings:
Edit your site’s username and login password.
This section is optional. It allows you to enter other forms of authenticating a user’s login credentials.
This section allows you to specify media settings that will affect how images are added to your posts and uploaded to your WordPress site.
You can change the Default Image Width setting to another desired width (Note: You can also tap on an image in the post editor to set a custom image size).
Additionally, you can select checkboxes to include the following options in this section:
You can geotag your posts by ticking the Geotag Posts box checkbox in this section.
Geotagging your posts lets your readers know where you are posting from. It also allows you to assign a city or town to any post so readers can find posts relevant to certain places more easily.
For example, if you write about local events in your city, you can tag them so that others who live nearby can find out what’s going on.
If you post photographs of a town you have visited, you can tag them with the name of that town so that people searching for it will be able to more easily find your site.
If you no longer want to access a WordPress site from your mobile app’s account, you can delete its details by clicking on the Remove Blog button at the bottom of the screen.
As well as removing sites from your mobile WordPress account, you can also add new sites in the Blogs section.
The settings in this section affect how your mobile device is notified when new comments are posted on your site.
Enable or disable comment notifications for all sites in your mobile WordPress account.
Tap on Update interval to bring up the Update interval screen. Here you can select the interval you want your mobile app to check for any new comments posted on your WordPress site.
The Comment Notifications settings section also allows you to specify various options that will notify you when new comments have been posted on your WordPress site:
In this section, you can add a custom signature that will be added to all new posts published to your WordPress site from your mobile device.
To add a custom signature to new posts, tick the Add a signature to new posts checkbox and tap on the Post signature area.
This brings up the Post signature screen. Type in a custom signature to replace the default app’s signature and tap on OK to save.
Your custom signature will be added to all new posts published from your mobile device.
This section displays important information about your WordPress mobile application.
You can also read information about the application’s Open Source license.
