2.6.2 Local Draft only status option
iPhone 4 - 4.1, WP app v2.6.2, self hosted blog running 3.01
Not sure which caused this (new category, adding photo, or too many blogs) but the only option I have under status is Local Draft. These are the steps that led to it:
1.) Setup blog in app
2.) Clicked to write new post
3.) Clicked into categories and created new category
4.) wrote post, saved as Local Draft (default, didn't change it)
5.) went back into post, and large size image
6.) image uploaded
7.) clicked save
8.) went back into post, selected status and only Local Draft was available
I checked the other posts in the blog and the have no status listed. Also I went into my other self hosted blog and now this draft shows under that blog, it does not show up in my wordpress.com blogs. In addition to that another post that I did earlier in the day on one of my wordpress.com now shows up as a published post and as a local draft.
Last night I added another wordpress.com blog via the .org wizard and was able to successfully post to that blog. I deleted that blog last night and then added the self hosted blog this morning and that is when I had all the trouble. I have tried force closing the app and there is no change. My net step is to delete the app and reinstall to see if the stability returns.
This is interesting. Can you let me know if removing and reinstalling changes it? I'm going to try and reproduce the issue.
Yes, these issues did go away once I uninstalled then reinstalled the app. I did not add back all of my blogs but I did add back 2 of my WordPress.com blogs and the self hosted blog that I had the status issue with.
I redid the post with the self hosted blog that I had the issue with yesterday and was able to successfully post with an image. I did not try to recreate a category. Categories are not working with self hosted blogs anyway (maybe that is what caused this issue).
On a separate note, I did email you guys about testing this beta and you guys replied back asking for my phone's I'D. I didn't get a chance to respond to your email before you submitted your request and now I cannot find the email. I would be interested in testing the next beta and future ones if you guys need help, I just need to know where to send my phone's ID. My email address is dsmasters [(at)] gmail.com if you want to resend the email.
Another mystery to add...
So the new post that I did on my self host blog earlier today posted fine as I mentioned. What has happened since then is that the same post shows up as published and as a local draft in the lists of posts for that self hosted blog.
On top of that the same post shows up as a published post in one (not both) of my wordpress.com blogs. I check the blog directly and the post was indeed published to the wordpress.com blog as well. Weird.
I'm not sure what is going on but hopefully this info helps you to narrow it down.
EDIT: As I went to correct this I noticed that it is the title of the post that has transferred over from the self hosted to the WordPress.com site - not the entire post.
To clarify - I wrote 2 posts today - 1 on the self hosted and 1 on the WordPress.com blog. The title from today's post on the self hosted overwrote the post title on the WordPress.com post.
Again, hope this helps.
One additional note on the post title issue. I attempted to correct the title this morning and it would not change in the wp app. I then checked the site and it was changed there.
From there I uninstalled the app, restarted my phone, and reinstalled the app. I added the wordpress.com blog that had offending title in it and it is now correct.
I am going to hold off on adding my self hosted blog back into to app and see if things are more stable just posting to my wordpress.com sites.
