Sharing

  1. Sharing using iOS's share functionality from other apps to the Wordpress iOS App.

    Does anyone know why you must install Jetpack to be able to share to the WP ap -- even for a self-hosted site?

    Why dos the share functionality only let you set status as "published"? (no draft status available in the Share UI.)

    Is Jetpack okay for privacy?

  2. Hi there!

    The sharing functionality of the app requires specific communication with your site that is only available when Jetpack is connected to a WordPress.com account at the moment. We have it on our radar to add this for self-hosted sites, but at this time it's still something being worked on.

    There should be no concern for privacy with the Jetpack plugin. It's built and supported by Automattic, the same company that has built the WordPress software and the mobile apps. You can read more about the privacy policy here if you are concerned: https://jetpack.com/support/privacy/.

    We're working on improving the Share UI and adding the draft option is something we're looking into also. Hopefully, we can build on this in the future.

    Let me know if you have any questions about this!
