Doing it remotely

Doing it remotely

It’s been a while since I last blogged seriously and this time round I’m exploring new ways of both setting up WordPress and writing blog posts. For example, can I use an IPad Pro to setup a website and manage the back end of WordPress? (Short answer, not quite) and are there apps available that allow remote blogging? The answer to the second question is maybe. There are several apps that connect to WordPress blogs but more than a few seem to be old and not updated for several years. I tried BlogPad Pro, which looked promising and includes features such as autosave. I wrote several draft entries but they were missing when I returned to my computer. I suspect one of the reasons for poor connection and missing posts is that my web host employs security on my account preventing third party software from writing to the server. Fair enough. There may be a workaround but to be honest I just want something quick and dirty that works. So now I’m trying the official WordPress app, which seems solid but basic. Did it save my post though?  

Edit:  Well yes and no.  The basic blog post was saved but because I’m using Elementor it wasn’t formatted correctly.  More research needed.
