Call for testing: WordPress for Android 11.7

WordPress for Android version 11.7-rc-1 is available for testing on the Beta channel.

What to Test:

What’s New:

  • Blog Posts: Added a dialog to help you fix a post with different web and local changes.
  • Site Pages: Refreshed page list layout that includes a timestamp and a featured image thumbnail.

What’s Fixed:

  • We have made lots of small improvements to the stats section including fixing a crash and some visual tweaks.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause some old saved posts to disappear.
  • Fixed a crash that could happen when opening the Media section in the app.
  • There were a lot of other improvements made in this release that aren’t being called out in this post. For the main WordPress Android application you can view the entire list here.

Testing Notes

You can use these guidelines for testing the new blog posts dialog when there are different web and local changes to a post:

Test 1: Confirm the post shows a conflict when there are different local and remote changes

  1. Create and save a draft while online in the app. (This also syncs the draft remotely.)
  2. Go offline.
  3. Make changes to the post and go back. This will save the changes as local draft.
  4. Go to the web and make changes to the post.
  5. Publish the post.
  6. Back in the app, you should be on the posts list. Turn airplane mode off.
  7. Pull to refresh.
  8. You should see now the post has a “Conflicted” state.

Test 2: Keep the local changes

  1. Follow steps 1 to 8 above to create a conflict.
  2. Try to resolve the conflict so that the changing you made in the app are preserved.

Test 3: Keep the remote changes

  1. Follow steps 1 to 8 above to create a conflict.
  2. Try to resolve the conflict so that the changing you made on the web are preserved.

Feedback

  • Did the three tests have the expected results?
  • Could you tell what was wrong (did the “Conflicted” status make sense) when viewing the post in the posts list?
  • Was the process to resolve the conflict (either to keep your local changes or your remote changes) intuitive?

Bugs & Feedback

Did you find a bug or come up with a feature request while testing? You can discuss it here, ping one of us in the #mobile WordPress.org Slack room or head straight to the Android GitHub repository and open a new issue.
