What to Test

  • Previewing a draft now autosaves local changes and shows the remote version of the post. To test, create a new post or open a saved draft, make changes to the post, and preview it without saving it first. The draft will be autosaved and display a preview of the post on your site. Note that this does not change the behavior for viewing/previewing published posts. (PR #11376)
  • Adds support for importing data from Bear and Ulysses (or any apps using the TextBundle and TextPack formats). Note that this does not include support for tags or images. (PR #11375)
    • To test in Bear:
      • From the notes list: Swipe left → More… → Export Note… → Text Bundle
      • Open in WordPress
      • Ensure the contents of the post are correct, and not quoted
    • To test in Ulysses:
      • Tap share icon
      • Tap the top to choose export format, choose Text and TextPack
      • Tap the  button, tap “Send to” or “Open in Another App”
      • Open in WordPress
      • Ensure the contents of the post are correct, and not quoted
  • Support for lists in the block editor. To test, create a new post using the block editor (you can enable it under Me > App Settings); add a list block to your post; try adding and changing the list content (add items, change the list type, split the list block, etc.). Confirm that your list appears correctly in the post on your site. (PR #11409)
  • Several UI details were polished in the Site Creation flow. This includes support for creating a blog with a .blog subdomain directly in the app. (PR #11413)
