Call for Testing: WordPress for iOS 7.5

The WordPress for iOS 7.5 beta will be available for testing on TestFlight soon. Not part of the beta program yet? Please sign up for our TestFlight program to request to join as a beta tester.

What to Test

1. Aztec Native Editor

You may have heard about the new editor that’s included (but hidden) in the WordPress app. Aztec has reached beta status and you’re being invited to test it out!

First step: Read about Aztec here. There are instructions on how to enable it.

Second step: Look at the release notes for Aztec to find out what works, doesn’t work. It’s a beta so there’s still work left to be done.

Third step: If you test with updating an existing post, you may wish to use a test site. While we’ve been working super hard to make a solid experience you could potentially lose formatting.

We’re keeping the testing scenarios pretty loose at this point:

  • Compose a new post.
  • Update an existing post.
  • Add images (video support coming).
  • Try formatting things and verify formatting isn’t lost after posting.

Feedback

Something not work right? Did the app crash? Please tell us if something that seems like it should work didn’t.

2. Post Slug editing

On a post you can now edit the post slug (the unique part of a post URL).

Testing steps:

  1. Create a new post.
  2. Tap the ellipsis button and then Options. Tap Slug near the bottom of the list.
  3. Edit the post slug and provide something different than the default. (currently the default is blank – we’re going to supply the standard text before 7.5 ships)
  4. Publish the post and verify the slug is what you provided.
  5. Also try editing the slug on an existing post (using a test post is suggested).

Feedback

Try and break this – leave it blank, put weird stuff in there, etc. Let us know what happens!
