The iPhone App for WordPress was recently updated to version 2.6 (see announcement). It has got quite a few interesting new features and was made compatible with WordPress 3.x. Strangely though, it had always worked on my previous installation, but connection broke after this update. What an irony!
If you recently updated the application and got this error (“Communication Error. Bad user name or password“) while attempting to connect to your blog site, here’s the simple solution that worked for me:
- Click the navigation button “Blogs“.
- Click the button “Edit”.
- Click the red delete button.
- Click the add (“+”) button and reenter your settings.
Simple eh? I haven’t had the opportunity to test out the new features (mostly because the iPhone keyboard is really bad for typing), but I would sure like to try them out! Meanwhile, we can expect more WordPress App users with the massive migration of Windows Live Spaces (by Microsoft) blogs over to WordPress.
