WordPress app beta

I like the WordPress app for the iPhone so much, I decided to sign up to beta test the upcoming versions.

This is beta version 1.4, and this is the first test post to a blog. Though this won’t be a daily entry, I will be creating a catergory for it.

A Movie Day

I saw two movies yesterday. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince & a wonderful film titled Moon.

Potter was much better than I expected! In fact I really enjoyed it. By now people should know that the movies don’t follow the books exactly but they do follow them faithfully. I’d recommend that you see it!

Moon, is a film that you won’t find often at the multiplex but is definitely worth tracking down. Watch the preview… You’ll see what I mean.

This post is also a test of publishing from the iPhone. It could make it easier to post on the run.

Typing test fun

I was testing out a piece of software called TextExpander, and reading the various links in the helpfiles, when I came across a typing test.

Now, I always knew I was a slow typist, but this slow?

Speedtest

And that’s after I took the test three times. You can try it yourself by clicking in the graphic or the Speedtest link.

Anyway, I’ll write more about TextExpander after I have played with it some more. So far it seems really cool, but mostly for those who often have to type the same phrases over and over. For example, by simply typing a series of letters (which you define), the program will replace them with whatever you have assigned to that combination, whether it be a word, or a short story.

posting photos

Let’s see if uploading photos works. Here’s the code to display it:

banner

That doesn’t seem to work… hmmm. Okay, now I’m adding the code from Flickr:

PhoneStore

Okay,… I had to add the complete path in order for the image to show up. What I had was:

img src='/wp-content/banner.jpg' alt='banner'

But I needed this:

img src="http://planet48.net/starfire/wp-content/banner.jpg" alt='banner'

Also, the upload page does not seem to generate the thumbnail it says it will.
I’ve now changed the settings to use the full path. If it works, then there should be a favicon displayed

After reading stuff in the support forum, it appears that WP doesn’t generate the code for the thumbnail, just the code for the actual image. You have to put the thumbnail stuff in yourself, with a pointer to the larger image I guess.
