If you have downloaded the latest version of BlogPad Pro you may find that you can no longer upload photos. We’re working to resolve this issue as soon as possible, but in the meantime this should fix the problem for you:
1) Go to “Manage Blogs” (ie tapping on the “B” button)
2) Tap on the right-facing blue arrow for the blog in question to display the “Blog Options” menu
3) From the “Blog Options” menu, tap on “Update Settings From Live”
Once this is done, tap on the “Edit Blog Settings” option from the “Blog Options” menu. At the bottom of the “Edit Local Blog Settings” page, you will find “User Roles”. In order to have access to all the image options, you will need to belong to any of the following Roles:
If this doesn’t work for you please get in touch with us via BlogPad Pro by going to Help > Ask A Question.
We have discovered that the bbPress forum plugin is creating issues for some self-hosted WordPress blog users with the latest version of BlogPad Pro (version 1.3).
The plugin uses some custom user roles which are unrecognised by BlogPad Pro and means that when you add your blog you have really limited user privileges. You won’t be able to add and upload images, publish posts etc.
Now that we’ve become aware of this issue our developer is working on a fix, and this should be ready to resubmit to the App Store soon.
Please bear with us, it takes a bit of time to get a new version of BlogPad Pro ready for release as we like to do thorough user testing and we also have no control over how long it takes Apple to approve the new version of the app (although generally that takes about a week if it goes smoothly and the queue of apps waiting isn’t too long).
One thing you can try in the meantime is to disable the bbPress plugin. I know this may not be something you want to do, and if the plugin is bundled in with a theme (like for example the Enfold theme) this may not fix the problem unless you temporarily change your theme too.
Thanks for your patience and your feedback which has helped us to get to the bottom of this issue, and you’ll be notified as soon as the bug fix is ready to download! It’s tough to build an app which works with thousands of custom plugins and themes as it’s impossible for us to have every plugin installed ourselves, but with your feedback we can fix most things 🙂
Have you found that your iPad or iPhone has recently started auto-correcting perfectly normal words to really strange ones?
This can happen in any IOS app which uses Apple’s built-in auto-correction, auto-complete and spell-checking mechanisms. This includes BlogPad Pro, although we’re currently looking into other options to get around this issue.
But why does this happen?
IOS uses a unique dictionary which ‘learns’ new words depending on the words you use. If you reject an auto-corrected word twice, the dictionary assumes the new word is correct and adds it to the dictionary.
This can result in strange phrases and misspelled words replacing proper words.
So what can I do to fix the problem?
One way of fixing this is by disabling these features. To do this go into your iPad or iPhone settings:
Settings > General > Keyboard
Once you’re in keyboard settings here are three options you can disable:
Another option is to reset your keyboard to factory settings.
To do this go to your iPad or iPhone settings:
Settings > General > Reset > Reset Keyboard Dictionary.
Please bear in mind that this sets your keyboard to default settings and will delete all custom words.
