Stats Button Not Working

Due to recent changes WordPress have made on, the Statistics button in our menu bar is currently redirecting to the WordPress homepage – which for most people will appear as the ‘Reader’ page.

We have made WordPress aware of the breaking change they have made, and have resolved this for the next version of BlogPad Pro, but in the meantime we can offer an alternative solution…

How do I view my stats?

You can still view your stats by going to your web dashboard. To access your web dashboard tap on the blue ‘Manage Blogs’ button and then the blue button to the right of your blog. From ‘Blog Options’ select ‘Go To Web Dashboard’.


You can see a snapshot of your stats from your Web Dashboard homepage, or tap on ‘Site Stats’ in the left menu to see your full Stats page.


When with the update be ready?

We’re currently working on a major new update to BlogPad Pro which includes lots of new and exciting features. Because we’re in the middle of making such big improvements we can’t just do a quick release to solve this problem, but rest assured that we are working like crazy to get it available as soon as possible!

You will be notified via the app as soon as the update is ready to download.

HTML Showing in Post Content on Self-Hosted WordPress Blog

If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog and html is showing up incorrectly when you publish your blog (the content all looks like raw HTML) it is usually because your webhost has an old version of the libxml2 library installed.

How to solve this issue:

  1. The best solution is to get your web host to sort this out for you. If they need some guidance on doing this then you can point them in the direction of this support thread.
  2. If your host won’t do this upgrade for you then you can install this plugin which has been created to fix the problem. The LibXML2 Fix plugin*

Bedford, UK – November 28th 2012. Available today , the app BlogPad Pro is a beautiful and intuitive blogging app which gives you everything you need to run your WordPress blogs from your iPad:

As a team of avid WordPress bloggers, we felt there was a gap in the market for a professional (and yet easy to use) blogging app for the iPad. Our aim was to create a stable and intuitive app which gives you everything you need to run multiple large (or small!) WordPress blogs on your iPad.

We also wanted to make it easy to blog when you’re offline – like on a plane journey – or when you can’t get connected. So we’ve made a simple 1-click syncing system for updating your blog when you get back online.
We wanted our app to look great, be simple to use and packed with great features so you never need to leave your iPad. There’s nothing more annoying than having to fire up your laptop because an app just doesn’t offer you everything you need!

Features include:

  • Supports and self-hosted WordPress blogs
  • Manage multiple WordPress blogs all in one app, even with different user accounts
  • Offline or airplane mode – save content locally if you don’t have an internet connection to stop you losing work
  • One-click sync to upload all your changes when you go back online
  • WYSIWYG editing: style your posts with a touch of a button. No coding required!
  • AutoSaving of Posts and Pages – never lose your work because of unforeseen issues
  • Conflict Management – never unwillingly overwrite your work (or that of others) when working on a multi-user blog or when changes are made from different devices
  • Write and edit raw html – although with our great WYSIWYG editor you may never want to!
  • Easily find that post or media item you’re looking for with our search and filtering options
  • Check, manage and reply to blog comments on the go
  • Easily add images from your iPad, a url or your WordPress media library

BlogPad Pro is now available for £2.99 in the UK and is priced accordingly in other regions. The app is available worldwide in the Apple AppStore.

BlogPad Pro app for iPad was developed by Macroweb Ltd , a web and software development company incorporated in 2004.
