If you’re used to using Facebook to share photo’s from your phone, you will no doubt have trying to do something similar on this blog very painful. However, there is a way to make this a lot easier, which I’ll describe below.
WordPress have released an Android and IOS app that integrates with wordpress blogs, and this works well with our SAGO blog.
Once the app is installed, you need to configure the SAGO blog. This is pretty simple, click the “Add Blog” button:
and enter the url “www.sagoblogs.co.za” and your user id and password:
IMPORTANT: make sure the “Upload and link to full image” checkbox is checked.
There is not much more to it. You can then either share photo’s from your photo gallery by sharing the photo to WordPress, or directly from the WordPress application. Either way you will come to the same screen in the WordPress application. If you want to blog multiple photo’s, you will find doing it from the WordPress application much easier, so I’ll describe that process. (If you just want to share a single photo, then I recommend just sharing that photo directly from your photo gallery).
First, you’ll need to create a new post, which you can access by clicking the Posts menu item
This will bring up all the existing posts, and you can click on the “+” on the top right to create a new post
Once you are in the create post activity, it is very easy to add text and photo’s. It is similar to creating a new post through the website, and you have options to find photo’s or other media on your phone, as well as to tag the post with the usual tags.
