There are many ways to post to WordPress, but I found you the perfect WordPress plugin for posting through your Blackberry. WordPress has a built in tool for posting to your WordPress account, but it is unsecure. I’ll tell you how to use it and then introduce a secure way to post to WordPress.
WordPress Post Via E-Mail Tool
This is a great tool except that if someone figures out your email, they can post to your WordPress site as well. If you choose to use it, you would need to follow these steps:
Now every time you send an email to this address, it will post directly to your WordPress site. Again, if someone gets this address, they can post to your WordPress account as well.
Post to WordPress Securely
There is a plugin that will allow you to post to WordPress securely. It’s called Postie. Postie will only except posts that come from specific email addresses. This makes it much more secure. Here is how you’d install Postie:
How to Set Up Postie
Setting Up Postie Message Defaults
By clicking on the Message tab, you can define the default:
Inserting Images with Postie
You can also define how images are handled. Click on the Image tab to define:
Inserting Video and Audio
You can also insert any video and audio, that is attached. I use the medium_widescreen option for displaying video. If you choose simple_link, only a link to the video would be displayed. These options are totally up to you.
You can also attach files such as:
If you click the Attachments tab, you can define what the icon’s will look like that link to these files.
Further Help with Postie
If you click the Help tab, you’ll find step by step directions on other ways to post to WordPress, with Postie.
Another Way to Post to WordPress
You can also automate your WordPress posting using a tool called WP-o-Matic. I wrote an article on it, Make Money Online : Automating WordPress Posting
Also you can copy articles from one site to yours using a tool called Press This. It can be found under tools, in your WordPress left side bar. Here is an article on Press This, Posting Articles with Press This.
That’s All Folks
