Hi all,

Some users have reported issues on self hosted WordPress sites.  This issue affects older versions of WordPress (< 2.7).

A new app version will be available as soon as possible to address this issue.

In the meantime we have pushed out the latest beta,, which includes more user-friendly error messages to help troubleshoot. To download the new beta, just point your browser to and overwrite the current installed app.

    Still no luck connecting to my site with the latest update… I have tried on two different BlackBerry models. I have Self-Hosted WP 2.8… trying on Bold 9000 running OS 5.0 and Storm running OS The error I keep getting is “An Error OccuredL T()”

    Can anyone help?

    I am running WP 2.8 on my self-hosted site and I own a BB 8900 and I’m still having a problem adding a blog “Bad URL, username or password”. Could it be because my blog is in a sub-directory?

    I use BB8900 & BB8800. I tried to use WP beta and found that: WP beta does not support Unicode UTF-8. My blog using Vietnamese and Unicode UTF-8 (Pre-compound).

    With BB8800, as usual we can read and type by UTF-8 Composite. And with BB8900, we could use UTF-8 pre-compound, also UTF-8 composite.

    But this app not.

      WordPress for Blackberry now handle “Precompound Unicode”.
      We have inserted also support for “Composite Unicode” but is only a beta.

    The app does not work properly on the Storm. The screen orientation is fixed, and scrolling does not work properly too. Gave up while trying add my blog.

      elekelektronaut – can you please open up a ticket or post in the forums with details — thanks.

    2. chrisbaker3

      Interesting, I don’t have either of those problems using the WP app on my Storm.

      did you set app with Compatibility mode OFF?
      (Go to option-> advance options-> application -> wordpress)
