Beta Available Now

Posted on 28 Jul 09 by Raanan Bar-Cohen

Hi everyone ! Things are progressing nicely with this beta test thanks to everyone who has posted on the forums and on trac. We really appreciate all the feedback and time spent by all of you beta testers.

Today we have a new beta, version for you to download. Changes include:

We are also aware that some of you prefer to use this app connecting with BIS. We are actively working on a solution for this with RIM, but currently don’t have an ETA for that.

And as always, please do no post comments to this post involving support or troubleshooting. If you are having issues, please first review the FAQ, and if you are still stuck, then head over to the forums and post as many details as possible so we can help track down the issue.

    Hey there,

    Absolutely awesome job on this application. One thing though, I grabbed the source from the trunk in SVN but the WordPressResource class seems to be missing.


    1. Danilo

      The resource header file is located under trunk at following url /trunk/src/com/wordpress/bb/WordPress.rrh

      When the BlackBerry Integrated Development Environment builds a project, it creates a resource interface with Resource appended to the .rrh file name.
      So the file will be created during build by IDE.

    Awesome thanks! I saw the resource files but have not done an initial build. Will do so.

    I have just download the application to my blackberry and am trying to add my blog. It isn’t working and I don’t know what I am doing wrong. It is asking for my blogs url. To the best of my knowledge this is however when I try and use this it says “we could not find the xmlrpc endpoint of your blog, please insert the complete url below”

    Anyone know what I am doing wrong?

    Ok, I’m missing something. I’d LOVE to use the BB download, and I follow the instructions I get. I’m hitting the wall at the moment.

    I download a 1.25kb JAD file and then that’s that. My BB desktop software doesn’t recognize it as an acceptable file type to load so I’m a little frustrated. I’m sure the instructions are right in front of me, but I’m not finding them.

    Can anybody help me out so I can get this up and running on my Storm?

    1. Danilo

      did you try to point your BlackBerry browser to ?

      At this moment there is no package available for desktop installation.

  14. aestar101

    there should be a Word press app for the EnV touch

    I couldn’t get it to work on my BlackBerry Storm. Just me?

    1. Raanan Bar-Cohen

      @Stephanie can you post a few details in the forums so we can take a look — thanks.

      1. Stephanie Franz

        The BB Storm has a screen which adjusts its orientation when you turn it upside down, didn’t work for the application, it was just stuck one way. Highlighting the buttons was difficult, because they kept going “unmarked” before being able to click them via the touchscreen (and there is no other way of entering). On one screen I wasn’t able to get into the next field for entering data because the touchscreen wasn’t responding. Also the BB seemed to be malfunctioning overall, freezing or being very slow to respond. This has stopped since uninstalling the application and rebooting the BB. Sorry about the lack of proper technical terms, but this is roughly what happened. Hope it helps. Many thanks, Stephanie

          @Stephanie Franz

          You need to run the app with Compatibility mode OFF. Go to option-> Advanced options-> Application -> WordPress to change this setting.

          If your issue still there, you can look at the FAQ

    Hi guys! Have to comment… The app does not work on BB pearl 8100? Me and a couple of friends have problems trying to start the app, we have the same BB. We can download it but gives us an error when started.

    Regards from Argentina.

    1. Raanan Bar-Cohen

      @Andres — it may because of lack of BIS support which the latest release now has. Try downloading the latest version and let us know if that works.

    I have updated it to: but am still getting the same error message: “we could not find the xmlrpc endpoint of your blog, please insert the complete url below”

    Am I doing something wrong or is it not working?

    1. Danilo

      I’ve tested your blog xmlrpc endpoint ( and there is no errors. (make sure you have inserted the URL without WWW).

      If this not solve, probably you have communication issues on device. Make sure you have selected right connection options into “setup” screen.
      Moreover, take a look to WordPress for Blackberry Bug Reporting Best Practices page:

  20. volume4

    @fandangogroovers, when you log into the admin area of you blog, go to setting, then Writing. Under remote publishing you will find XML-RPC. Make sure this box is ticked, save your setting and give it another try.

  21. fandangogroovers

    That appears to have done it thanks. I had to change the connection options.
