    Did you have a timeframe for Custom Post Types integration?

    1. Danilo

      @Dan — Unfortunately the support for custom post types is not in our working list. So, custom post types will not be available in the near future.
      For what it’s worth, WordPress for BlackBerry has the ability to allow post authors to assign custom fields to a post. So, where applicable, you can use custom fields to start more complex actions.

    I’m running it on the 9700(OS5). My comments notification doesnt seems to be working. Any idea why?

    Side question: Is there a proper place to ask support questions like this or is this blog it?

    1. Danilo

      @Ridz — did you enabled comments notification (within the app click on the BB menu -> Notification)?
      if this doesn’t help can you post to the forums so we can take a look?
