A New WordPress App Update, Designed for the iPad

Over the past few months we’ve been working to dramatically improve users’ experience on iPad — and we’re proud to share those with you now, in our WordPress app for iOS, available in the iTunes Store.


The apps were originally designed with only iPhones in mind, so we wanted to make better use of the space available on the iPad and especially iPad Pro, to maximize your productivity in the app. These changes shipped incrementally, with the very final ones being included in the 7.1 release that went out last week.

We’ve improved the My Sites management to make it easier to handle multiple sites on iPad. Now you can see the posts from that blog alongside the list of blogs, and site management is now all on one screen – no more back and forth!




Managing profiles follows the same pattern.


Notifications has been overhauled, too.


We’re really excited about these improvements and hope iPad users of WordPress will be, too! We look forward to continuing to improve your WordPress experience, no matter what device you use.

Get the app on iTunes.

Field Notes: CMS Africa Summit

Automatticians, the people who build, participate in events and projects around the world every day. Periodically, they report back on the exciting things they do in the community.

This year’s CMS Africa Summit was my third attendance at this amazing conference. My colleagues Marjorie, Sarah, Hannah, and Luminus joined me for the event and in doing so we sent Automatticians from three different continents.

Democratizing eCommerce

For several years now, Automattic has been the title sponsor for CMS Africa Summit. After conferences in Kenya (2015) and Uganda (2016), the 2017 edition took place in Abuja, Nigeria. The team behind the summit consists of industry leaders from all three of those countries. Together they also represent some of the world’s most popular open source content management systems (CMSs): Joomla, Drupal, and (of course) WordPress.

As one of the tech hubs in Sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria is leading tech innovation on the continent. The conference by consequence focused on the practical use of CMSs, more so than in previous years: how they can boost local businesses and grow the economy.

For that reason, the attendees were very interested in eCommerce as a way to take their startups online. We introduced them to WooCommerce as an open source tool for economic empowerment, and shared practical and localized guidelines. Many of the entrepreneurs we encountered expressed their love for open source software because it doesn’t require them to invest their precious startup budget in software.


The slides and summaries of our talks can be found on our respective websites. Here’s a selection of some of the other talks we loved. Prosper Otemuyiwa, our favorite keynote speaker, focused on how to build a product the open source way. Nigerian CMS organizer Adedayo Adeniyi talked about the need for online growth in Nigeria and putting checks and balances in place for high-quality local web development. Software developer Idris Abdul Azeez highlighted the importance of documenting not only software configuration but also its development process, since writing readable code is a necessary cornerstone for the open source community and facilitates members’ contributions.

We were moved when lead organizer Oduor Jagero shared his excitement that Automattic had sent a team of staff to attend, present workshops, and connect in person with the Nigerian tech and open source community. Beyond the financial support, taking the time to teach and to listen to the local stories is especially appreciated. If you’re ready to listen too, here’s a great place to start: Jagero asked his friends on Facebook to share their blog posts about love. Three of the best stories will be awarded a basket of WordPress goodies. Here are the best ones he selected: Lovine Mboya, Akello, and Nepenthe.

CMS Africa Summit 2017 was amazing, just as in previous years. As outsiders, the local community welcomed us with open arms. The eagerness to learn, grow, and be successful was inspiring. On to the next one!

Below are some pictures taken by organizer David Aswani.

De gèneres i discriminacions

Malgrat que hagen discorregut uns quants dies de la celebració de la dona treballadora, no vull deixar passar córrer un capteniment que tinc al tocat de la discriminació de les dones (o globalment de gènere) en àmbits que haurien de ser igualitaris. De retruc, voldria fer una reflexió al voltant de ço que és masculí i femení en u d'aquests àmbits, concretament en la interpretació actoral.

En el cas primer hi posaré dos exemples que hom pot trobar en dues cultures separadíssimes però socialment lligades. En el cas nostrat hi ha el misteri d'Elx i en el forà el teatre kabuki japonés. En tots dos els actors són hòmens siguen els papers masculins i femenins. No sé fins a quin punt, a hores d'ara, en l'època en què som, hom pot encara refusar que les dones puguen aparéixer per raons de tradició i història. Qui pretenga mantenir aquesta discriminació hauria de defensar també que les dones no puguen pilotar avions, operar pacients o defensar persones en un juí. El purisme ací d'unes essències teatrals és absurd si hom té en compte per què justament aquesta exclusió femenina. A la fi, considere també irrespectuós perpetuar aquesta actitud i no denunciar-ho, boicotar-ho o no manifestar-se'n.

Altrament, el segon punt de què vull parlar fa referència a dos fets teatrals semblants: a Alcoi, les xiquetes voldrien ser santjordiets, però no les deixen perquè els àngels (malgrat no tenir sexe) són mascles i, doncs, és il·lògic que elles puguen representar-lo. Ara, la mare de Déu en el misteri d'Elx ben bé que és una dona (indiscutible el gènere femení) i és representada per un xiquet. Al tall d'açò i de retruc, voldria fer un esment de l'actriu Blanca Portillo que va representar fa temps el paper de l'inquisidor Torquemada (no sense polèmica). Amb la qual cosa jo em demane quant de cabdal és el gènere en una representació de teatre, quan en essència, allò que mana és la capacitat de transmetre. ¿Pot resultar, doncs, accessori quin gènere actua si, comptat i debatut, la tècnica vocal, el maquillatge i el vestuari poden solucionar-ho?

Al remat, crec que en els anys en què som i els avenços aconseguits, no hauria de resultar estrany ni caldria enfurismar-se quan les dones (i els hòmens en suport d'elles) reivindicaren ser actrius de kabuki i del misteri d'Elx. Enrocar-s'hi davant aquesta evidència és continuar fent el joc al masclisme atàvic. Pel que fa al segon, ¿no podria ser pres en consideració aquest punt de vista?

New in Reader: Combined Cards

If you’ve ever followed a frequently updating site in Reader, you may have noticed a problem. When one of your followed sites goes on a posting streak, it can easily overwhelm your stream, causing you to miss posts from less frequent sites.

Today we launched a new feature to alleviate this problem: Combined Cards. Now, when a site you follow gets prolific, we’ll combine those posts into a single card — provided the posts are all from the same day and uninterrupted by posts from other sites.

Here’s a recent example from Time Magazine. (Did you know you can follow Time in Reader? You can!) Before on the left, after on the right.


For Writers: If you post once a day, your posts will never be combined in Reader. If you post more than once a day, it’s possible your posts will be combined for some readers and not others — it depends on how many other sites they follow and when they post. Posts will only be combined if they’re uninterrupted by other posts.

For Readers: Your Followed Sites stream still shows all the posts from the sites you follow, in exactly the same order. The only thing that’s changed is that if a site posts a string of new posts, we’ll combine them into one card so they take up less vertical space.

We hope this change makes Reader more pleasant to use, and helps you feel comfortable following more frequently updating sites. If you’d like some suggestions, here are some great high frequency sites we recommend: Fortune, People, Laughing SquidUproxxThe Sports DailyHeavy, TechCrunchBlack America Web, and BGR. Remember to click the “Follow” link at the top of the page to add it to your Reader. members can visit Reader in the usual spot. Not a member yet? Join us. And thanks, as always, for being part of the community.

De la banalització de les paraules connotades

Hi han dies en què alguns alumnes tenen un comportament negatiu de manera reiterada i els crides l'atenció prou pudent i et diuen perdó: davant aquesta situació de petició de perdó (un poc per compromís, molt per inèrcia) jo els dic que ves per on perdó és una de les paraules més prostituïdes del nostre (qualsevol) idioma. Hom demana perdó sense adonar-se de ço que significa i implica el mot.

Ve al tomb aquesta anècdota per a compartir el neguit que tinc de la manera com hom desvirtua, banalitza, prostitueix al capdavall aquelles paraules que caldria fer servir amb compte, respecte i tacte. Un primer cas, molt colpidor, va ser quan al tocat dels jocs olímpics de Pequín del 2008, u dels redactors del Teletxto de la Televisión Española va escriure una notícia de la derrota de la selecció espanyola femenina de bàsquet contra la russa. A més a més de la infàmia de la redacció de la notícia, allò que em va enquetar va ser que deia que les russes van genocidar les espanyoles.

En llegir aquella notícia em vaig endenyar moltíssim, perquè no hom pot acceptar de cap de les maneres que es faça servir aquesta mena de llenguatge ni encara que siga per a donar més vivesa al llenguatge periodístic esportiu. No de totes, totes. De fet, faig servir aquest text per als alumnes del batxillerat perquè entenguen que açò no s'hi val a l'hora d'escriure.

Voldria també aprofitar aquest text per a comentar un altre fet d'aquesta banalització que d'ençà del tocat efervescent independentista català (o molt més d'abans) prolifera als mitjans de comunicació tradicionals (premsa, ràdio...) i moderns (twitter, facebook...). Em dol molt que amb açò de la independència, els unionistes facen referència a mots com holocaust, gasificar, nazis, feixisme, terrorisme, ETA, etc. Tot de manera angoixantment despreocupada i inconscient. 

Crec que fer servir aquest vocabulari per a magnificar un procés que els unionistes consideren traumàtic no mereix ultratjar la memòria, per exemple, d'una gent que va haver de sofrir una de les atrocitats més devastadores de la història actual. Seria convenient que moderaren el llenguatge i que algun comité d'aquells deontològics els ho fera saber. Per vergonya, per dignitat.

D'un premi poètic una altra volta

M'han enviat per correu electrònic les bases literàries al premi de Sagunt, un concurs a què m'he presentat unes quantes voltes. La novetat d'enguany és que a la fi han abandonat la convocatòria d'enviament d'exemplars impresos i ara demanen que hi envien un CD, DVD o bastó USB.

Primer de tot, l'enhorabona per evitar als concurrents gastar-se tants diners en fotocòpies (més pe als de narrativa que de poesia, cal dir!) i en despesa postal: ara un CD de no res serà més barat d'enviar (bé: tampoc és gaire estalvi, però ben bé que uns quants euros ja no es llançaran de bades, llevat del guanyador!).

Segon de tot: si volien evitar despesa ecològica en paper, ara però creem un altre tipus de residus: què fem ara amb els suports de qui no han guanyat? Doncs una de les propostes de les bases és destruir-los. Anem a pams, d'una banda els CD són barats, imperceptibles, però els bastons.... Més encara, dels CD es llancen a perdre molts megues (si tenim en compte un poemari), però i els bastons, que ja són de mínim un giga? De l'altra banda, per què destruir un producte totalment útil? No se'n podria fer una donació a col·lectius que en necessiten, després de formatar-los? Altrament, per què s'hauria de fer això si és un objecte personal i que caldria ser retornat al propietari? No té tota la planta de ser un abús i si no vols no t'hi presentes?

Continue pensant que les coses no es fan bé i que un bon encert hauria estat enviar les obres per correu electrònic, tal com fan, per exemple, al premi de poesia d'Alcoi.

A Few Tiny Steps Towards an Improved Writing Space at

Today we’re proud to unveil some design changes to the editor. It has the same great features you’ve come to expect, but with a cleaner, more refined experience — and a few new improvements, like a distraction-free writing mode.


Welcome to our new distraction-free writing experience. We hope you enjoy it.

To give you a tour, I chatted with the two people who helped to create it. Joen Asmussen and Matías Ventura are two Europe-based computational designers at Automattic who have been designing different aspects of the experience over the past six years. It’s certainly come a long way from its very first prototype:


The editor as it looked with the launch of the redesign, late 2015.

… and we also know there’s still a long way to go!

JM: Much of what we know about design is grounded in experiences in the physical world, and you can learn a lot about a designer from the objects that they admire. I understand that your favorite designed object is a … door handle?

Joen: Hah, yes indeed! Or perhaps clarification is needed — one of my favorites. A guiding principle of mine is that the best design is invisible. It is functional to the point that you forget how it works: you just use it. The door handle is a design that has been honed for who knows how long — it’s easy to forget that it was once designed from scratch. And everyone knows how to use a door handle. That makes it a great design.

JM: What inspirations do you take from those objects to the work you bring to a digitally based product?

Matías: I think that same clarity of purpose and the ability to adapt to whatever complex ideas a person wants to express or achieve is something digital tools should seek to provide. The WordPress editor is a good example of this goal, because it needs to be immediately evident for someone who wants to just write yet also capable of fulfilling a varied spectrum of needs.

Joen: Products are never finished, and there are always aspects that can be refined or improved, the ultimate goal being to make using the product easier, faster, second-nature. If we can refine the editor to the point that its usage becomes second nature, we’ll have something great.


Today, we know that design is more about iteration than it is about perfection, but that absolutely does not stop designers like Joen and Matías from iterating with the spirit of perfection. And with the new set of refinements launching today on, one can definitely see that commitment to craft in action. Those refinements include:

  • A new distraction-free writing mode.
  • Your recent drafts available in the top toolbar.
  • Better clarity on the saved state of a post.
  • Permanently visible publish/preview buttons.

Together, we hope they will they help fine-tune the writing experience. (And if you have a self-hosted WordPress site with the Jetpack plugin, you’ll also be able to use the new editor features.)


The new editor experience we are launching today.

JM: What are you most excited about with this improved writing experience, and what do you hope most for the writer when they’re using it?

Joen: Everything has a right place. In this iteration, we’ve tried to find those places for the preview and publish buttons, as well as the post settings. By making the buttons permanently visible and the sidebar optionally toggled, my hope is that the combination will provide a seamless flow for both the person who just wants to write, as well as the person who needs to configure their post settings.

All the settings for your post or page are now pop out of the right side of the screen.

Matías: I’m glad we were able to bring back the notion of a distraction free environment that puts the content in the center. I’m also fond of the recent drafts menu next to the “Write” button, as it provides a quick way to carry on with your unfinished posts. These editor refinements have the potential to let your work on WordPress keep you deeply in the productive state of flow.

You now know the immediate status of your work as it is written to the cloud.

Your drafts are easily accessible, and always visible to work on quickly.

JM: Are there any other design evolutions or revolutions coming down the pipeline for that you can speak about?

Joen: There’s a group of us focusing on editor improvements right now in the WordPress community at large. The key bits are embracing “blocks” as a way to attach more advanced layout options to each section of a post, so people can easily and quickly write richer articles than they could in the past.

Matías: We want to make it easy, and pleasurable, to create any kind of content with the editor. I believe that the essence of design is about the intersection of culture and technology — and we’re doing just that with this improved writing experience. It is a privilege that this effort is being done within the diverse open source community of WordPress, it means you not only own your content but you also have ownership over the tools with which it is created.

JM: Thanks so much for your time, Joen and Matías! I’ve enjoyed using the new distraction-free writing experience and can tell you I definitely got this post finished a little faster than usual. You’ve given me new focus.

Your Stats Page, Updated

Sometimes it’s the little things that count — especially when it comes to your stats. We’ve recently gathered some of your feedback and used it to work through a few renovations. Let’s take a quick tour!

Today First: Many of you wanted to make today’s stats a priority, with easy access to yesterday’s stats as well. So now when you visit a site’s stats, you’ll see the Days view first, with data displayed for the last 30 days. A quick click on the arrow will take you to yesterday’s stats, or you can click on any bar to view full stats for that day.

Click a bar or the arrow to switch days

See More Information at Once: If you use a wide screen, you’ll notice we’ve widened the display area and included three columns of statistics. Smaller screens still display one or two columns — whatever fits your device best.

Many of you wanted to be able to see more weeks and months worth of data at once, too. Now our Weeks view displays up to 30 weeks if that data is available. Similarly, the Months view displays data up to 30 months.


click-the-arrowMore Summaries: Want to see your all-time top posts? Are you curious how many visits your site has had from different countries? If a stat has an arrow by its title, you can click that for summaries of various periods, including a new All Time tab.

Click on an individual post title to view its summary as well, including a list of likes. Want to see what that post looks like on different devices? Click the view icon to see previews. We’ve even included an edit link in case you need to update anything.

More Insights: To find some detailed all-time data for the whole site, click on Insights. You’ll find a summary table that shows your views per month since your site began.


Click Average per Day to find the average clicks per day in each of those months. And if you’d like to drill deeper to a specific month? Just click on it and you’ll be on the Months tab again, with all of the data for that month.

Follower Totals: You can now see your Reader followers, email followers, and totals for your social followers in one glance. It’s all on your Insights page, and we’ve included links for easy access to more details.

A Few More Updates: We’ve added a Last Updated Timestamp so you can see when our stats last ran. We’ve added a mini stats sparkline to your My Sites toolbar. And for those who want to analyze their data further, we’ve added more Download CSV options.

Thank You! To those who provided feedback, as well as to the developers and designers who worked through iterations, thank you. We hope these small changes add up to a great experience for you, because you’re more than just a number to us.
