  • Cant use post a comment

    • Hi,
      It does not work to reply with comments to my blog. 
      The app only asks for an email address and a message, when i tap submit, it says comment submitted, but nothing appears on my site, also not on the pending comments section. 
    • Did you replace the comments engine in your blog with something like the Disqus plugin? My plugin only supports the built-in comments engine...
    • No, i use the default comment system. But my visitors need to leave a name and email adres. In de app there is only a email feeld. 
    • Comment relating plugins i use:
      Better WordPress Recent Comments
      Jetpack by
      None of those should have any effect on the comment system right?
    • Hiddy was the problem. Seems like it cant work with Captcha
    • yeah - keep in mind that this is a starter kit, not a full-blown finished application.  Each implementor may have to (or want to) do some custom tweaking :-)

    • Hello!
      I have one big problem with this Starter Kit. If blog contains publications with non-English text (with encoding UTF-8), then the application incorrectly displays the contents of the publication or the application terminates with an error. The problem is contained in the plugin or application? Will the change solves the problem?
    • The problem is mostly solved
    • What did you do to mostly solve it? Is this something we could incorporate back into the source code?
    • I have the same problem with russian encoding. Do you know solution?
    • The problem is that WordPress plugin that gives the contents in UTF, but in fact the content encoded into ASCII. I has not turned the encoding of content at plugin side. I did it at mobile app. But of course it affects the performance of mobile app.
    • @Petrishko - if you have suggestions on how to improve the plugin, I'm all ears :-)
  • I get the following error when i change the website URL and test run the emulator...

    • I get the following error when i change the website URL and test run the emulator...
      Unexpected XML declaration. The XML declaration must be the first node in the document, and no white space characters are allowed to appear before it. Line 2, position 3.
    • I'm not seeing the same thing - did you test against It could be that your Wordpress plugin did not install correctly...

    • Hey chris,
      i would like to try your app, but when I upload the Plugin, Wordpress says, that your plugin has created two chars unexpected.
      When i try to start the app on my phone, I get an exception right after the start, because it will fetch something but only gets a "headers already sent" which causes the exception.
      Can you look if you find the error?
      I'm using wordpress 3.3.1
      Sorry for my bad english, but I'm german^^
    • I tested it again. Wordpress is already on version 3.3.1 and your plugin is only tested up to v3.1.1
      Could you please upgrade it?
      Else, I won't be able to use it, which will be very sad
