    Question Wordpress Blogging from a Blackberry

    So I recently got a crack... err... blackberry. It's great. I love it I. Am. Mobile.

    The problem is that I haven't found a really great app to post to my self-hosted wordpress blog from my blackberry. It's technically possible to do it using the phone's browser, but it's a PITA. Opera Mini is no better, as it collapses the input box down to nothing.

    Anyone know of any really great apps for it? I'm using BBMetaBlog which I found though Christina Warren's blog, which I found through Google, and it works, but it's missing some stuff... like categories, formatting options, links, etc.

    Anyone got something better?

    Theoretically, you can post via email, but for some reason it's not working on my install, and I haven't the patience to try to fix it (though I have the patience to scour the internets for an app to do the same thing, which will probably take longer than fixing the email problem. Figure that one out.)

    Since you are going to avoid the easy solution (ie, posting by e-mail), might as well throw away your phone and get a better phone (read Iphone...).

    Just a thought. :)

    Can't have an iPhone at work for security reasons, and I jsut spent the three-kid limited money on the blackberry.

    The problem with the WP mail posting is that it jsut doesn't do anything. I've checked and re-checked the mail server data, passwords, email address and everythign, bu tit jsut won't read from that server to post the messages.

    Nay, Nay Moosebreath ( )

    I've managed to post a fairly lengthy (about 6 paragraphs) blog post whilst sitting on the human digestive effluent disposal devise. Once you get used to it, it's not so bad.

    It's a BB 8700c. Fully QWERTY. Not one of those little Pearl doohickies.
