Testing Post by Email

by   |  07.11.09  |  Updates

Last semester we had several faculty members help us test web services that made it easier to post to a WordPress blog. Some of their favorites were the WP iPhone app (from the App Store), the PressThis applet (check the Tools tab in your blog Dashboard), and websites like Posterous.

The last of these offered interested bloggers a simple way to update their blog with text posts, photos, media files, even PDFs and other documents by sending a single email. The downside was each user had to set up a separate account and keep a second version of their blog at Posterous.com.

For the fall we have a far simpler solution built right into WordPress MU
