Posting to WP via Email

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know how to format an email to post to a WP blog? One that is not hosted on your own domain, but by wordpress.com?

I have read a bit on it, but it would be cool to see an example.

:)

Hi Chrisi,

I have yet to try this feature. I've read up on it too and so far, what I've gathered is you can use it on either the free WP or a self-hosted WP. You need to set up an email account that will be used solely for this purpose and for security reasons, it is best that it is an email address that only you know. They emphasize the need for severe discretion because one everything's been set up, all emails received by WP from the email address you set up will be posted on your site.

Like I said, I haven't tried it yet but want to. Useful instructions are available in the Wordpress Codex. I'll see if I can give it a go later in the week and let you know. :)

Hi Cecille,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I've seen that file. I was thinking it would be nice to do it via email especially since I have about 15 WP blogs to post to. :P

If you get around to a formatted email let me know. I just don't have time to figure it out right now.

Thanks :)

Hi, you can use the default feature of wordpress to post via email or use a plugin called postie which offers more advanced features, such as images and controlling categories and authors etc, I have used postie for over 2 years now and it works perfectly

(i sponsor a motorcycle racer and he posts to our blog trackside)
