Version 1.8 Released

wpwindowsphone-1-8-comment-moderationThe team is excited to announce version 1.8 of WordPress for Windows Phone! This update not only runs better but also has a cool new comments moderation UI.

Comments moderation changes

Save time by moderating several comments at once with the new “bulk edit” mode. The ability to moderate multiple comments at once is now available right from the comments list.

Simply tap the moderate icon in the toolbar to access bulk moderation. Tap the checkboxes next to the comments to select them, then tap a moderation option to moderate them all at once.

But wait, there’s more! It’s now possible to filter comments by their status, just open the menu and select one of the filters.

Here are other improvements and bugs fixed in version 1.8:

  • Multi-sites and subdirectory installations can now be added to the app without hassle, as long as the app can access the RSD endpoint of your site.
  • Bug fix: the loading indicator no longer occasionally stays on the screen when the back button is pressed.
  • A bunch of minor issues related to the connectivity layer were fixed in this release.
