Now Available in the Mobile Apps: Revision History

The ability to load a previous version of a page or post is invaluable when you need to make a quick correction or compare your current revision to earlier ones. What about viewing your content’s revision history on the go? This can be a real life-saver, as we’re not always at our desktops. Well, we’re thrilled to announce that you can now review your content’s history and load revisions for both pages and posts directly from the WordPress mobile apps.

View History

The revision history of every page or post you’ve worked on is available right from the editor. Just tap My SitesSite Pages or Blog Posts → any page or post → three-dots button → History.

View History

The history list shows you the time each revision was created (organized by date), the author of the revision, as well as the number of additions and deletions for each revision. To view the content of each revision, tap it on the list.

Load Revision

If you’d like to continue working on an earlier version of your page or post, tap the Load button while viewing the content of a revision. You can view the content in either HTML or a visual format — just tap the three-dot menu and select HTML preview or Visual preview, respectively.

Subdominios .blog gratuitos

Durante estos últimos trece años, el número de sitios en WordPress.com no ha dejado de crecer. Todos y cada uno de esos sitios tienen una dirección wordpress.com unica. Y, dado que se crean millones de sitios cada año, eso significa que esa que estás buscando puede no estar disponible.

Hoy se abre un nuevo abanico de posibilidades: los subdominios .blog gratuitos.

¿Qué es un subdominio?

¡Me alegro de que lo preguntes! La dirección de este sitio es blog.wordpress.com. Aquí, wordpress.com es el dominio y blog es el subdominio.

Digamos que te llamas Magdalena y estás empezando a crear un blog de cocina. Y el dominio cocinaconmagdalena.wordpress.com (aquel que vendría a ser el subdominio cocinaconmagdalena en wordpress.com) ya ha sido registrado por alguna otra persona. O que estás empezando un sitio en el que pensabas ofrecer consejos sobre tecnología pero alguien ya está usando consejostecnologia.wordpress.com, ¡menudo fastidio!

Ahora tienes más opciones: puedes elegir usar uno de los subdominios .blog gratuitos, como magdalena.food.blog o consejos.tech.blog. Aquí tienes una lista de los dominios .blog más populares que hemos reservado para solo para esto:

  • art.blog
  • business.blog
  • car.blog
  • code.blog
  • data.blog
  • design.blog
  • family.blog
  • fashion.blog
  • finance.blog
  • fitness.blog
  • food.blog
  • game.blog
  • health.blog
  • home.blog
  • law.blog
  • movie.blog
  • music.blog
  • news.blog
  • photo.blog
  • poetry.blog
  • politics.blog
  • school.blog
  • science.blog
  • sport.blog
  • tech.blog
  • travel.blog
  • video.blog
  • water.blog

Estos subdominios .blog funcionan igual que los habituales subdominios wordpress.com; no expiran, puedes usarlos de forma gratuita mientras tu sitio exista, y podrás reemplazarlos por un dominio personalizado en cualquier momento.

¿Cómo consigo uno?

Primero, crea tu nuevo sitio. En el primer paso del proceso de creación, te preguntaremos por el objetivo principal de tu sitio, selecciona únicamente la opción de “Comparte ideas, experiencias, novedades, reseñas, historias, videos o fotos”. Por nuestra experiencia, aquellos que seleccionan esta opción son generalmente los que ecuentran esos subdominios .blog más apropiados para su sitio. Rellena también los otros campos y clica en Continuar.

Ahora, en el siguiente paso donde puedes buscar una dirección para tu sitio, verás una opción gratuita en lo alto de la lista. Te sugeriremos un subdominio .blog relacionado a los términos que hayas escrito en el primer paso. Por ejemplo, si buscaste “consejos sobre tecnología”, puede que sugiramos consejos.tech.blog como una posible dirección para tu sitio.

Segundo paso

Clica en el botón Elegir que ves junto a la dirección que has elegido y ya está todo listo.

Tu nuevo sitio y su dirección perfecta están solo a unos cuantos clics de distancia. Y si creas un nuevo sitio con uno de esos subdominios .blog, no dudes en dejar un comentario. ¡Estamos deseando ver vuestras creaciones!

Announcing Free .blog Subdomains

Over the last thirteen years or so, the number of sites on WordPress.com has grown — a lot. Every one of those sites gets a unique wordpress.com address. And since there are millions of sites created each year, it means the address you’d like isn’t always available.

Today, a whole new range of possibility opens up: free .blog subdomains.

What’s a subdomain?

Glad you asked! This site’s address is is blog.wordpress.com. Here, wordpress.com is the domain and blog is the subdomain.

Say your name is Molly and you’re starting a food blog. The domain mollysfoodblog.wordpress.com — that is, the subdomain “mollysfoodblog” on wordpress.com — is already taken by someone. Or you’re starting a website to offer tech advice; but there’s already a site using techadvice.wordpress.com, drat!

Now you have more options: you can choose to use a free subdomain with a .blog address, like mollys.food.blog or advice.tech.blog. There’s a list of popular .blog domains we’ve reserved just for this:

  • art.blog
  • business.blog
  • car.blog
  • code.blog
  • data.blog
  • design.blog
  • family.blog
  • fashion.blog
  • finance.blog
  • fitness.blog
  • food.blog
  • game.blog
  • health.blog
  • home.blog
  • law.blog
  • movie.blog
  • music.blog
  • news.blog
  • photo.blog
  • poetry.blog
  • politics.blog
  • school.blog
  • science.blog
  • sport.blog
  • tech.blog
  • travel.blog
  • video.blog
  • water.blog

These .blog subdomains work just like the regular wordpress.com subdomains — they don’t expire, they’re free to use for the lifetime of your site, and you can always replace them with a custom domain at any time.

How do I get one?

First, create your new site. In the first step of signup, we’ll ask you about your goal for your site — select only the “Share ideas, experiences, updates, reviews, stories, videos, or photos” option. In our experience, the people who select this option generally find that a .blog subdomain fits their site well. Fill out the other fields as well, and click Continue

Now, in the next step when searching for a site address, you’ll see a free option at the top of the list. We’ll suggest a .blog subdomain related to the terms you entered in the first step. For example, if you searched for “Tech Advice,” we might suggest advice.tech.blog as an address for your site.

Click Select next to the address you choose, and you’re all set,

Your new website and its perfect address are only a few clicks away. If you start a new site with a .blog subdomain, let us know in the comments! We’d love see what you create.

WordPress Support Workshops for Women in the Asia-Pacific Region

Automattic wants to build a new web, and a new type of workplace.  We want to deliver world-class 24/7 support to our users, and an innovative, exciting, and healthy work environment for our staff worldwide. As a part of  this, we recruit from all timezones so that everyone has the freedom to choose their own work hours.

In Happiness in particular, we want to provide better support coverage in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, and our APAC recruiting efforts have included everything from advertising on social media and job boards to in-person networking at WordCamps and WordPress Meetups.

While we’ve hired some great Happiness Engineers, we discovered that the ratio of women applicants was dropping over time. As awareness of Automattic as a distributed employer has grown in the region, the number of applications from men has grown faster than those from women.

Given Automattic’s commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion, we brainstormed ways to reach women more effectively. This turned into a series of workshops on WooCommerce held for women in India and Singapore throughout 2018.

In 2019 we’ll take our message to a broader audience by offering an online workshop. This will let us reach women in many more countries and cities than we could ever visit in a calendar year. We’re partnering with Support Driven, an online community of support professionals, to promote support as a career for women who may have the relevant skills but haven’t applied for these roles.

In January 2019 we’ll launch the first online workshop for women in APAC focused on developing skills in WordPress support. The course will cover:

  • Goals of great customer support
  • Developing your own support philosophy
  • WordPress troubleshooting
  • Productivity tools
  • Support as a career

By the end of the course, students will have developed a résumé and portfolio site on WordPress to share with potential employers.

Setting Up Your Site on a Mobile Device Just Got a Lot Easier

Starting a new website is always exciting: you’ve chosen a topic, found the right name, and started building it on WordPress.com.

Now you may be asking yourself, “What’s next?” Well, when you create a site on the WordPress for Android or WordPress for iOS mobile apps, the answer will became a lot easier with the introduction of Quick Start, a new tool that guides you through the setup process.

How Quick Start works

After you create a new site on your WordPress app, you’ll see a prompt asking if you want some assistance setting it up. Tap Yes! and you’ll find Quick Start: a short list of to-do items that will set you on the path to success.

Photo of two mobile devices showing the Quick Start screen

With Quick Start, you’ll be able to…

  • View your site from within the apps.
  • Select a new theme.
  • Customize your site.
  • Create a new blog post.
  • Set up your sharing preferences.
  • Follow new sites in the WordPress.com Reader.

These are all tasks that will help you start on the right foot. Exploring these options won’t take very long, but once you’ve gone through the list you’ll have a website ready to welcome its first visitors — and all the pieces in place for future growth and success.

Available now

Quick Start is part of the WordPress for Android app (version 10.8 or higher) and WordPress for iOS (version 11.1). If you’ve got an iPhone, iPad, or Android device and have been thinking of launching a new site, this is the time to take the plunge!

A New Way to Manage Your Pages on the WordPress Mobile Apps

We’ve made a small change to the WordPress mobile apps to make it easier for you to navigate and edit your pages. In previous versions of WordPress for iOS and Android, your pages were ordered by the date they were created as opposed to what your actual page hierarchy looks like on your website. Users told us they found it difficult to find the page they were looking to edit, so we’ve now updated this section to match the layout of your site.

Here’s how to try it out

First, make sure you’ve updated your WordPress app to the last version. Open the app, got to the My Site section, select a site and then select Site Pages.

If a page has one or more child pages, the new layout represents the hierarchical view using an indentation on the left. If a page is a top level page, it won’t be indented.

Set a parent page

To set a parent page or a top level page, click on the [3 dots menu] on the right of the page you want to edit, then select Set Parent. The app will show you the list of the available pages and the Top level option. You can use the search bar at the top to easily find the page you are looking for. Select the option you require and tap the Done button.

Send feedback

The WordPress mobile apps are free and available on both Android and iOS. If you have any questions or feedback, reach out to our in-app support team by tapping Me → Help & Support → Contact Us. If you’re a developer and would like to contribute to the project, learn how you can get involved. Enjoy!

Registro de Actividad

Estar al tanto de lo que sucede en tu sitio es es importante tanto a nivel de seguridad como a la hora de controlar tu contenido: ¿Quién ha publicado esa entrada? ¿Qué comentarios están pendientes de ser aprobados? ¿Cuándo se ha activado o desactivado ese otro plugin? ¿Qué imágenes se han añadido a una entrada concreta?

Ahora en WordPress.com dispones de una nueva pestaña desde la cual ver toda la actividad de tu sitio de una manera organizada y fácil de seguir. Se llama Actividad y el nombre es tan sencillo como la manera de usarlo.

Actividad te muestra una lista cronológica de todos los cambios y actualizaciones que se van haciendo en tu sitio. Esto sirve para tener una panorámica de lo que sucede en tu sitio y es especialmente útil para administradores de sitios grandes en los que participan muchos colaboradores.

  • Entradas y páginas que han sido publicadas o actualizadas.
  • Nuevos comentarios y comentarios que han sido aprobados.
  • Cambios en los ajustes y opciones de tu sitio.

  • Puedes ver la lista completa de actividades que se registran tanto en sitios de WordPress.com y como en sitios conectados mediante Jetpack.

Si quieres puedes ir a Actividad y verás los 20 cambios o actualizaciones más recientes que se han hecho en tu sitio. En tus sitios de WordPress.com o en sitios conectados mediante Jetpack con un plan de pago verás todos los eventos de los últimos 30 días. En el caso de disponer de un plan Business (WordPress.com) o Professional (Jetpack) verás todos los eventos del último año.

Es posible filtrar por tipo de actividad y por rango de fechas.

Para poder identificar toda tu actividad de manera visual, todos los eventos de un mismo tipo que han sucedido de manera consecutiva se muestran agrupados en un solo bloque, teniendo la opción de expandir dicho bloque para ver los detalles de cada una de las acciones.


Las actividades de un mismo tipo se muestran agrupadas.

Introducing Activity

Knowing what’s going on behind the scenes of your site is key to engagement and security.  Who published a post? What comments need to be approved? When was a plugin activated or deactivated? What images were added to a specific page?

Now, there’s a new tab in WordPress.com where you can see all your site’s activity outlined in an organized, readable way: It’s called Activity, because monitoring your site should be as simple as possible.

Activity shows you a chronological list of all the changes and updates to your site. It’s useful for site owners who want to keep an eye on the big picture of their site, as well as for admins on larger sites with multiple contributors.

Activity shows you things like:

  • Published or updated posts and pages.
  • Comment submission and management activity.
  • Settings and options modifications.
  • Login attempts by registered site users.
  • Plugin installations, updates, and removals.
  • Theme switches, installations, updates, and deletions.
  • See the complete list of activities for WordPress.com and Jetpack sites.

Head to Activity right now, and you’ll be able to see your site’s 20 most recent changes and updates. On WordPress.com or Jetpack sites with a paid plan you’ll see events from the last 30 days, and if you have the Business or Professional plan respectively, you’ll see events from the last year.

All sites with a paid plan have the added ability to filter activities by type and time range so you can quickly find the information you’re looking for.

To keep things scannable, sequential events of the same type are grouped in a single item — expand it to see details for all of the collected actions.

Activity is also a great place for Jetpack subscribers to investigate site downtime or bugginess. See what changes happened around the time of the issue, and use the details to focus your troubleshooting and get back up and running, fast.

You can also view your list of activities on the WordPress mobile apps.

Stay up to date on the latest theme and plugin updates

For sites with plugins and uploaded themes, keeping them up to date and knowing what was updated when are key to security and stability. Activity not only shows you all the details in one place, but lets Jetpack and WordPress.com Business plan subscribers update themes and plugins directly from the Activity tab.

We’re constantly striving to be better

Give Activity a try on your sites and let us know if you have any feedback — we’d love to hear it! Please leave a comment below or open an issue in our GitHub repository.
