Support » Theme: Panel » Is there a way to post from a phone?

  • I’m using the newest version of WordPress and Panel, since I just installed it a few days ago. I’d like to be able to post comics directly from my tablet or phone, since I use my tablet to draw the comics and sometimes I’m not near my computer. The WordPress app for Android seems to only be able to make new posts, not comics, and the mobile site isn’t any better. Is there a way to post comics using email or some other workaround that I haven’t been able to find?

    Does Panel implement comics as a custom post type or as a category? In your Dashboard, under Settings > Writing, there’s an option to enable posting via email, and you can set the category that emailed posts would go under, but I don’t know if it would work for your particular needs.

    From what I’ve read on other support posts here, it seems Panel uses comics as a custom post type. I can post pictures via email into the category, but that doesn’t make them show up in the comic feed.

    A bit of Googling led to this plugin Postie that looks like it may do what you’re hoping for. It appears to be well-supported and it looks like it’s updated frequently.

    A plugin that allows you to post-by-email a particular custom post type does sound like a good solution. Might want to check out the one Stephen recommends above and see if it suits your needs.

    Thanks! That plugin looks like it will do exactly what I want. I’ll come back and resolve this topic if it works correctly.
