Does this mean that beta testing is now over?
We’re going to start pushing for much more frequent updates, so we can address bugs and push out new features more quickly. 2.6 was kindof a big hurdle to get over due to the complete overhaul of the way Local Drafts work, so it took a good bit of time.
Sweet! I’ll have take a look at the new 2.6.1 beta package (after scrubbing the previous ad hoc from iTunes).
I’m in the process of switching hosts (so I haven’t tried altering the .htcacess), but I might test this out on my P2 blog (a theme that I already love!).
Looking forward to the future of WordPress iOS–mainly because it means I can chill with my Android/Blackberry friends without them showing off their WP apps (especially my Evo friend! Grrrrrrrr!).
Thanks. So are we!
Let me know if you need any help with the .htaccess stuff. I think we’ll have quite a bit of WPorg users who will need to make this change.
After changing my .htcaccess the app still crashed. However this comes to no surprise (as my current host has been acting funky since they upgraded the server–hence the reason for the move).
I’ll try to beta test it on a fresh server elsewhere.
Thanks for testing. We’ll definitely want to make sure our WPorg users can use the new Video feature as much as possible so I’d like to figure out what’s going on with your current server if possible. Do you see anything in the logs that might give us a clue?
Do you know where I can search the logs to find out? And yeah, it failed on all 3 servers that I tested. Basically the video compresses and that app crashes after attempting to upload.
I tried it on a fresh install too (same thing). Is there a certain plugin that we need?
No plugins should be necessary. On my 3.0 site I’ve got these in my .htaccess:
php_value memory_limit 64M
php_value upload_max_filesize 50M
Maybe try adding that 2nd line and see if it helps? Also, what version of WP and how long was the video?
I’m updated to 3.0.1, and the app did the same thing after I added a second line.
On a weird note, the .htcaccess file was saying that I should try modifying the php.ini file instead (which doesn’t make sense…or does it?).
Ooh let’s try that! Do you have access to it? If so, do it this way:
memory_limit = 64M
upload_max_filesize = 50M
I do have access to it (I had to search for it across all my sites). What do I edit?
Same result. Ironically the memory limit was already set at 64M but the upload max filesize was 10M).
Either way my server prefers editing from the php.ini (as it crashes everytime I use .htcaccess).
LOL! Don’t sweat over this too much! I’ll figure something out later. I’m just glad I can upload multiple images where I want them (instead of them all appearing at the bottom).
On a side note, this might be the reason why BlogPress opted for YouTube instead of natively uploading videos.
Not at all. We’ll be testing and adding fixes for a 2.6.1 release to be submitted next week.
Any news/update on when 2.6.1 will be released to the App Store?
