WordPress for journalists

Today they echoed in Periodismociudadano.com of a article of 10,000 words in which show the virtues of WordPress as a tool of journalism, especially indicated for field reporters, thanks to its characteristics and simplicity.

In the article, they break down 5 ways in which WordPress is very useful for journalists in the field and, of course, for any connected user who has to publish from outside their usual office or home environment:

1. WordPress mobile applications

WordPress dispose of mobile applications with which practically in any platform, a journalist can publish sue articles, from a WiFi network or through 3G connection:

And if you do not have any of these smartphones You can always access from any other mobile to http://m.wordpress.com/ .

With any of these applications you can post, add photos, review your content before publishing it, moderate comments and , of course, publish content on the network from your mobile.

2. Publish by voice

Although not available for the entire world, the option of publish by voice which I already talked about in its day, can be a very interesting solution for reporters in difficult situations ( enemy fire, darkness), in which they can not type what they want to publish. It can also be a great resource for publishing interviews.

The system, as I mentioned, is simple, you just have to go to your desktop (from WordPress.com), then to My Sites and Activate publish by voice. To publish you just have to call the number indicated there, enter your secret code and start talking. You have up to one hour per call, and the call stops by itself if you stop talking for 10 seconds.

3. Geolocation of your publications

If you are reporting from several sites you can add geolocation to each of them, either manually or automatically. You will find it in your blog on wordpress.com in "Users -> Personal settings -> My location -> Activate geolocation" (well, in fact you still get the texts in English). You can also do it in a WordPress hosted by geolocation plugins .

4. Publish via SMS

If you are in a situation with a bad connection, without 3G but with basic mobile coverage, you can publish via SMS an option that you will also find on the Settings page of your WordPress site. com

Even in this very spartan mode you can moderate and respond to comments and, of course, post entries.

5. Upload videos from mobile with VideoPress

VideoPress is a high quality video platform that, of course, also supports the uploading of video files from any of the WordPress mobile applications. It is not free but its price (about € 84 a year) is adjusted for the quality and possibilities it offers, especially for the professional.

As if this were not enough, there are dozens of WordPress plugins for journalists ]which will complement these 5 tips.

And, well, this is the compilation that you do in the original article, can you think of one more oriented to journalists?

Post by voice in WordPress

Let's see, I do not mean that you see your WordPress on the phone not even that post "from" your phone iPhone Android or Blackberry I mean post by phone to your blog, with the voice . Do you find it incredible ?, since in LifeJournal can be done some time ago, and from now on in WordPress.com, I guess soon using some plugin in our sites with WordPress hosted. [19659003] The system implanted in WordPress.com which you can access from the menu of " My blogs " ( https://misitio.wordpress.com/wp-admin /index.php?page=my-blogs) once activated, use the system Twilio an application in the cloud of voice communications.

Once enabled, you can call the number of phone listing on the "My blogs" screen, enter your secret code when prompted and follow the instructions. You can even regenerate the secret code as many times as you need to guarantee an adequate level of security.

There is some peculiarity of the service that you should keep in mind:

  • The maximum duration of the call is 1 hour, although Automattic does not dismiss charging for the service in the future.
  • If there is 10 seconds of silence the recording ends.
  • You do not need to update your space account in WordPress.com to use "Publish by voice"
  • Normal call prices apply (but be aware that the phone is international, so it's not viable for most mortals from outside the US)

The result is your recorded voice message and published in your post, and also available as RSS podcast. You can, like any other, be sent to Facebook or Twitter thanks to the functionality also included in WordPress.com, like any other entry.

As you can see, the service is not for most of us, very expensive from outside the US, but it opens a really interesting world of possibilities. I, of course, am eager to publish by voice, but for the moment I am going to contain myself.
