I have blogged several times about my desire and struggle to be able to create blog posts from my BlackBerry. I am not satisfied with Postie or the built-in emailable blog posting capability of WordPress. Too many delays and punctuation and formatting issues to make them reliable solutions.
However, I think I may have found a solution in the recently upgraded WordPress 2.7 “Press This” feature.
Press This is a shortcut bookmark feature to save on a browser for fast blog postings when on a web page of interest. Instead of saving it to my desktop browser, I saved the link to my BlackBerry browser. I opened the bookmark on my phone, was given the most basic posting options, and this post is the result. Press This allows me to post directly to my blog without opening my blog’s full admin screen (which does not open on my BlackBerry due to all the coding and features there).
This is my second post using Press This, and I wanted to share this success with anybody out there who is also struggling to post to a WordPress blog from a BlackBerry.

This is good news. Thanks Jeffrey, I hadn’t realized this could be done.
This is the only way I have gotten this to work; I only wish it could be done while offline, such as when on a train! Perhaps the trick is to write in an email and then copy and paste into Press This?
have you tried the mobile plugin for wordpress? On our site if you visit on the blackberry you get a mobile version, and pc you get regular website.

Nice site of yours.
I could not find the mobile plugin on your site; can you provide a link to it?
