Posting via email with tags, categories

    I just now discovered by accident that there is apparently now a way to make blog posts via email. (I’m sure everyone else knew this already and I was just oblivious :-) ) I made a test post to my secondary blog (and deleted it). Works like a charm, at least for my other blog.

    But, I’m wondering if there is a way to instruct the blog in terms of what categories or tags I want to use for the post? Or are all emailed-posts automatically no-frill posts? My test post (naturally) went up “uncategorized” and with no tags etc. (since I didn’t see a way to supply them in my email). I can see that maybe being okay for emergency posts that have to go up right now at a moment when I don’t have good web access. But if I wanted it to have topic categories, tags, a description/excerpt, etc., do I assume correctly that I would then have to log in later (after I had web access again) to add them then? Or is there another way?

    Or is there a set of instructions somewhere for posting via email that I’ve overlooked? I missed the original announcement for this feature so I’m afraid I’m ignorant here.

    Thanks (primary blog) (secondary blog)

    Sure there is and you can find the very helpful support doc at


    Oops. My bad. I should have checked under “WordPress Support” before I came to forums (I was initially confused by the different options for seeking assistance, I don’t do it very often)

    For anyone else who had been wondering the same thing, I found the instructions I need at:





    Thanks, Justjennifer — looks like our comments crossed in cyberspace.
