Uploading photos and text

  1. Uploading text and photos is deadly slow for iPad mini...I'm considering abandoning WP to try Google Blogspot. or some other interface (but not Facebook!) I'm in a quality hotel with WiFi in each and every room, and still I feel like I'm slogging through mud.

    In particular, the WP mobile app won't do ANYTHING I ask it to do, and so I have to go through the regular WP website. Any tips? I'm on the road in SE Asia and going nuts trying to blog about it when it should be fun.

    "Far West Passage" is the blog title.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Well, many ISPs do block WordPress or parts of WordPress: some in Vietnam I believe do. Many in Turkey and Russia as well. That could be the problem if simply using a different connection (like a phone instead of an iPad using wifi) speeds things up.

  3. Thanks for your reply. I'm in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and can't imagine why any internet site would be blocked. Unfortunately, my iPad is my only link to the world...and usually it is enough.

  4. Indonesia can be problematic, although I have no specific reports of internet blockage or censorship right now. But I can tell you that when I was there in 96 the only place to access the internet was the government post office, and an armed guard stood by the whole time, watching. Well, snoozing, but still! I would expect the internet in Indonesia to be heavily monitored.

    Then again, it could just be that the hotel's wifi is crappy. If you can find a Starbucks or similar place that offers wifi, try taking the iPad there and see if it works better.

  5. I'm moving to a university guest house on Sunday and so will try again using their main server. Thanks!

  6. Good luck!
