Offline Editing

There are several desktop applications that you can use to write and publish content for your WordPress.com site, even without being connected to the internet. You may often hear this referred to as “offline editing.” Below are some examples of offline editors.

Offline editors

WordPress.com supports the major posting standards, such as the MetaWeblog API, so you should be able to use most applications that you come across. Here are a few offline editors/publishers you can try:

Mac
Windows
Linux
  • QTM
Multi-platform
  • Shareaholic (Firefox Add-on)
  • Google Docs (should work in all major browsers for both WordPress.com and Jetpack-connected sites)

These applications may ask for something like an XML-RPC (or API) endpoint, which will be your site domain followed by “xmlrpc.php". So, for example, if your site is at matt.wordpress.com, your endpoint would be:

matt.wordpress.com/xmlrpc.php

Official WordPress.com apps

Did you know you could take your homepage and edit your site right from your desktop and mobile? Our apps are available on the following platforms and you can download them from apps.wordpress.com:

  • Mac OS X
  • Windows (7+)
  • Linux
  • iOS
  • Android

Note that the desktop apps need an active internet connection to work. The mobile apps can be used to write posts while offline.

Any desktop application will also require a username and password – this is the same username and password that you use to login to WordPress.com.
