Studio for WP app is available on multiple platforms including Windows 10 PC, Windows 10 Mobile, Windows Phone 8.1, Android and Alexa enabled devices.
Earlier last week, we ran into a login issue with Windows 10 Mobile devices. Our investigation revealed that this issue is due to updated login pages at WordPress.com and causing crashes on Windows 10 Mobile devices, including from the browser. Since Microsoft is no longer updating Windows 10 devices except for security fixes, we do not expect a fix very soon.
Introducing login with Authorization code
For Windows 10 Mobile devices, we are enabling a feature called ‘Login with Authorization code‘. When adding a blog to your account, you will now be prompted to enter an authorization code instead of your regular sign-in process.
You can get the authorization code using any our app on any other platform or device. Supported devices include Windows 10 PC and Android devices.
How to get the authorization code
- Login using the regular sign-in process on our ‘Studio for WP’ app on PC/Android device.
- Head over to Settings and click Accounts.
- Tap and hold the account you wish to get authorization code, and select ‘copy auth code’.
- Authorization code is coped to clipboard, you may send it to your Windows 10 Mobile phone using any email, text, chat apps like WhatsApp or any other app.
To get latest features, we recommend using our Windows 10 PC and Android app. We may re-enable login using regular process on Windows 10 Mobile, if the login issue fixed either by WordPress or Microsoft.
Please get in touch with us for any issues with login on any of our apps.
