Bookmark Posts with Save For Later

No time to read right now? No problem: save posts for when you do.

Maybe you’re reading a blog post while sipping your morning tea when you suddenly realize it’s getting late, or you’re browsing on the bus — but you just got to your stop.

The WordPress.com Reader is a great tool for catching up with your favorite blogs or exploring interesting new reads. And now, you can save those posts and resume reading at your leisure with Save For Later.

How does it work?

First, make sure you have the newest version of the  WordPress app on your phone or tablet — version 10.2. Open the app, and head into the Reader.

Saving content for later

Whenever you find a post you’d like to save for later, tap the bookmark icon (Bookmark outlined). The icon will change from an outline to a solid color (Bookmark solid background) so you know the post has been saved.

Repeat the process as many times as you like! You can save posts from your list of Followed Sites, Discover, Search, or My Likes — anywhere in the Reader.

Reading your saved content

When you’re ready to read, open the app again, go back to the Reader, and select Saved Posts. Everything you saved will be waiting for you there, even if your device is offline.

Once you’ve read a post, you can remove it by tapping the bookmark icon again.

A few other notes

In this initial release, images aren’t guaranteed to be available offline. More importantly, Saved Posts is currently a device-specific feature — saved posts aren’t synced between devices or the web, so they’re only available on the device where you saved them. Logging out or uninstalling the app will delete them.

Give feedback and get involved

The WordPress mobile apps are free and available on both Android and iOS.

If you have any questions or feedback, reach out to our in-app support team by tapping Me → Help & Support → Contact Us.

If you’re a developer and would like to contribute to the project, learn how you can get involved.

Happy reading, now or later!

    Thanks very much – that’s really helpful when using my phone. Is there a way of doing this using my laptop which I generally do when reading blogs, please? Many thanks, Ellie.

      Hi! You might need to force an update. On iOS, Open the App Store app, tap Updates. If you don’t see the update, you might need to pull down to refresh the list. On Android, open the Google Play Store app, tap the menu icon, then My Apps & Games, select the WordPress app, then tap More.

    I always wanted some feature like this on the app. It’s easy to bookmark a page on a computer but not on a phone where I use the WordPress app. Thanks a lot!

    Great idea! What about those of us who still prefer to read on a desktop? I’m on a Macbook and can’t see this feature on the Reader.

    Good info!! Thanks also for telling how to “force an update”…..I too didn’t realize I did not have the most current version and couldn’t figure out how to get it to Update. 🙂
