Using BlipPress

Please note that the examples are not currently working due to the recent major changes at Blipfoto. Please see the homepage for details, and get in touch if you’d like to be informed of developments.


BlipPress provides a number of shortcodes to display single or multiple blips within posts or pages on your WordPress website:


In addition, there are three different widgets available, as seen in the sidebar on this page:

  • The ‘latest’ widget displays the most recent blip from your journal. You can specify a different username if you wish.
  • The ‘multi’ widget shows a thumbnail gallery of recent blips from your journal. You can specify the number of thumbnails to show and the username.
  • The ‘single’ widget shows a single blip by ID number.

You can use each widget as many times as you wish, with different options in each.

Creating blips

You can create journal entries on Blipfoto directly from within the WordPress post editing screen.

Add a new post, enter the title and content, then save a draft of the post. Now click “Choose an image” in the BlipPress box to select an existing image from your media library or to upload a new one. When you click “Blip it!”, an entry will be created in your Blipfoto journal, using the image, title and content from your post.

Please note that the journal entry date will be based on the date your photo was taken, not on the publication date of your post.
