Known Issues

Anthologize is currently an alpha release—a rapidly created prototype—and has its fair share of issues. We have listed some of the know issues below; please feel free to discuss your issues, questions, and feature requests in the anthologize-users group. A full list of known issues is available in the Anthologize github page.

  • When importing an external feed rather than the items already in your WordPress blog, you must specify the URL to this feed. If you have previously exported a feed and would like to import it, you must first place that feed on a server accessible via HTTP—the file upload function is not currently in place.
  • When listing the available items for dragging into your project, the items only appear in reverse chronological order; currently there is no mechanism for sorting these items by date, author, title, or post/page/media type.
