Frequently asked questions.

Here are some answers to common questions about Gibberish. If you don’t see your question here, feel free to email me.

Can I use Gibberish for my own blog?

Unfortunately, Gibberish isn’t designed to be used for other blogs. It’s a standalone platform.

Can I cross-post to my blog?

You can copy the markdown text from the app or get it from the website by adding .text to the end of the URL. If your blog supports importing from RSS, that works too.

Why is there a delay with the RSS?

The delay is intentional. It gives you a chance to make last-minute adjustments after publishing. Plus, most RSS readers don’t crawl more often than every hour.

Why did the tutorial posts disappear after I logged in?

The tutorial posts are there to help new users get started. Once you’re logged in, they’re replaced by your own posts.

Why aren’t changes to my blog posts synced?

Gibberish is designed to be offline-first. This means you can use the app and make changes to your posts even when you’re not connected to the internet.

To see the changes on the web, you need to trigger a sync action in the app. If you don’t manually trigger a sync, Gibberish automatically syncs every 15 minutes.

Why doesn’t the code block syntax work?

The four-space indentation syntax for code blocks was disabled because it’s awkward to type out in a messaging-like UI. You can still create code blocks using the triple-backtick syntax, though.
