Publish in WordPress from Google Drive • WordPress Help

There are so many people who use the service of creation and edition online of documents Google Drive ] (or Docs as you prefer), and there are so many websites created and managed with WordPress, that sooner or later someone had to connect both applications to publish in WordPress from Google Docs .

In fact I know of many people who use Google Docs for their publications, which they then copy and paste into the WordPress editor so why not to do it more simply?

 google drive to wordpress

What gets this magic is a Google Docs add-on called Publish to WordPress . And the procedure to get it going is quite simple:

(Note: for some reason the plugin does not appear if you search it from the Google Docs Add-ons menu - that would be your thing - so follow the process that I explain to you then, it works always)

  1. Install the add-on by accessing the same page .
     publish to wordpress

    Publish to WordPress

  2. Once installed (immediately) it opens Google Docs with a blank document and claims you grant permissions . You accept because otherwise it will not work.
  3. After the swallow of granting permissions returns you to the document and informs you that you already have a new menu to publish in WordPress .
     Complement activated

  4. The first thing is to access the site manager which opens on one side, to add what WordPress you'll enable to publish from Google Docs. You just have to enter a name, url, username and password.
  5. You just have to open or create a document and when you finish to write go to the menu " Add-ons -> Publish to WordPress -> Publish " and the complement is opened on the side of the document for you to choose if it will be published directly ( Publish ) or save it as draft ( Draft ).

  6. At any time you can view the entry from the link that offers the add-on or, if you make changes , you can update it from Google Docs .

The best thing is that, for example, if you insert images in the document it will not be published with links to them, but upload them to your c folder Word files automatically so you will not find differences from a normal publication.

The only thing missing is that you can not choose category or add labels so the mode of use it usually is not to publish directly but save as a draft and then, in WordPress, add what you need: tags, images, etc.

Another advantage of this add-on is that it works in all browsers and connects both with sites as hosted on your own server .

To top off the joys, if you install the add-on from a user, it will be available to everyone you manage from your browser.

Other possible options publish from Google Docs to WordPress would be the following:

But I recommend the one we have seen here, not only is it very intuitive to use and is fully integrated both in Google Docs and WordPress but works in any browser and you do not need to install any plugins in WordPress .

Ea, to try it!

How to detect which plugins a web uses • WordPress Help

Know what plugins a web uses checking the source code

A more manual process, but also very effective – if you know how plugins are integrated in WordPress – is to check the source code of the web you are viewing, since most of them insert code in various parts of the resulting HTML.

All current browsers offer utilities to view the source code of a web, and in all you can right click on a page and choose the option to see the code of it.

And some also offer a web inspector that, In addition to showing the source code, they also offer tools to visualize, identify and modify elements such as scripts, resources or even CSS for testing.
