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?

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

  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 .

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The best thing is that, for example, if you insert images in the document it will not be published with links to them, but upload them to your c folder Word files automatically so you will not find differences from a normal publication.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

Get the most out of WordPress with IFTTT • WordPress Help

IFTTT is a web service used to automate processes such as tweeting, Facebook posts or saving and / or creating files in ] Google Drive (among other combinations). IFTTT means " If This Then That ", which translates as " yes this, then this ". This service works through " recipes " that, for example, allow, if there is a new item in an RSS feed, a link is tweeted with the title of the item.

Here are some ways to use IFTTT to empower WordPress. It should be noted that I will put the " recipes ", without explaining step by step at all. This system is not very difficult to use, that's why a common recipe is created:

Already registered or logged, click on " Create a Recipe ":

 ifttt1 "width =" 993 "height =" 228 "srcset =" 993w, https: // ayudawp. com / wp-content / uploads / 2015/03 / ifttt1-550x126.png 550w, 840w "sizes =" (max- width: 993px) 100vw, 993px "/> </a> </p>
<p> Click on" <em> this </em> "Here we will choose the service that will activate the" <em> recipe </em> ": [19659005] <a href=  ifttt1 "width =" 993 "height =" 228 "srcset =" 993w, https: // 550w, 840w "sizes =" ( max-width: 993px) 100vw, 993px "/> </a> <a href= ifttt2 "width =" 956 "height =" 258 "srcset =" 956w, /2015/03/ifttt2-550x148.png 550w, 840w "sizes =" (max-width: 956px) 100vw, 956px "/> </a> </p>
<p> Now we choose a service, for example, RSS Feed. And then, "<em> New feed item </em>". Then, for each new item in the feed, the action that we will define later will be made: </p>
<p> <a href=  ifttt3 "width =" 818 "height =" 374 "srcset =" /wp-content/uploads/2015/03/ifttt3.png 818w, 550w "sizes =" (max-width: 818px ) 100vw, 818px "/> </a> </p>
<p> Click on" <em> Create Trigger </em> ". Now we will define the action to be taken when the feed is updated. In my case, I choose to publish a tweet with link In my Twitter account, the WordPress Help posts are self-published along with the highlighted image, I did it with "<em> Post a tweet with image </em>". </p>
<p> <a href=  ifttt4 "width = "970" height = "533" srcset = " 970w, 03 / ifttt4-550x302.png 550w, 840w "sizes =" (max-width: 970px) 100vw, 970px "/> </a> </p>
<p> Now we can arm the tweet. In this case, you simply tweet the title of the post along with a link to it. </p>
<div id= ifttt5 "width =" 732 "height =" 469 "srcset =" 2015/03 / ifttt5.png 732w, 550w "sizes =" (max-width: 732px) 100vw, 732px "/> </a></p>
<p class= In the button on the top right, we can add "ingredients."

Now I give you some ideas of " Recipes ":

 ifttt6 "width =" 550 "height =" 159 "srcset =" 550w, wp-content / uploads / 2015/03 / ifttt6-840x242.png 840w, 970w "sizes =" (max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px "/> </a> </p>
<p> This has one drawback, that it is only possible to choose a blog. Also, I did not test if you can also with installations connected to Jetpack. </p>
<p> <a href=  ifttt7 "width =" 550 "height =" 133 "srcset =" uploads / 2015/03 / ifttt7-550x133.png 550w, 840w, uploads / 2015/03 / ifttt7.png 966w "sizes =" (max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px "/> </a> </p>
<p> <a href=  ifttt8" width = "550" height = "153" srcset = " 550w, ifttt8-840x234.png 840w, 973w "sizes =" (max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px "/> </a> [19659005] </p>
<p> I do not know who can help you. But this recipe creates a document for each new post. </p>
<p> <a href=  ifttt9 "width =" 550 "height =" 188 "srcset =" /03/ifttt9-550x188.png 550w, 840w, /03/ifttt9.png 963w "sizes =" (max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px "/> </a> </p>
<p> Well, as you can see, the only limit is the imagination, given the large amount of combinations available Experimenting we can find very diverse uses We could, it occurs to me, publish a tweet for each new topic in the forum, or maybe add a post for each new image on Instagram for example. </p>
