Blogely has many integrations on the Roadmap. At this moment, we have full integration with WordPress, which has a sizable market share – 85% of all blog posts are residing in WordPress.
There are quite a few CMS platforms that are pending for integration. In the meantime, publishing the article is possible with the use of HTML export.
There is also another reason for this workaround. Not all CMS platforms have API capable (or allowed) to use posting of articles. In such a case, HTML export is the next best solution.
In addition, we discussed the simplicity of inserting data tables (Excel or Google sheet) into articles.
Non-integrated site set up
Publishing for non-integrated sites is a workaround using HTML export. First, the site must be connected in Settings.
Here are the steps to complete this process.
1. Connect your website (non-integrated) in Settings/Integrations
2. In the pop-up specify the domain name you want for publishing.
3. Review connected site
Publishing on non-integrated site
To publish an article on a non-integrated site follow these steps:
1. Inside the article click on the “Publish” button
2. Select the “Other” option
3. Select site and enter details
4. Review and submit.
Easy data tables
Many of us know how tricky it is to insert simple data tables into WordPress. You search for plugins, shortcodes., trying to embed iframes…
We have found and added a simple solution for tables: just copy the excel or Google sheet table and paste it. You just need to paste it in the spacing popup window for embeds.
Here is an example of inserted table:
|Segment||Country||Product||Units Sold||Manufacturing Price||Sale Price|
