Introduction to the WordPress integration

Integrate Content Workflow with WordPress. Using the integration you can:

  • Migrate content from Content Workflow to WordPress

  • Update migrated content in WordPress

  • Import content from WordPress to Content Workflow

How does the integration work?

The plugin allows you to map each field in your Content Workflow Templates with WordPress fields. This is accomplished by creating a Template Mapping. WordPress fields you can map to include titles, body content, custom fields, tags, categories, Yoast fields, advanced custom fields, featured images and many more.

The integration was produced and is maintained by Zao, in partnership with Content Workflow.

Versions supported

The integration supports WordPress 4.4 and at least PHP 5.3

Installing the Content Workflow plugin

This is how you can go about installing the plugin:

Download the plugin

Download the plugin from (3.1.8)

Install the plugin on your WordPress site

  1. Go to Plugins

  2. Select Add new and upload the Content file that was just downloaded.

You can also search for the Content Workflow plugin by clicking Add New from the WordPress plugins area of your dashboard.

Configuring the plugin

Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin, you’ll see a Content Workflow link on the left sidebar in the WordPress admin. In order to begin using the plugin, you will need to configure the settings for the Content Workflow connection.

  1. Select the Content Workflow plugin from the WordPress admin sidebar

  2. Enter your Content Workflow account email address, your Content Workflow platform URL subdomain (account slug), and an API key you generate from Content Workflow. This information is case-sensitive. For more information on how to get your API key, check out our guide here.

  3. Save your changes and once successfully authenticated, you will see a “Hello” welcome message at the top of the settings screen, stating you’ve successfully connected with your Content Workflow account.

What if my website is password-protected?

When you have HTTP authentication enabled for your WordPress site, you'll need to ensure that you complete the HTTP Authentication Credentials section by adding the username and password details. This will allow the plugin to bypass the password and import content.

Once you’ve successfully entered your credentials you can move on to Step 2 of the integration, which is to set up your template mappings.
