Introduction to the Wordpress integration
Integrate GatherContent with WordPress. Using the integration you can:
- Migrate content from GatherContent to WordPress
- Update migrated content in WordPress
- Import content from WordPress to GatherContent
How does the integration work?
The plugin allows you to map each field in your GatherContent Templates with WordPress fields. This is accomplished by creating a Template Mapping. WordPress fields you can map to include title, 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 GatherContent.
The integration supports Wordpress 4.4 and at least PHP 5.3
Installing the GatherContent plugin
This is how you can go about installing the plugin:
Download the plugin
Download the plugin from Wordpress.org (3.1.8)
Install the plugin on your WordPress site
- Go to Plugins
- Select Add new and upload the GatherContent.zip file that was just downloaded.
You can also search fo the GatherContent 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 GatherContent 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 GatherContent connection.
- Select the GatherContent plugin from WordPress admin sidebar
- Enter your GatherContent account email address, your GatherContent platform URL subdomain (account slug), and an API key you generate from GatherContent. This information is case sensitive. For more information on how to get your API key, check out our guide here.
- 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 GatherContent 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 onto Step 2 of the integration, which is to setup your template mappings.
