Publishing your content to WordPress

At Constant Content, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to purchase and publish high-quality, effective content. If you have a WordPress website or blog, we make this process even easier through the Constant Content Publisher plugin which lets you post any content you purchase directly to your site.

This article will explain exactly how to setup your WordPress account to work with Constant Content, so that publishing becomes quick and effortless. The process is straightforward and in this article we’ll cover:


 

Installing the content publisher

It’s easy to download and install our plugin and set it up with your Constant Content account.

  1. Download the Constant Content WordPress plugin here
  2. Install the plugin in your WordPress admin area; go to WordPress Admin > Plugins > Add New > Upload or follow the instructions from your WordPress hosting provider
  3. Visit the “Content publisherpage on Constant Content and create an entry for your site; you can add your website’s information by using the “Add site” button in the top right hand corner. You can link any number of WordPress sites
  4. Click the “Manage site” button next to your website’s information and copy the customer key and site key
  5. Go to your Constant Content publisher plugin on your WordPress installation, select “settings,” and add your customer key and site key
  6. Select if you want your content to “Auto post.” If you select this, posts will go live on your site as soon as you publish them from Constant Content. If you leave the box unchecked, your posts will be saved as drafts so you can make any changes before posting
  7. Your website is now linked to your Constant Content account.  Any content you purchase can be published directly from Constant Content to your site

If you have multiple sites you can repeat this process for each one and we’ll add them all to your Constant Content account. You can then choose which website you want to publish to.
