  • 1. „Storify‟ to WPHow to publish your „Storify‟article to your WordPress blogif the export features or theStorify plugin get buggy.Screenshots, mostly.Copyright © 2103 by Kaley PerkinsAll rights reserved.
  • 2. Word on bugs A few pages of notes of explanation and tipsbefore the how-to screenshots: Coders write in various coding languages formultiple devices, multiple browsers, and multiplethemes. Coding is not static. Thing are bound tohave bugs; sometimes you have to troubleshoot. This is written for the Balskan WordPress themeused on Mozilla‟s Firefox browser using Storify‟s freeversion.Copyright © 2103 by Kaley Perkins2 May 13, 2013
  • 3. Storify and WordPress Storify is a user-friendly, web-basedsolution that allows easy news andfeature aggregation of web content. WordPress is a robust blogging andwebsite platform. It is well supported andhas many third-party plugins to makeblogging and online communitymanagement convenient.Copyright © 2103 by Kaley Perkins3 May 13, 2013
  • 4. How this came to be: Storify and WordPress have built-in and add-onfeatures that allow streamlined merging onStorify‟s element board and WordPresspublication. For me both were buggy. Storify provides a „distribution‟ option that shouldpush your stories to WordPress. It was notdependable for me. The „Storify‟ plugin nests inside WP and allows theuser to create aggregated stories with the Storifyelement panel. I saved my draft in WordPress andmy article disappeared.Copyright © 2103 by Kaley Perkins4 May 13, 2013
  • 5. Some more thoughts After „losing‟ my article, I was delighted to find it safe inStorify. I completed my edits there. I needed to publish my article onto my WordPress blog. Thedistribution panel simply did nothing. I refreshed mybrowser. I tried a different browser. I restarted mycomputer. I got cranky and hit Google with a vengeance. This provides a work-around workflow to get your Storifystories published to your WordPress blog if neither Storify‟sbuilt-in „distribution‟ option nor Storify‟s plugin worksuccessfully.Copyright © 2103 by Kaley Perkins5 May 13, 2013
  • 6. ALWAYS REMEMBER: Save your work frequently. Perform all your edits before you use thisworkflow. It works, but it has friction. If you need to edit after you have publishedusing this workflow, do so in Storify and thenPublish again. Content will update on yourwebsite automatically.Copyright © 2103 by Kaley Perkins6 May 13, 2013
