WP Sync is a simple plugin that helps you to import Google Spreadsheet rows into WP posts. This plugin is useful for example if you want to import lot of rows from a spreadsheet into separate posts and it is intended to be used for those who need a simple way to enter blog posts and don't like to use the Quick Post feature at WordPress.

Instead, you can just write your post drafts into a spreadsheet and configure the plugin to synchronize your rows with WordPress.

I coded this plugin for my personal use but after getting some user's feedback I decided to publish it on the WP plugin's directory. You can use this plugin to import a Google Spreadsheet as individual blog posts. The plugin also will help you to import custom post types for example if you are preparing a business directory or event website.

What you can expect from this plugin:

  • Helps you importing rows from a Google Spreadsheet into individual posts in WordPress.
  • Use the Google Spreadsheet to enter ideas and post drafts, for example if you are developing domain names with WordPress or niche websites, but also useful for directories (ie: with local info, phone numbers, custom fields, etc.)
  • Import spreadsheet rows as individual posts or custom post types.
  • Support custom fields and taxonomies (categories, tags, etc.)

What you shouldn't expect from this plugin (at least in the initial releases):

  • In the initial version the utility works from Google Spreadsheets into WordPress but not viceversa. We'll eventually add the opposite direction soon.
  • This version doesn't writes back any change on the Google Spreadsheet so the Spreadsheet is only used as read only.
  • Google Spreadsheets doesn't support rich text format, so if you need HTML for your content you can do that by using HTML tags in the cells
