SCS YouTube Auto Poster


Using this plugin you can manually or automatically (using WPcron job) make WordPress YouTube embedded posts which automatically adds:
* YouTube video title as post title
* YouTube video tags as post tags
* YouTube video thumbnail as post featured image if theme supports it


  • Easy settings: You just need a free Google developer api key and the YouTube channel id
  • Choose the number of created posts at once. Get up to 50 videos at once, if you need more use the before and after date of the video
  • Choose post settings: post status, post author, post category, post publish date (when post is made or when it was published on YouTube)

Use shortcodes to customize post content
[scs_ytap_video-title] eg: Frontend Developer vs Backend Developer – What Should You Learn? (Funducational)
[scs_ytap_video-id] eg: yBA7lOu4W8Q
[scs_ytap_video-embed] eg: [embed][/embed]
