Brings the power of Storify, the popular social media storytelling platform to your WordPress site

How do I add a Storify Story to a post?

There are three ways:

  1. To create and publish a new story, simply click the Storify menu icon on the left side of your WordPress dashboard
  2. To add an existing story from your account, while editing or creating a post, click the Storify icon in the rich editor toolbar (the same toolbar where you select bold, italic, etc.), and select the story from your account you'd like to insert
  3. You can always add any existing story to a post, simply by including the story's full link on it's own line, e.g., https://storify.com/username/story-title

Do I need a Storify account to use this plugin?

You'll need a Storify account to use all of the plugin's features. If you don't already have an account you can sign up now using your Facebook or Twitter account, otherwise, you will be prompted to create an account prior to publishing your first story.

I am a developer, can I customize the functionality of the plugin?

Yes. There are more than 20 API endpoints for developers to hook into using WordPress's standard add_action() and add_filter() architecture. Each is individually documented within the code itself, but virtually all the plugin's functionality can be customized to fit your needs.

Can I extend the plugin's functionality or integrate it with my own, existing plugin?

Yes. There are several public methods available to help developers quickly and easily leverage the Storify API such as get_story() and get_user_data(). Each is documented more thoroughly within the code itself, and can be called, for example, as $WP_Storify->get_story( 'https://storify.com/url-to/a-story' ); to return a story object containing the story's embed code and associated metadata.

Are requests to the Storify API cached at all?

Yes. All requests to the Storify API (for user and story metadata) are cached using the standard WordPress transients API. By default, this will cache the requests to the database for up to an hour, but can be customized and extended through many popular caching plugins such as W3 Total Cache. There is also an API hook to modify the default TTL (storify_ttl);

Is the Storify plugin available in my language?

Yes and no. The Storify plugin is ready to be translated, but has not been translated yet. If you would like to translate the Storify plugin into your language, see the Translating WordPress Page.
