WordPress Crosspost

WordPress Crosspost cross-posts content from your self-hosted WordPress blogs to your WordPress.com sites. Updates are crossposted, too.

WordPress Crosspost posts to your WordPress.com (or self-hosted JetPack-enabled) blog of your choice whenever you hit the "Publish" (or "Save Draft") button. It can import your reblogs and other posts on WordPress.com. It even downloads the media attachments in your WordPress.com posts and saves them in your self-hosted WordPress Media Library.

Transform your self-hosted WordPress website into a back-end for your WordPress.com-hosted website. Create original posts on your local computer, but publish them to WordPress.com. Import your WordPress.com reblogs. Always have a portable copy (a running copy) of your entire WordPress.com blog.

This plugin uses WordPress.com's REST API to keep posts in sync; when you edit your WordPress post, it updates your crossposted post. Private WordPress posts stay private on the remote site, deleting a post from WordPress that you've previously cross-posted deletes it from the remote site, too, and so on. Scheduling a WordPress post to be published any time in the future will add it to the remote site's future publication schedule, too. See the Other Notes page for a complete listing of features.

WP-Crosspost is very lightweight. It just requires you to connect to your WordPress.com account from the plugin options screen. After that, you're ready to cross-post!

Other options and features enable tweaking additional metadata from your WordPress entry (notably categories and tags) to the remote site, switching comments and pingbacks on or off, and more.

WP-Crosspost transforms your self-hosted WordPress website into a back-end for your WordPress.com-hosted website. Create your posts locally on your own computer's WordPress, but publish to WordPress.com's servers. This means you'll always have a portable copy of your entire blog, and you can stop worrying about whether your backups are up to date. Create new content locally, then move them to the server automatically, instead of the other way around!

Servers no longer serve, they possess. We should call them possessors.
