Easily move posts from Google Docs to WordPress
Fortunately there are very helpful users in the plugin forum which allowed me to get this working!
This plug in leaves me with my jaw on the floor. I am the web editor of a university newspaper, and currently I have to manually copy-and-paste the articles from InDesign to separate WordPress posts. With this plug in we can easily rework our workflow, since our university has google apps, so that the manual labor is reduced to a minimum, and authors are able to get real-time feedback and editing on their articles! Fantastic.
I am running 3.8.1, but not multisite, and it is working fine. For those that are having trouble, the Installation log fails to note that you must define a third variable, the google docs folder ID, for it to know where to pull from. The ID is the string after "&authuser=0#folders/", and it should be defined as DOCSTOWP_ORIGIN. The creator of the plugin mentions this here.
Instructions make sense if careful to follow orders.
No GUI, but started automatically once I edited text files on server. Starting script by adding simple variables is well-done here, and as understandable as copy-paste.
Plugin has room to grow if developer insights' continue to concentrate on ways to mirror and migrate between Google Docs et al web services to user-controlled content management systems like WordPress here, without a challenge, ...and maybe futurewise with GUI config, for greater usage?
Because of this plugin, our small weekly newspaper was able to migrate to Google Docs and shift to a web-first mentality. Thank you
