Are you a fan of Google Docs? Sure you are. It’s an amazing tool thanks to its easy collaboration and formatting features. However, it wasn’t that amazing if you wanted to import from Google Docs to WordPress until now because today you’ll learn how to import from Google Docs to WordPress
Most of us write articles using the WordPress editor or desktop editors like Open Live Writer, Blogo, Desk, or another. But, what do you do if you need to get an article from someone else? In my nine years of blogging, most users prefer sending articles (guest posts) using Google Docs or they send a usual .docx file. As a result, you need to spend time editing and importing it.
Install & Active Mammoth .docx converter Plugin
The very first thing you need to do is, install and activated the plugin. Just go to WordPress Dashboard > Plugins > Add New and search for “Mammoth”. Click on “Install Now” and “Activate” button. This plugin has no options panel. Once it’s active, you don’t need to change anything else.
Download Google Docs File (Import)
The next step is to download the Google Docs file as Microsoft Word (.docx). So, go to the Google Docs file and click on File. Download as Microsoft Word (.docx). As a result, the file will be downloaded on your computer.
Upload The Google Docs Content To WordPress Editor
Now it’s time to upload the file to WordPress. You will find a “Mammoth .docx converter” box under the WordPress Post Editor. Now you need to choose the .docx file that you want to upload to your WordPress Editor.
So, after uploading the file, you can see the ‘Visual’ and ‘Raw HTML’ version of the file. If it seems OK, so just click on the “Insert into the editor” button. It will take some time to process the file. Once it’s done, you can see the full Google docs file in the Post Editor. And most of the cases, it will keep the format as it was.
