What's this?


As a volunteer Page Editor for Experts-Exchange.com, I have noticed that many authors also have blogs, and pull articles from their blogs to post at Experts-Exchange. I appreciate each author sharing their blog content with our site members, and have developed this plugin to help them transition their articles from their Wordpress based blogs to Experts-Exchange.com's article system.

Get the Plugin!

Download Wordpress EE Articles Plugin

What it Does


The plugin translates your Wordpress based blog to text compatible with Experts-Exchange.com's article system's shortcode markup, which saves you the hassle of most of the reformatting of your article. It is extremely easy to use, just activate the plugin, and it will appear on your admin panel for pages and posts on the right hand side:

Holy usefulness, DrDamnit!

What a great idea.  I'm awed and jealous that I didn't think of it first.  +1 and thank you.
