Submit Your Articles Directly from WordPress

With the introduction of our new EzineArticles WordPress Plugin, experienced WordPress users will be able to submit their WordPress posts and blog entries right to EzineArticles.com!

Over the years, we’ve recommended that one of the best ways to increase your article count was to repurpose your existing content, like blog posts and other materials, into articles. Trouble is, there’s never been an easy way to do that … until now.

The EzineArticles WordPress Plugin* will provide the ability to simultaneously publish new posts to the web and submit them as articles to EzineArticles.com. Not only that, it allows any existing posts to be selectively submitted as articles without ever leaving WordPress.

Another great feature of this plugin is the useful ability to monitor the review status of newly submitted articles right from the WordPress administrative interface.

We’re looking for intermediate and advanced WordPress webmasters to give this plugin a try and tell us how we can improve it.

Accessing the EzineArticles WordPress Plugin

  1. Log in to your EzineArticles member interface.
  2. Hover over the “Author Tools” drop-down menu and click on “WordPress Plugin”.
  3. Follow the step-by-step instructions for installing and activating the plugin.

Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin, all you’ll need to do is click on the “Publish Post on EzineArticles” checkbox and then click “Publish” or “Update” to simultaneously publish your post AND submit it as an article to EzineArticles.com.

So if you’re an experienced WordPress user, go download, install and activate the plugin right now. Then take it for a test drive to see how it works. If you have any questions, stop back and leave a comment and we’ll try to help.

UPDATED March 29th 2010 at 9pm CST:
An updated EzineArticles WordPress Plugin is available for your use!
(You will need to download and install the latest version from your Author Tools area)

The new features of this plugin include:

    Resource Box Options – You can use the default resource box configured on your account or customize one.

    Article Guideline Acceptance – You can verify if your article will pass our guidelines before submitting.

    Blog Post/Article Content Flexibility – You now have the ability to make changes to your blog post without those changes reflected on your WordPress post.

*EzineArticles WordPress Plugin requires WordPress Version 2.7 or higher and PHP Version 5.1 or higher. Note: This new tool is for intermediate to advanced WordPress users only.

What a great idea! When you simultaneously submit a post as an article are links made inactive? One reason for rewriting a post is to remove product links from the article body.

Deb,

Whatever you are submitting in your blog post, will be mirrored in your submission to EzineArticles. So if you have active links in your blog post they will remain active when it is sent to EzineArticles.

I like to add a custom LAST paragraph to my blog posts before I would post them to EzineArticles.com . With this plugin, is it possible to edit the EzineArticles post before I push the POST button?
thanks

Soram,

Not at this time. The post you publish in WordPress will be submitted to EzineArticles as is.

This is a great idea – sort of like the plugins that automatically “tweet” on posting – but better.

My biggest concern are the rules you have to keep order with thousands of authors. I’m going to explore this though.

Nicola,

Do you know what version of PHP you have on your server?

Command Line: php -v

Otherwise if you can put a new .php page on your site and inside of it enter this: < ?php phpinfo(); ?>

…then visit that page from your web browser and look for the version of PHP you are using so we can better diagnose.

[Reply]

Nicola,

We have updated the EzineArticles WordPress Plugin which may address the issue you were having.

You will need to re-download the updated plugin from your members area and install it.

Please let us know if this corrects the error you had received.

Using PHP version 4.3.11

[Reply]

Nicola,

The EzineArticles WordPress Plugin requires PHP version 5.1 or higher.

We are currently evaluating the possibility of releasing another version that would be compatible with PHP version 4.3, no ETA if or when that will take place.

Is upgrading PHP to version 5.1 a possibility?

[Reply]

Nicola writes:

According to GoDaddy

Support for PHP 5
With PHP 5 support, you can program using the latest version of this server-side scripting language and take advantage of existing applications and add ons written in PHP 5. You can also run both PHP 4 and PHP 5 simultaneously on the same site.

But I have implemented the change so that PHP5 is the default. This could take up to 24 hours

I will let you know if this fixes the problem – thanks

5 “easy” questions…

1) Where do we put the all important resource box?

2) Does 1 API key cover multiple blogs?

3) If we schedule a post in WordPress, is it submitted to EzineArticles at the point it is scheduled or when it goes live?

4) Is there any feedback if the submission infringes any of the automated rules, for example going above 2% on a keyword? Just worried about suddenly getting rejections!

5) If we use a suggested title, is this removed from the list or is that a separate job?

Once I know what to do with the resource box I’ve a couple of articles ready to test with. Looking like a fantastic tool! Well done on this one.

Keith,

1) The default Resource Box you have setup in your EzineArticles Member settings will be used. A future release may include the option to use any one of your saved resource box options.

2) Yes, 1 API key can be used for multiple blogs.

3) If you schedule a post in WordPress it will not be sent to EzineArticles at all right now. Scheduling is a Premium feature (http://ezinearticles.com/premium/) We may add the ability for this in the future.

4) Yes, we will return details on why the article would not be accepted if it triggered any of our submissions checks.

5) Yes, if you use a suggested title it will be removed from the list upon submission of the article.

[Reply]

Hello,

My first reaction was WaHoo! But now I have questions or see issues that could be potential snags.

1. I don’t worry about keyword overuse in my own posts. Sounds like I’m going to be getting lots of articles kicked back to me for editing. (That’s why I re-write for EzineArticles.)

2. A live link in the body of my article will also be a live link in my EzineArticles article body. Sounds like I’m going to be getting lots of articles back for editing.

3. If you will use only one saved or default resource box, that means I can only promote one product or site. Or, is that per category?

4. Since I often put a “resource box” or resource near the end of my articles, I would then have two resource boxes and sounds like I’m going to be getting lots of articles back for editing.

Are my guesses correct?

Thanks for your response. Appreciated! And keep up the great work!

Kathryn

[Reply]

Unfortunately, if you write different for your blog than you do in articles, (in your examples) your articles will run into some problems and this tool will not work to your benefit.

We are working on the default resource box issue which will allow the use of more than just the default one.

I would recommend reserving this tool for your blog writings that need no changes. It may not be for everyone.

Hanifa K.Cook writes:

I totally agree with the questions brought up by Kathryn.

With regards to links within our content, I suppose we have manually edit from our EzineArticles author’s page directly. Is that so?

It is a great tool nonetheless.

Ray writes:

Maybe I don’t really understand the duplicate content rule, or maybe it works differently where blog posts are concerned, but if a blog post is published and then the same content is submitted as an article, wouldn’t that be considered duplicate content? I have made a conscious effort to avoid submitting any material I already have posted on other sites for this exact reason. Was I wrong to do so? And, if so, how exactly does the duplicate content rule work, because I don’t see how you can differentiate between what’s duplicate content on one’s own site as opposed to somebody else’s? Obviously, I’m confused, even if nobody else is!

So, does “repurpose”, in EzineArticles speak, just mean “submit”? I thought it meant rewrite or something similar.

Thanks for the clarification,
Ray

Comment provided March 25, 2010 at 2:18 PM

[Reply]

Ray,

The problem lies in taking someone’s content as your own. This would include PLR articles as you don’t have exclusive rights to the content. ie. Joe’s articles contain the same content as Karen’s while neither of them have exclusive rights to it. This is duplicate content and is not acceptable.

You can repurpose your content if you own it. ie. Use it on your blog and submit it in an article. Go here for more info on this: http://blog.EzineArticles.com/2009/10/repackaging-articles-is-not-derivative-content.html

Comment provided March 25, 2010 at 3:21 PM

[Reply]

Vonzel,
Here are a couple of suggestions that you could try. I would recommend only doing one of them at a time as to not make too many changes all at once.

1) Make sure your blog is working properly before attempting to install the plugin.

2) Make sure you are not exceeding the disk space available to you from your webhost.

3) Download the plugin again from your Author Tools menu and attempt to install it again.

4) Comment out the following line in your php.ini file:

mbstring.func_overload = X

…by adding a ; at the beginning of the line
ex:

;mbstring.func_overload = X

If none of these work, can you share the version of WordPress you are using?

I love the new WordPress plug-in…I just tried it and it works great. However, when writing on my blog I use links to my website internal pages as well as affiliate programs, which conflict with your rules since I do this above the fold.

What would be great is if I could post like I normally do then do a separate post for EzineArticles only. That way, I can quickly take out all links and conform to your rules. I like the idea of doing everything within my WordPress admin area.

This would be ideal because I use affiliate links and links above the fold in my blog posts. This is in violation of EzineArticles rules. Again, if I could update my regular blog post to conform to EzineArticles rules and then submit separately while in my WordPress admin that would be ideal.

Here are my concerns:

1. The one everybody has stated. Our own blogs use contextual links for our benefit. We cannot do this in the articles we submit to EzineArticles. So this would have to be a 2 step process – we publish, and then go edit our article so it follows EzineArticles rules.

2. If I understand how Google handles duplicate content, they may index the higher authority website if 2 are found. Our blog should get published first, so maybe it will be ok – or there will be enough variation on the page, so they will both get indexed (FTW). discuss?

Once the “modify / update” feature is available in the plugin, so that the content can be tweaked to satisfy EzineArticles.com rules, this will no doubt be a great tool for bloggers like me. I write so many blog posts on multiple blogs, but fail to re-purpose it on EzineArticles. I look forward to the enhancements.

Please be certain you are running the most recent version of the EzineArticles WordPress Plugin which can be found by clicking on your “Plugins” menu item in your WordPress Admin interface..

The version should be: Version 1.5.2

If you are running the most recent version be sure that you have filled in the Summary section located between “Resource Box” and “Keywords”.

By default the summary will use the first 2 sentences. If you wish to change this click on the “edit” button where you can choose to use the Excerpt rather than the first 2 sentences.

Comment provided March 31, 2010 at 1:39 PM

[Reply]

Lissie,

Some thoughts to consider:

You’re assuming your content on your website will get discovered and delivered MORE traffic WITHOUT US vs. WITH US.

Also, all “authority” is not created equal. While we may have a higher PR than you and an older domain age, your site may be more tightly niched focus and therefore, MORE VALUABLE than EzineArticles’s broad range of no specific niche.

This issue isn’t as black & white as your rhetorical question suggests.

If you’re only here to get your content discovered by the search engines and TRAFFIC from us and those who syndicate from EzineArticles is not worth much to you… then I agree. You should not submit to EzineArticles.com as our purpose and your needs would be out of alignment.

Hope this helps. :)

Please confirm your API key and login credentials are accurate by going to the EzineArticles Menu on the left navigation of your screen. Click on “Account”. If your credentials are correct you will see your account status and Author Names here.

If you do not see your information under “Account, your API key and login information can be found on the EzineArticles Menu under “Options” where you can update them.

Guy writes:

Thanks for the reply. I double checked everything. The user name and API key seem ok. On the “Account” tab, the plug-in shows my author info correctly.

The option to submit to EzineArticles looks ok on the post page as well. It shows my name and author signatures (although it’s not pulling the updated signature info that I created today).

Everything looks fine. It just doesn’t submit anything. I can change the category and edit the signature box. It just doesn’t do anything other than temporarily change the color of the “update” and “submit” buttons when I try to submit.

In short, it’s still not working even after confirming login and API settings.

What could be the reason and how to solve this issue?

Thanks

Raj,

Can you confirm you are using PHP version 5.1 or higher?

You may also want to try updating the plugin as a new version was released last night which fixes several known issues.

Hi Chris,

When I brought the above issue to your notice, that was when I had downloaded and installed the plugin for the first time. So, I believe it must be the latest version. The plugin version that is installed at my blog is 1.6

I am hosting with HostGator and the PHP version at my blog where I am trying to install this plugin, http://www.theassociatereference.com, is v5.2.12

So, what do you think could be the problem?

Raj

I’m having the ‘shoved to the right’ problem. Looks like a CSS issue to me. Here are the specs for my blogs:

ISP – hostgator
Wordpress – 2.9.2
PHP – 5.2.4
OS – Linux CentOS

This plugin will be a fantastic resource, once it has the bugs hammered out.

I also tried reverting my theme to wordpress basic in case the problem was caused by the theme, but got the same results as before.

I submitted an article using the plugin today and it seems to be cutting off the resource box after a certain character length. I ended up having to edit it directly on EzineArticles because the links in my default resource box were not included.

Emma,

This has been corrected in the latest release: 1.6.5

Hi,

This is the first time I am trying to use the plugin but after entering the API key, username and password,
I just can’t connect. The error message is below when I click on Options:

———-

Could not connect to EzineArticles.com

Please verify your EzineArticles API Key, Username and Password are correct.

Anyone mention about such a problem before?

Regards,

Andrew,

This is generally a case where your email address and/or password were entered incorrectly. It may also be that your API key was entered incorrectly.

* Your email address and password must match exactly as they are in your EzineArticles Membership Account.

After “successfully” installing WP EzineArticles plugin (Version 1.6.5) on WordPress 2.9.2, PHP Version 5.2.8 — and without even attempting to actually use this plugin with EzineArticles — I have discovered the following anomaly ???

[1] With this plugin activated, I CANNOT use any of the Upload/Insert icon/functions in Page/Post create/edit screens.

In other words, with this plugin activated, I CANNOT use WordPress functionality to insert images into my pages and posts, neither from original create, nor afterward in edit mode.

[2] Deactivating your plugin restores this standard WordPress functionality. In fact, the Activate/Deactivate mode on your plugin acts as a toggle for this functionality.

Please, advise.

Best Regards,

All,

I want you to know that we have heard each and every one of your concerns with this plug-in.

This week we are addressing those concerns which will be released in version 2.0 of the plugin.

I assure you, the new version will address many, if not all of the unexpected challenges we’ve encountered.

For those reasons I am closing the comments for this entry so my team and I can dedicate our time to making this feature work for you. I’ll re-open with the launch of 2.0 soon.

If you haven’t downloaded this plugin yet, login to your EzineArticles Members Account and go to “Author Tools” -> “WordPress Plugin”

** Note: This Plugin is not compatible with WordPress MU
