Syncing Blogs and Pages from WordPress as secondary source
From v4.1.7 of our WordPress Plugin you have the ability to sync pages, posts and other blog content to any Clerk store.
Since a store in Clerk.io is primarily connected to your e-commerce platform in order to share information on catalogs, orders and customers, it can be challenging to keep your blogging content in sync with Clerk if it is not managed on that platform.
Because of this, we now provide a no-code solution for keeping this content in sync with any Clerk store regardless of primary platform, if you manage your blogs through WordPress/WooCommerce.
In order to use the feature, simply install our plugin on your WordPress site. In the module settings you should then configure your API keys, taken from the store in my.clerk.io you wish to sync your content with.
Since we only want to import written content in this case, you should only need to enable
Use Real-time Updates in the
Data Sync: Pages section.
After saving the settings you will see a button to the right of the checkbox, with the text
Sync Pages. You can press this to immediately push all the pages to the my.clerk.io store.
You can also enter additional attributes you wish to retrieve for the pages in question, as well as the inclusion of custom page types you may have created using third party plugins.
You should only need to press the
Sync Pages button once, as any change to a page, publication of a new page, archival or deletion of one will be caught by our plugin and updated in the my.clerk.io store automatically.
If you wish to ensure that no pages are pulled from any other source during the nightly sync for the store, we also recommend turning the full sync for pages off in my.clerk.io.
This can be done in
System Status -> Data Sync, by turning
Import Pages off.
