WordPigeon is a WordPress plugin that allows you to import your word documents into WordPress much quicker and seamlessly. Quickly import the content from your cloud server and transform it into a WordPress post with a click from your mouse.
After you have properly installed WordPigeon, all your Google Doc files will appear on its virtual library, where it’s up to you to decide their fate as a post, draft or published piece.
Once you have selected it and hit “Import”, you will be able to fine tune it by formatting, adding media and tagging before hitting publish, when it reaches your dashboard, all you have to do publish it.
Wordpigeon also gives you the option to assign an author to that post and set all its tags and assign it a category, saving a great deal of time.
The text formatting that you do on Google Docs, that is, alignment, sections in bold or italic and embedded links are also retained, so you don’t have worry about disfiguring your beautiful article.
Word Pigeon also has a collaboration feature that allows multiple people to work on the same post, editing it simultaneously and leaving each other notes in order to get the job done in a quicker and smarter fashion.
It also significantly increases the security of your content since only people that you invite to edit your doc will have access to it.
Google Docs is also significantly easier to use, being a cloud version of Microsoft Office that automatically saves your alterations to its files, now you can bring all of its benefits to your WordPress.
