When I want to publish a new article, do I need to publish through Site Content alone or I can simply add a new post from my wordpress backend? Is there a difference in this? Or publishing through Site Content is the same as adding a new post through the wordpress backend?

Yes it is the same, but sitecontent makes it a little bit easier.

Hi - whichever you are most comfortable with. Some members prefer Site Content because it has a spelling and grammar checker, and keeps a record of your stats. It also lets you know when your post is indexed.

However, you can't make any changes. All editing has to be done through WordPress.

You can choose which you prefer.

SiteContent provides a lot of useful features, but once posted to your website, you can edit the page/post from the WordPress Admin (Backend)

You can also create content directly through your WordPress backend (WP Admin), but it will not appear under SiteContent.

Thanks for the quick response Chrystopher. I actually published an article through WordPress which isn't showing on my Site Content list of published articles. Is there a downside to this or it doesn't really affect anything?

It won't affect your website or search engine rankings etc

There is no bidirectional syncronisation between the two methods.

Personally, I use SiteContent to create the initial article and to locate images I'd like to use, then i Publish it to my site, followed by editing it in WP.

I've been using WP for hundreds of years though, I'm new to WA, and WordPress is the best CMS tool out there. SiteContent here just adds a little extra help with the initial creation, plus it keeps track of article count, word count and you can set targets to aim for etc.

Nice little extras, but I believe Kyle & Carson are currently working on SiteContent 2.0, which will add even more features.

It comes down to preference really :-)
