When you are typing up a blog post, where do you type it up first? In site content or do you use google docs (or something like that) first, and then copy and paste if over into the site content.

I have been typing up my blog posts in google docs, then I've been copying and pasting them over into site content when they are almost ready to be posted on to my website.

However, lately this has been causing me issues. For example, I am unable to use the editing options at the top of the page in site content.

I tried to make a 6th Header (as I had 6 headings, not 5) and I was unable to. I also tried to use the bullet/number indents and couldn't use those either.

However, if I type content strictly in site contents I don't have these issues.

Can anyone enlighten me?

Thanks,

Anna

Hi Anna... I have always used SiteContent first, then publish from there when done.

I then take care of the SEO aspects and then go to Search Console to get it indexed.

I also do a little bit of editing before the SEO and Search Console stuff. Everything seems to work great that way.

I had that same problem several months ago. With my PC, I copy and paste most often with my mouse. I have 2 options for pasting; Paste, or Paste as plain text. When I use the second option it removes the Formatting and am then able to do all I need to do in Site Content, then Publish and edit in WordPress.

Hi Anna, I prepare a draft on windows notepad, then copy paste to SiteContent and I add the headings manually. However, recently when trying to overwrite or correct a word on Site Content, the screen moves up and I can't read my text, and it's a bit more work to fix things. Cheers! Marisa

I a m also doing as you are doing it, but I sometimes also have up to 9 headings. I first copy and paste the already laid headings on my post change them to be as my headings on my google docs. Once my heading are ready and as I want them, I then copy and paste my content bellow each heading from my google docs to my prepared area on my post. I hope it will help.

I do not use the site content feature at all, because of the issues I had with it in the past. I write most of my content in Notion - because that is where I organize everything, and I don't have to go hunting for things - and then I copy and paste it into my site directly, and I format it there. Blessings!
