Does anyone know how to import an article from Google Docs into WordPress to maintain the original formatting? I have a guest post I need to import.

Thanks to those who answered. I found that if I copied the Google Doc and pasted it into WordPress while using the Block editor, everything is retained perfectly. I then switched to the old editor and it is still all good.

You are very fortunate to have discovered that because WordPress recommends staying with either the Block Editor or the Classic Editor and not switching back and forth all of the time.

Ooops, oh well it worked so now I know how to use Google Docs with WordPress.

Jay Neil uses this approach in writing hs WordPress Blogs. I believe he just copies and pastes it into WordPress. And that seems to maintain the formatting.

Have you tried that approach yet?

Hope this helps.

Hey Curtis,

Google searching your question, I was provided with an answer that may interest you. See screen print below...

Personally, I use my own computer software copy of Word to write my posts in and then simply copy and paste into WordPress editor once my post is ready to add to my website.

Hope you find this helpful.

Great info,

Thank you 👍

I'm not sure what sort of formatting you have, but for me I do a select all, then copy in Docs then I paste it into word press. My list and heading formats stay the same. I don't know if it makes any difference but I use the block editor.

Hope it helps

I tried that and lost all my formatting.

Do you use classic or block editor?

Works as long as you use Block editor and then can switch back to classic and all is good. Thanks!

Very welcome. I'm a fan of the block editor.

Core “Business Start Up” Training

Why don't starter members have access to site support?

good question worth asking.In the training you are given for free is so much. unless you are looking for some quick money you had better progress in learning then good revenue is on its way that i dont see in any other place.they pitch so well then nothing here you have it all for one good week.then you want more you kindly upgrade .

Thats one of the many benefits of Premium Membership Level along with many others to numerous to mention in a post.

Interesting question. I thought they did. Jim

Great information

I think, because during that first starter week, there is the training to follow and for the most part, they should be following it., There are lots of training and every one of them offers comments, so any confusion or queries can be aired there. Also, I think that if this is the case and starter members cannot access site support, it might be a reason that they would be asking all sorts of basic questions that can be answered more easily by premium members themselves.

Several people have recently asked about adding an Affiliate Disclosure. Even though this is covered in the OEC training, some here have decided to go straight to the Affiliate

Thanks for this Curtis.
Stay safe
Gaz

You are very welcome Gaz.

Well said, Curtis.

Wilson

Thank you Wilson.

I thought an MMO didn't need an affiliate disclosure statement.

If you are going to be an affiliate marketer and add affiliate links to your site, you need it.

Yes, on your niche website, but I don't believe it is necessary if your site is promoting Wealthy Affiliate or other affiliate programs, such as Fiverr, Jaaxy, iWriter, etc.
I could be wrong but when I first started ABT, I remember Kyle saying it wasn't necessary to have one.


Barbara

If you are an affiliate for anything, you need one. Feel free to check with Kyle and he will tell you the same thing.

Thank you Curtis.

Very helpful, thank you for sharing.
Alketa

Glad to help.

Very true, Curtis! This is vital!

Jeff

Thank Jeffrey.

You're welcome!

The training in the OEC is out of date by quite a bit. A lot of new people are getting frustrated because they try to do what the training says but can't because it is not corr

Here is the answer from people in the know:

The good news is yes, a full revamp of the OEC and all training is very much on the way and it will be a lot easier for everyone.

It should be in the May/June timeframe.

Will the Bootcamp also be updated?

Great to hear this! Thanks for finding it out for us Chender! I've wondered the same thing a few times as some of the features of the platform and Wordpress have changed so if you are not tech-savvy it can be a hassle to find the correct places.

Thanks, Jukka, I hope you are doing well.

That is a very good question. Did Kyle chime in on this because I thought he mentioned something about updated training coming in 2020?

Yes, updates are coming within the next few months or sooner.

Maybe there are trainings that belong to the evergreen and there are not.

There is training for everything related to affiliate marketing, it is just out of date. Evergreen is part of it.

Good to know there is a revamp. Important to have timely updates as well. 👍 Marc.

Yes, Marc and they are really overdue.

Nothing wrong with that Dave. I am always working on my list building.

However my blog is centred on list building and blog promotion strategies...

HI 2 you, funny enough I had only finished a blog here at Wealthy Affiliate recently about this sort of thing during the global state of affairs. I have promoted how much time I'm now getting away from the office at work to work on my website and content. Read the blog here.

Yes, I read that earlier.

Yes, I am putting in more work in WA and on my businesses.

It is worth a shot for sure.

I believe so Curtis and if nothing else perhaps the seed is planted.

Mel

That is my hope. Still trying to get to Vegas next year.

Best wishes on Vegas!
