Which elements can contain the InDesign article to be exported?

- Tagged text frames
- Tagged rectangles frames with an image placed in it.
- Groups of two elements, a rectangle frame tagged as image and a text frame tagged as caption. These elements will be exported as an image with its corresponding caption.
- Groups of more than two elements. They will be converted into an image. This is the way to export vector graphics created in InDesign.

Groups must be first created and then added to the article.

Why aren't some elements exported?

- Check that the elements has been added to the article.
- Check that the element currently selected in the layout is part of the article.
- Check that only one element of the article is tagged as title.

Which specific tags should I use?

title for the title or post name
text for the main text
image for images
caption for captions
summary for summaries

The rest of the elements of an article (subtitles, etc.) can have any tag. They will be exported at the end of the main text, depending on the option selected in the ID Extra Tags combo box.

Any image must be grouped with its corresponding caption.

How are WP custom fields set up in iziExport?

In User Fields area, in the first column, enter the name of the WP custom field. In the second column, enter the text to export. Fields defined will be exported in each export.

What happens if the text frame tagged as title has multiple typographies?

iziExport will export the text with the biggest font size with the tag title. The rest of the text will be exported with the tag extratitle and placed at the end of the main text into WordPress.

Can't you export the caption?

- Tag the image as image and text as caption.
- Group.
- Add the group to the article.

Can I export WP categories and tags?

Yes. If your WordPress site takes advantage of metadata, before exporting the article, you'll want to fill out the WP Categories and Tags sections of the iziExport panel. The WP Categories section displays the categories that iziExport retrieved from your WordPress site, so select the ones you want to export. In the WP tags section you can add any tag to export to WordPress.
