iziExport is an Adobe InDesign Add-on that allows you to export tagged InDesign documents to WordPress.
The price of iziExport is $69.95. There is also a trial version fully functional, only limited by the amount of exports.
iziExport works on InDesign CC versions (InDesign CC, CC2014, CC2015, CC2017 and CC2018).
Step 1. Make sure you have installed the Creative Cloud Desktop App. Add-ons require the Creative Cloud Desktop App and at least one compatible Adobe application to be installed. If you have not already installed the Creative Cloud Desktop App you can get it from https://creative.adobe.com/products/creative-cloud
Step 2. Adquire the iziExport Add-on here:
Step 3. Creative Cloud Desktop App automatically sync/download and install iziExport Add-on, and a toast notification appears on your screen to indicate that iziExport Add-on has been installed.
Step 4. Find iziExport from the Window→Extensions menu in Adobe InDesign.
Adobe has reported issues when installing Add-ons on computers with Extension Manager CC and Creative Cloud Desktop App both installed. Make sure yout don't have both installed. If you have problems with the installation please see the following troubleshooting guide for Adobe add-ons. (https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/exchange/kb/troubleshoot-adobe-exchange.html)
Once installed, find iziExport from the Window→Extensions menu in Adobe InDesign.
If you don't find it, please see the following troubleshooting guide for Adobe add-ons. (https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/exchange/kb/troubleshoot-adobe-exchange.html)
- Enter your domain. E.g. https://www.mydomain.com
- Enter your WordPress login and password.
- Enter the XML-RPC path (only needed if not being at the root level)
- If it doesn't work please check that you have entered the URLs with https://
Step 1. Verify that XML-RPC path is correct.
If your WordPress root is http://www.example.com/wordpress:
- 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.
Step 1. Create the tags title, text, image, caption and summary to identify each content element that you want to export. From InDesign choose Window > Utilities > Tags to open the Tags panel and click the New Tag button on the Tags panel.
Step 2. Tag page items with manual tagging. Select a frame or text, and then click a tag in the Tags panel.
Step 3. To export your InDesign document correctly, check that the page items are correctly tagged (title, text, image, caption and summary). And check that the elements has been added to the article before exporting.
How to get started:
Try the new feature auto-tagging:
- 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.
title for the title or post name
text for the main text
image for images
caption for captions
summary for summaries
Any image must be grouped with its corresponding caption.
The tags other than title, text, image, caption and summary are automatically added as WordPress custom fields. Tag other page items (subtitle, etc) in InDesign with the same name of your WordPress custom field (for example the_subtitle).
You can also use the User Fields area to manually add text from 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 also be exported at the end of the main text, depending on the option selected in the ID Extra Tags combo box.
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.
- Tag the image as image and text as caption.
- Add the group to the article.
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.
