Migrate from the old WordPress plugin to the official one

With our improved connection to WordPress, you can directly download the Plugin from the WordPress store. This update also limits the ContentStudio plugin access to only admins so your account is  more secure

Note: Please remember to remove the existing plugin connections from both ContentStudio and WordPress.

You must have administrator privileges for both the pages, also don't close the tabs you open!

Let's get started!

Sign in to your ContentStudio app.
2
Go to the Settings in the top right corner

3
Click on Blogs/Websites.

Under WordPress, remove your existing connection by pressing the icon that looks like a trashcan.  

5
Click "Yes."
