I must do some content curation for my clients. One of my favorite tool is just one great feature of the Scoopit Content Director solution : it allows me to create a wordpress article from the curent browser page I am visiting. I click on an chrome extension button, it opens the panel and I'm done. (see image attached)
So what is the problem ? => I don't need the rest of this solution (other Scoopit content curaton features), which is actually much too expensive for only using this one feature.
=> This is why I need to get a new solution to create worpress articles from any web article on the internet, in very few clicks.
This solution must be a workflow using webhooks and automation (for example using Zapier's wordpress integrations). It is meant as a proof of concept that I will use on many worpress sites when it works fine.
Step 0 : User selects the input content that need to be "curated" and copies its URL, and pastes it in some input point (trello card ? Google sheet ? Whatever takes the less clicks)
Step 1 : parse web page from url to get the following elements: article title, featured image, first 100 words of the article
Step 2 : automate the creation of a draft WordPress article that contains these elements + a link to the source url (using a rel="canonical" tag)
Tools for this project :
We can provide existing Zapier account and Worpress site, but you can also use yours.
=> Can you make it ? If you have any suggestion or exising reference to show me how you will render this proof of concept, please tell me !
!!! This is not a project for webmarketers or "standard" wordpress users, it requires tech skills. If you can provide references on existing jobs with zapier or IFTTT before answering, it would be very appreciated !
