Using WordPress user names as the author when publishing from Enterprise 10

Using WordPress user names as the author when publishing from Enterprise 10

When a user publishes a post to WordPress from Content Station, Enterprise Server will try to use the name of this user as the WordPress author. For this to work, the following requirements need to be met:

  • The user must exist in Enterprise Server and in WordPress
  • The user must have one of the following WordPress roles:
  • Administrator
  • Editor
  • Author
  • The user name used by WordPress has to be mapped to the user name used by Enterprise Server

If none of these conditions are met, the name of the default user is used.

When should mapping be performed?

Mapping the names in WordPress to the names in Enterprise Server should be done when:

  • Setting up the WordPress integration for the first time on a system
  • Adding a user (who should be allowed to publish) to WordPress or Enterprise, or changing the way the name is written

Setting up WordPress

Step 1. Access your WordPress Dashboard and click Users.

Step 2. For each user who is allowed to publish from Enterprise, make sure that one of the following roles is assigned:

  • Administrator
  • Editor
  • Author

Step 3. Make sure that the way the user name is written is identical to the corresponding name in Enterprise Server.

Note: The mapping is not case-sensitive.

Example: Mapping 'WoodWing User' to 'woodwing user' will be successful, but mapping 'R. Smart' to 'Rob Smart' will not.

Setting up Enterprise Server

Step 1. Access the User Maintenance page for the user.

Step 2. Make sure that the way the user name is written in the User field or the Full Name field is identical to the way that the name is written in WordPress.

Note: The mapping is not case-sensitive.

Example: Mapping 'WoodWing User' to 'woodwing user' will be successful, but mapping 'R. Smart' to 'Rob Smart' will not.

Mapping the WordPress users to the Enterprise Server users

Mapping the users is done by importing the WordPress users into Enterprise Server.

Note: Names are considered to be a match when the lower-case name of a user in WordPress matches the lower-case name or the full name of a user in Enterprise Server.

Step 1. Access the WordPress Maintenance page.
