Welcome to our WordPress lesson. With this Knowledge bit, we are going to talk about tools and will discuss how you can import and export data.
So by default, we have got a press this option. So this is sometimes a lot of people don’t really use this tool but it’s there if you do want to use it and allows you to great post from content on the web in your bookmark area so you can simply press and add in content so it’s another way that WordPress helps you quickly add in content so we had looked at the ability to send emails and add posts in the way as well.
Import & Export
This is another important one for Backup here we have got the ability to import WordPress content and as well as export files. So this is another way to backup so besides this automated backup we have the ability to import and export content into and out of WordPress. There is also categories and type converter so we can convert categories and tags
So if we want to actually import an RSS feed we are able to do that directly in the import here, so all we have to do is set that up and give it a second to load up and we can actually import, it’s an RSS importer so it’s not installed by default but it allows us to import posts from an RSS feed.
So what’s that means is that if you have got an RSS feed somewhere maybe if you have another site and you have got an RSS feed you want all of those posts to automatically come into WordPress you can easily do it that way.
For example, whenever you are posting on your Tumblr account you might want to pull it into your WordPress and that’s the way that you can do that or you could pull in any one of these feeds and automatically post to your site. So exporting is a bit different than importing, because exporting you have the option to export out your content. And this is another thing that you can use for backing up so you can export all of your content. So back it up and download it and this gives you the ability to do that and that’s by default within the tools section.
In this Knowledge bit, we have talked more about tools and we have further discussed how you can import and export your WordPress file. In the next knowledge bit, we are going to talk about user control and talk about how you can add a new user.
