How to Use Pre-Formatted WordPress Posts

If you have purchased one of my HomeFreePLR Website Packs, congratulations! You are about to experience the easiest way to add content to your WordPress website or blog.

These instructions might seem complicated at first, but there are really just three main steps:

  • Copy
  • Paste
  • Edit

Your preformatted blog posts are delivered in a zip file labelled WordPress or WP. Open the zip file by double-clicking (Mac) or choosing Extract all and checking Show extracted files when complete (PC). You will see a series of txt files, one for each article.

Open the first txt file you want to load. Use a simple text editor like Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac). Copy the text to your clipboard by selecting the text (Highlight all or place the cursor anywhere in the text window and choose Ctrl+A) and choosing Edit/Copy or Ctrl+C.

Go to your WordPress dashboard Edit Post window and select Text edit mode, as highlighted below in yellow. Place your cursor in the box and hit Ctrl+V to Paste. Save as a Draft and Preview.

To set your featured image, you can upload the header images provided using “Set featured image” at the bottom of the right column under Featured Image. Alternatively, you can add the image to the beginning of your post using the Add Media button. Sometimes it’s important to use a featured image because of the way your theme displays content.

Optional: You can adjust the width of the images by changing the numbers inside the quotes like this: ( width=”600” ). Be very careful not to delete anything else. All those brackets and quotes are important!

Optional: You might also want to adjust the size of your headings. Different themes have different ways of interpreting h1, h2, etc. You can change the numbers before and after the headings to change their size. (Be sure to change BOTH before and after!) Smaller numbers mean larger headings.

Optional: Edit and rework the content to reflect your personal voice, your experience, and point of view. Or leave it as is. It’s up to you.

When you are happy with the looks of your post, hit Publish. Easy! The great thing is that you don’t need to worry about uploading image files or videos. These are all securely hosted elsewhere.

If you want to upload them to your own hosting service, they are supplied so you can do so. But, I think that you just might prefer the ease of letting HomeFreePLR do the formatting work for you!
