Below are the steps you'll need to complete to set PageFactory up with your Wordpress website.

Before You Start

It's also suggested you start with a small sample of data in your spreadsheet initially, and test creating a handful of pages before processing the full sheet. It's much easier to fix things if something goes awry with three pages, than a thousand.

Step 1: Create a Template

Login to PageFactory, and click "New Template" in the left hand sidebar. Choose the template type "Wordpress", and click the "Create" button. You'll be taken to the template editor.


Step 2: Add Spreadsheet Column Names to PageFactory

Click the "Settings" tab. Enter the name of each spreadsheet column that should be accessed in the template. These will be used as placeholders (aka "variables") in your template. Make sure the column name in the spreadsheet is an exact match of what you enter here!

Example Spreadsheet:

bird data spreadsheet

How these columns would appear in PageFactory:

bird fact variables

Step 3: Build Your Content Template

Return to the template editor by clicking the "Template" tab. Begin creating a template for your content in the Template field.

Click the green plus sign in the editor to access your spreadsheet data. When PageFactory builds your pages, the spreadsheet column names will be replaced with data from the spreadsheet.

Step 4: Activate the PageFactory plugin in Wordpress

Return to the "Settings" tab for your template. Scroll down to enter the URL for your website and save.

Find the Plugin API Key on the settings page. Click the "Reveal" button and copy the API key.

Next, download the PageFactory plugin as a zip file, then follow the steps in this guide to install the plugin on your website.

Once the plugin is installed and activated, enter the API key in the plugin settings on your Wordpress website. You should see a tab called "PageFactory" in the left hand sidebar of the Wordpress dashboard.

Once the API key is saved in Wordpress, refresh the Settings page in PageFactory. If everything is installed and set up correctly, you'll be able to fill out the remaining settings for your template.

Step 5: Fill Out the Remaining Settings Fields

These fields will be used to create each page in Wordpress. Some fields, such as "Slug" and "Title", have a green plus sign above them. Just like the template editor, clicking the green plus sign will allow you to add spreadsheet column names to that field.

This is important because some fields, such as the "Slug" field, must be unique for each page. Use spreadsheet data to ensure that the slug generated for each page is unique.

Step 6: Publish to Wordpress

Click the "Publish" tab, and choose the spreadsheet you want to apply to your template in the CSV File field. Note: The spreadsheet must be saved in CSV format and can not be bigger than 50 MB.

Click the Publish button and PageFactory will begin creating your content and syncing it with Wordpress.

During publishing, PageFactory will check if a page already exists on your Website by looking at the page's slug. If it finds that a page already exists, it will update that page with any changed settings or content. If it does not find a page with a matching slug, it will create a new page entirely.

During publishing, you can refresh the page to check the status of your publish. Most of the time, this shouldn't take more than a minute. But if you're processing a lot of data, it could take a few minutes.
