For WordPress, Drupal, Craft, Fork CMS, SiteManager, HubSpot, Shopify, Joomla! and Webflow CMS we have created plugins that enable you to connect to StoryChief in just a matter of minutes.

But there are hundreds of other CMS systems, such as Squarespace, Kentico, Umbraco, Magento, TYPO3, Pimcore, Adobe Experience Manager, and Sitecore that do not currently have a plugin available.ย 

However, there are still two ways of publishing the content from your StoryChief account to your CMS system:

  1. You can develop a connection yourself using our API. This requires some technical knowledge

With this channel, you are able to transfer stories to websites that are not maintained by yourself or which cannot be connected directly from StoryChief.


How to set up the Clipboard channel

Step 1. Login to storychief.io and navigate to Channels.

Step 2. Select "Clipboard" in the Personal Website section and click on "Add New Destination" button to link your Clipboard channel to StoryChief.

Step 3. Insert the domain of the website you would like to transfer your stories to. Press save and you are ready to go!

How to transfer your stories

Step 1. Write your story and complete the "Summary" section.

Step 2. Proceed to the "Audience" tab and you will find your newly created Clipboard channel. Click on "Transfer your story". As you can see we have already defined a URL where your story should be available, you can change this if necessary.

๐Ÿ”” Note: If you already have a URL for the story, you can click "Edit" and insert your own link. Then proceed to "Transfer your story".

Step 3. The Clipboard page allows you to easily copy and paste your story into your CMS.ย 


Step 4. Publish the story on your website via your CMS.

Step 5. Go back to StoryChief and publish to all other channels such as social channels, newsletters, referral marketing, etc.

If you selected more than one website, you may want to choose the Clipboard channel as your primary channel.

Click on "Confirm". ย 

๐ŸŽ‰ The story has now been published on all of your other channels!
