Before you start...
If your blog or site looks like this: https://YOURSITE.wordpress.com then you'll want to use the WordPress tutorial
If your site is the domain of your choosing only such as https://YOURDOMAIN.com then you're in the right place!
You can use the step by step instructions below or if you prefer to watch the video tutorial click here.
Connecting your self-hosted WP site
Click on the Accounts link at the top of the page and select Self-Hosted WordPress
Download the plugin but be sure to leave it zipped
Go back to your backend and add the plugin
Click upload plugin
Click Choose file and choose the zipped plugin you just downloaded.
Once the file is chosen click Install Now
Once it's finished installing select Activate Plugin
Add a new user
Choose any name, and email. It doesn't matter what you choose as it won't be used for anything else but make sure you create the user as an "Editor"
Once you've created the user, go back and edit the user
Now you'll see the application password plugin you just installed and click on add new.
Make sure to save the password that comes up somewhere safe as this is the only time it will appear. If you lose it, you can create another one, but we recommend saving it in a safe place.
Last but not least
Copy the password and go back to Social Post Magic.
Enter your website host which is your domain
Enter the username you created
Paste the application password and submit
Congratulations! You just connected your WP account to Social Post Magic!
