Docswrite API


You can make a POST request to the endpoint URL to create/update a blog post/page on your WordPress site. You can even mention most of the parameters in the Google Docs document itself.

  • Create a table in the Google Docs document. It should be the first table in the document.
  • The table should have two columns. The first column should contain the parameter name and the second column should contain the parameter value.
  • The column name should be docswrite_settings. Otherwise, we won't be able to read the table.

For example, you can add a title parameter in the Google Docs document itself and it will be used as the title of the blog post.
