You might also know that Ulysses publishes to WordPress with just a few clicks or taps. If so, you\u2019ll be happy to hear that the newest version improves the already-smooth integration between WordPress and Ulysses.<\/p>\n\n\n\n<p>For anyone who might be unfamiliar with the writing tool, Ulysses provides a distraction-free Markdown editor that is customizable to fit your style. Its powerful features help you organize your writing projects and be more productive. When you are satisfied with the content you\u2019ve written, Ulysses can export the text into several formats. Most importantly, it is easy to publish your creation directly to your WordPress.com or self-hosted WordPress site.<\/p>\n\n\n\n<figure class=\"wp-block-image size-large\" style=\"margin: 0 0 1em;\"><a href=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/publishing.jpg\"><img data-attachment-id=\"44263\" data-permalink=\"http:\/\/en.blog.wordpress.com\/publishing\/\" data-orig-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/publishing.jpg\" data-orig-size=\"1920,980\" data-comments-opened=\"1\" data-image-meta='{\"aperture\":\"0\",\"credit\":\"\",\"camera\":\"\",\"caption\":\"\",\"created_timestamp\":\"0\",\"copyright\":\"\",\"focal_length\":\"0\",\"iso\":\"0\",\"shutter_speed\":\"0\",\"title\":\"\",\"orientation\":\"0\"}' data-image-title=\"publishing\" data-image-description=\"\" data-medium-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/publishing.jpg?w=300\" data-large-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/publishing.jpg?w=1024\" src=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/publishing.jpg?w=1024\" alt=\"\" class=\"wp-image-44263\" style=\"max-width: 100%; border-radius: inherit;\" srcset=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/publishing.jpg?w=1024 1024w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/publishing.jpg?w=150 150w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/publishing.jpg?w=300 300w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/publishing.jpg?w=768 768w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/publishing.jpg 1920w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\"><\/a><\/figure><p>Let\u2019s take a closer look at how publishing from Ulysses to WordPress works. First, you will need to connect Ulysses to your WordPress account. If you are a WordPress.com user, you will simply input your user name and password. WordPress self-host users will also supply the URL of the WordPress site. Once the connection is made, Ulysses will also sync with your other devices. You\u2019ll now be able to turn any text you write in Ulysses into WordPress blog posts via the app\u2019s export feature.\u00a0<\/p>\n\n\n\n<p>Ulysses is unique because it automatically transfers not only images and text but also other settings and characteristics. Some of its smart features include:\u00a0<\/p>\n\n\n\n<ul>\n<li>Your text\u2019s first heading will become your post\u2019s title.<\/li>\n<li>Keywords you attached in Ulysses will become tags or categories if they match your blog\u2019s tags or categories.<\/li>\n<li>If there\u2019s an image attached to your text, it will become your post\u2019s featured image.<\/li>\n<li>If there\u2019s a note attached to your text, it will become your post\u2019s excerpt.<\/li>\n<\/ul>\n<p>You can, of course, edit any of these smart settings during publishing. Furthermore, you can set your post\u2019s slug and choose to publish instantly, schedule for later, or upload as a draft. This video walks you through the process.<\/p>\n\n\n\n<figure class=\"wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio\" style=\"margin: 0 0 1em;\"><div class=\"wp-block-embed__wrapper\" style=\"position: relative;\">\n<span class=\"embed-youtube\" style=\"text-align: center; display: block;\"><\/iframe><\/span>\n<\/div><\/figure><p><strong>And now for the big news<\/strong> \u2014 with the latest Ulysses version, you can also update previously published posts directly within the app, which adds even more convenience to your publishing workflow. Consider this common scenario:\u00a0<\/p>\n\n\n\n<p>Sometimes when blogging, a typo or other issue escapes our notice, and we only spot it when looking at the published post or the post\u2019s preview. Until now, Ulysses users needed to switch to WordPress to edit or publish the post a second time. With the latest version, that process is unnecessary. Editing text in Ulysses now enables you to update the corresponding WordPress blog post right within the app. During the publishing workflow, Ulysses will highlight the changes you\u2019re about to make.<\/p>\n\n\n\n<figure class=\"wp-block-image size-large\" style=\"margin: 0 0 1em;\"><a href=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/update.jpg\"><img data-attachment-id=\"44265\" data-permalink=\"http:\/\/en.blog.wordpress.com\/update\/\" data-orig-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/update.jpg\" data-orig-size=\"1920,960\" data-comments-opened=\"1\" data-image-meta='{\"aperture\":\"0\",\"credit\":\"\",\"camera\":\"\",\"caption\":\"\",\"created_timestamp\":\"0\",\"copyright\":\"\",\"focal_length\":\"0\",\"iso\":\"0\",\"shutter_speed\":\"0\",\"title\":\"\",\"orientation\":\"0\"}' data-image-title=\"update\" data-image-description=\"\" data-medium-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/update.jpg?w=300\" data-large-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/update.jpg?w=1024\" src=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/update.jpg?w=1024\" alt=\"\" class=\"wp-image-44265\" style=\"max-width: 100%; border-radius: inherit;\" srcset=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/update.jpg?w=1024 1024w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/update.jpg?w=150 150w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/update.jpg?w=300 300w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/update.jpg?w=768 768w, https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2021\/03\/update.jpg 1920w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\"><\/a><\/figure><p>Ulysses\u2019 newest version improves its time-saving integration with WordPress, making publishing and revising WordPress posts even more convenient than before.<\/p>\n\n\n\n<p class=\"has-background\" style=\"padding: 1.25em 2.375em; background-color: #fcef8d;\">Here\u2019s a fun bonus!
