Push new and updated documents to Wordpress website (not .com website)

Hi,

We have quite some system documentation in Confluence. On a regular basis this documentation is updated and then the updates are propagated manually to our Wordpress website (not a wordpress.com website). It is done manually via MS Word and then printed as a PDF. Of course this whole process is not top of the bill.

Therefor, we are looking for an improved solution: when a document in Confluence is updated it should be propagated to the Wordpress website, and a specific post should be updated as a result. Could be an approval step as intermediate, but not mandatory.

Until now no WP-plugin found to be helpful.... And I have hardly any knowledge about Confluence. So any help appreciated

First my condolences on having to work with Wordpress. ;-) We have a custom process that you push a button and it generates a PDF, and then write that docuement to our Drupal site, adding/updating the description, version number and date. Takes only a minute or so to run.

It is a custom solution that we  had engineered for us.

If you want to go to HTML, then I would look at Scroll Viewport  to make your process much much smoother.

Well, thanks for your idea; currently I prefer to go to html, so I will investigate the scroll viewport a bit.

Hi @Leon Nabuurs

Are you on Confluence server or Cloud? Well you will have to get a custom interface developed to achieve that rely on Confluence and Wordpress REST API to update the page.

Hi,

We use the cloud version of Confluence. I hoped there would be a standard interface (plugin in Confluence) that pushes updated documents to a Wordpress website (connecting to the WP REST API). Alternative is a WP Plugin that retrieves actual data from the Confluence data store on a daily basis......

Could you please indicate whether there could be a generic solution in the market? Or should I build a tailor made connection?

An alternative could be a link to the wiki of our supplier (public wiki) and transform the content to our look and feel, but thats a bit tricky I assume

Hopefully you can give more detail on this subject
