There are two easy ways to send new WordPress posts to your queues within your Buffer publishing dashboard. The first is to use a WordPress to Buffer plugin created by WP Zinc, and the second is to use Zapier. We'll explore both options in this article.
WordPress to Buffer Plugin by WP Zinc
WP Zinc offer a Free version and a Pro version of their WordPress to Buffer plugin. Using the Free version, you're able to send WordPress posts to your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn queues. Using the Pro version, you're also able to send posts to your Instagram and Pinterest queues, as well as being able to include featured images, use advanced scheduling options, and have access to their support.
Please note, the Free version is available to all WordPress customers, while the Pro version is only available to self-hosted WordPress installations, or WordPress.com installations using the WordPress Business Plan.
📝 Please note, we are not able to support third party applications or plugins. For support, please get in touch with the WP Zinc support team here.
Zapier is a web automation tool, described as the "glue" that connects more than 1,000 web apps. Zaps are workflows, which connect apps so they can work together. Zaps start with a trigger, which is an event in an app which kicks off the workflow, and end with an action, which is an event that's completed automatically in a second app. Zaps automate tasks in the background. Zapier have thousands of templates that you can tweak and use, or you can create your own from scratch.
After signing up for a Zapier account (if you don't already have one), head over to this template and configure it as needed.
