In today’s digital age, blogging has become a powerful medium for individuals and businesses to share their thoughts, ideas, and expertise with the world.

WordPress, one of the most popular content management systems, has long been the go-to platform for bloggers. With its user-friendly interface and robust features, it’s no wonder that millions of bloggers choose WordPress to host their websites.

In this article, I will show you how to use the WordPress Obsidian Community Plugin to enhance your blogging experience. With this integration, you can write and publish your WordPress blog posts directly from Obsidian, simplifying your workflow and saving you valuable time.

WordPress Community Plugin

First of all, to bridge the gap between Obsidian and WordPress, you need to install the WordPress Obsidian Community Plugin.

Once the plugin is installed, go to the Options panel where you can set some basic settings like the default post status (Draft or Publish), or the default comment status (Open or Closed).

But to really set up the plugin you must open the Profiles section and create a new profile.

First of all, you must choose a name for your profile. Then you need to write your WordPress URL and choose the API to use.

Lastly, you can put here your WordPress username and the Application Password so you won’t need to write them every time you will publish a new blog post.
