Automatically Share Content on Social Media

WordPress to Buffer Pro automatically publishes new and existing WordPress Posts, Pages and Custom Post Types to:

  • Facebook (Pages and Groups)
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn (Pages and Profiles)
  • Google+ (Pages and Profiles)
  • Pinterest
  • Instagram (Personal and Business Profiles)

Just connect WordPress to Buffer Pro to your Buffer account (we show you how), choosing how and when you want to publish content to your social media profiles.  That’s it.

* Pinterest requires that you’re on the Buffer Awesome Plan or higher.
** Starting July 26th 2018, Facebook have disabled third party apps from publishing to your personal Facebook Profile.  Read more.

Post Direct to Instagram

If you have an Instagram Business Profile, WordPress to Buffer Pro can schedule posts to be published straight to your Instagram.  There’s no need to act on a posting ‘reminder’, and you don’t need a paid Buffer plan.

Don’t have an Instagram Business Profile? It’s free to switch your personal profile.

Full Support for Pages, Posts and Custom Post Types

WordPress to Buffer Pro works with all public Custom Post Types, whether you’re using WooCommerce Products or any Theme / Plugin that’s defines Custom Post Types.

For each Page, Post, Custom Post Type and Social Media account, choose to enable or disable automatic content sharing when publishing or updating your WordPress web site’s content.

One or more status updates can be added for each Post Type and Social Media account – for example, you can choose to share your Post’s content on Facebook, but just share the excerpt on Twitter.

WordPress to Buffer Pro: Custom Post Types

Multiple, Customisable Status Messages

For each Post Type and Social Media account combination, you can specify any number of unique statuses – each with their own text and options.

Status updates are dynamically built using template tags.  These include the Post’s title, excerpt, content, date, URL, any custom field data, any Post taxonomy terms and the Post’s author.

Shortcodes are also supported in the status text.

For example, you can share your content three times to Facebook, once to Twitter and twice to Google+ over the period of two days – each with their own, unique status messages.

Ditch the Social Media Spreadsheet

For each individual Post and Social Media account combination, you can specify any number of unique statuses – again, each with their own text and options.

If you’re using spreadsheets to plan how and when to share a new blog post, WordPress to Buffer Pro is the perfect solution.  Define all of your status messages, each with different text and publishing times.

Full Image Control

For each Post Type and Social Media account combination, you can choose to either have your SEO or Open Graph Plugin define the image to include with your social media updates, or let WordPress to Buffer Pro use your Post’s Featured Image (either linked, or not linked, to your Post).

WordPress to Buffer Pro also provides its own Featured Image option, should your Custom Post Type not have Featured Image support, and/or you need to use a different image for your social network posts vs. your Post’s Featured Image.

Powerful Scheduling

Each social media status update can independently be set to:

  • Publish immediately,
  • Add to the start of the social media profile’s Buffer queue,
  • Add to the end of the social media profile’s Buffer queue,
  • Publish at a defined time period after the Post’s publish date.
  • Publish at a defined time period after a Post’s custom field / meta value (such as an ACF date field).

Conditional Publishing

Status updates can be set to conditionally be sent to Buffer based on a Post’s Taxonomy Terms and/or Custom Field values existing or not existing.

For Custom Field values, comparison operators include Equals, Does not Equal, Great Than or Equal to, Less Than, Less Than or Equal to, Like (partial match) and Not Like (partial match).

This is useful when you want to send different updates for a Post:

  • Depending on the Post Category,
  • To different Pinterest boards depending on the Post Category,
  • Depending on whether a Custom Field Key’s value matches a given value
  • Depending on whether a Custom Field’s Key contains a given value

Automatically Bulk Publish Old Posts

Bulk Publish evergreen WordPress content and revive old posts with the Bulk Publish option.

The simple bulk publishing interface allows you to query for Posts, Pages or Custom Post Types published in a specified time period, before choosing which Posts, Pages or Custom Post Types to schedule for sharing on your chosen social media accounts.

You can also choose Posts, Pages and Custom Post Types using the Bulk Actions in WordPress, and send them straight to your Buffer queue.

Publish your Events

WordPress to Buffer Pro provides integration with The Events Calendar Plugin. Schedule social media status messages based on your Event’s Start or End date, as well as display Event-specific details in your status updates.

Detailed Logging

Logging can be enabled to help troubleshoot any occasional issues. Logs display the statuses sent to Buffer, along with the response received.

WP-Cron Compatible

When publishing or updating a Post, WP-Cron can be enabled, allowing WordPress to send status updates through its Cron system a few minutes later. This helps improve performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I publish Posts automatically and directly to Instagram?

Yes - simply change your Instagram personal profile to a business profile. It's free to do.

Can I publish Posts automatically to my personal Facebook Profile?

Starting July 26th 2018, Facebook have disabled all third party apps (including Buffer and Hootsuite) from publishing to your personal Facebook Profile.

What are the hosting requirements?

You must have a self-hosted WordPress site (not WordPress.com), running at least version 4.8 and PHP 5.6.

Do I have to pay every year?

To receive ongoing support and updates, you must renew your license every year (unless purchasing a Lifetime license). This is optional, and if you choose not to renew, you can still use the Plugin.

Can I upgrade my license later?

Yes. You can upgrade an active (non expired) license, only paying the pro rata difference between the upgraded license and your current license.

Do you offer a free trial?

You're welcome to purchase a license, and if within 14 days it is not suitable, simply request a refund - no questions asked.

Can I use this Plugin on client sites?

Either purchase a Lifetime license, or have your clients purchase their own license. If purchasing a Lifetime license, support requests must come from the license holder - not your clients.

Do I need a Buffer account?

Yes, you'll need an account at buffer.com. If you want to publish to Pinterest or have several social media accounts, you may need to use a paid Buffer plan, with Buffer.com

Are you and Buffer the same company?

No. We provide WordPress software which automates scheduling social media via your Buffer.com account. We are a separate company.
