The Ulysses Beta–Now with Built-in WordPress

So this happened.

The new upload to WordPress export option.

Because this is a beta release, and I’m not doing a full review because feature will be added and bugs will get fixed. In the meantime, I do have a few observations.

It pulled in the wrong display name (that’s from an unused locked blog) but otherwise works the same as my upload script except links open in the same window instead of a new one. (Bug report sent.)

And yes, if you’re wondering, Ulysses keywords are translated into WordPress tags. If you’re already a Ulysses tag user, this will mean having to edit a few tags out after uploading.

My list of things to I’d like to see:

  • Ability to schedule posts
  • Use the native WordPress way of inserting images
  • Add the uploaded URL of images back into the (IMG) tag of the Ulysses sheet.
  • An option to not open WordPress in the browser after upload.

Overall, it looks like a good start. I’m looking forward to seeing more of these type of integrations.
