Aspose.PDF Importer plugin

WordPress started as a blogging tool and has evolved throughout the years into a powerful website builder and a robust content management system (CMS). Being a content management system (CMS) enables you to organize and display the content on your site. Since it’s free and it is appropriate when you are operating on a small-business budget. Another interesting fact is that it’s easy to use and flexible enough to make different types of websites and it has grown so much in popularity. According to a recent survey, WordPress powers 32.3% of all websites on the internet. Owing to this popularity, we have created a free plugin that provides the feature to import PDF as WordPress post.

During data collaboration, we usually share documents and if you are using WordPress as your CMS, you may receive files in MS Word, PDF, TXT, etc format. However, PDF is among the popular and widely used formats because it preserves the document layout when viewing on different Operating Systems as well as any PDF viewing tools. So in order to add the PDF content into the digital archiving system, you will have to manually type all the details or copy the content from individual PDF pages.

Keeping this requirement in mind, we have developed the Aspose.PDF Importer plugin which provides the feature to import PDF as WordPress post. The WordPress plugin is developed using Aspose.PDF Cloud and demonstrates the powerful conversion features of Aspose.Pdf Cloud API.
