Anthologize, where have you been all my life?
Anthologize is an amazing plugin that uses the power of WordPress to help you transform your online content into an electronic book. It is the secret weapon that allowed me to save all of my blog posts as a Word document.
Once you install the plugin, Anthologize creates its own admin heading in the dashboard where you can configure the plugin and begin. You will choose a book title and create what they call parts, which are basically going to be your chapters. You are then able to view and search for your posts by category, tags, post types or date range.
Once you have identified a post you can drag and drop the title to the correct Part. You won’t see the content of the post at this point but know it brings it all in including the images. You are able to rearrange your posts and parts.
When finished with post selection and placement, you then select a copyright type, write a dedication or acknowledgement and choose a print or digital export format such as: PDF, RTF, HTML, e-Pub or Anthologize TEI formats. I tried the PDF format and it is formatted and organized like a book. Very cool.
I did not want to make an e-book, but I did want the flexibility of printing out my content into an editable text format. To do this, I selected the option to export the document with Anthologize to a RTF file and was able to open that document and then save it as a Word doc. That lets me continue to edit and format the information as needed.
I hope you are as thrilled with this WordPress plugin as I am. Let me know how you plan to use it!
