The social networking giant, set to open its Instant Articles feature to all publishers next month, has launched a free WordPress plugin that will help publishers create Instant Articles with ease.
The open-source WordPress publishing platform now powers more than 25 percent of sites on the web so “we are excited to help millions of publishers all over the world bring the Instant Articles experience to their readers”, he added. The plugin creates a special RSS feed that automatically optimizes Facebook posts to appear as Instant Articles. The plugin is open-source and customization.
Publishers that want a more customised production experience can extend the plugin to support additional elements.
“We encourage all interested publishers on WordPress to review the plugin’s documentation and FAQs,” the post said.
