Is this feature available for Anchor users in all regions?

This integration is available to all users, but only available in English for the time being.

If I publish more blog posts on WordPress.com after I import my blog to Anchor, will they show up in my Anchor dashboard?

Yes, future published posts from Wordpress.com will show up on your Anchor dashboard as episode drafts.

Can I also create episodes on Anchor using my new account that are not originally blog posts from WordPress.com?

Yes, just hit ‘Create episode’ to start a new episode.

Something was imported from my WordPress.com post that I don't want in my episode. Help!

WordPress.com creators will have to remove any elements they don't want automatically read by our text-to-speech tool from their blog (this includes things like photo subtitles, code blocks, or any other elements).

Can I use the text-to-speech episode feature with non-WordPress.com episodes?

No, this is only supported for the WordPress.com integration.

My WordPress.com blog is self hosted on a ".org" page, does the integration still work for me?

No, this is only supported for pages hosted on WordPress.com. Wordpress.org and WordPress.com are two different products from the same team (learn more here). WordPress.com can be installed on any privately hosted website, but this is not part of the integration that we support at this time.

We’ve shared your interest in having it work for self-hosted pages to our team for future consideration. If you have any other requests, we’d love to hear them! You can create a “New Post” for your request or upvote an existing one!

Why am I missing blog posts? I only can see "X" amount of blog posts in my Anchor account.

We are only able to import 250 of your most recent blog posts. We also only import blog posts that are published, so any draft posts will not be imported.
