WordPress: The Ultimate CMS
WordPress is an incredible content management system used by millions of bloggers, business owners, and organizations. It supports a variety of post formats, but what if you want to publish HTML files on your website? Well, don’t fret because we’ve got you covered.
Why upload HTML files to WordPress?
There are several reasons why uploading HTML files to your WordPress website is essential. For starters, you can move your website, which was designed on the HTML platform, to WordPress while still keeping the layout, content, and resources intact. Secondly, you might be creating a web page or project requiring an HTML file, but it needs to remain within the WordPress framework. Lastly, uploading HTML files could enhance search engine optimization by adding rich content that is both SEO-friendly and easily understood by search engines. Whatever your reason may be, read on to learn how to upload HTML files to WordPress.
Method 1: Use Media Library
The first and easiest way to upload HTML files to WordPress is through the Media Library. Follow these steps to do so:
- Log in to your WordPress dashboard and select Media > Add New.
- From the right side panel, click on the “Select Files” button, and then locate the HTML file you want to upload.
- Once the file has been chosen, click on the “upload” button. The Media Library will automatically upload and process the file.
- After the upload process is complete, you can rename the file, add a description, or tag it.
- When you have finished editing the file details, copy the file’s URL from the “file URL” in the “Attachment Details” panel, found on the right sidebar of the “Add Media” screen.
- Click on the “Insert into Post” button if you want to embed the HTML file in a post or click on the “Copy URL” button if you want to use it in different content.
Method 2: Use a plugin
You can also upload HTML files to WordPress through the use of a plugin. This method is more time-consuming than the media library option but more effective if you want to upload many HTML files at once or don’t want to access the Media Library. Here’s how to do it:
- Log in to your WordPress dashboard and click on the “Add New” button from the plugin section. Look for the plugin “File Manager” and install it.
- Activate the plugin once it has been installed.
- Once the plugin has been activated, click on “File Manager” from the left-hand side menu under “Settings.”
- Click on the “Upload” button at the top right corner of the new page.
- Choose the HTML file you want to upload from your computer and then click on the “Upload” button.
- You can now access your uploaded HTML file by clicking on it. You can edit its content if necessary, view its properties, and download it.
- Copy the file URL situated on the top right-hand side corner of the screen or use it to link it to any content on the website.
Uploading HTML files to WordPress is easy, and it can help you add rich media and attract search engines’ attention. You can either use the Media Library or the plugin File Manager, and both methods are beginner-friendly, so you don’t need coding knowledge or additional software. Now go forth and add HTML files to your website in no time!
