[FEATURE SUGGESTIONS] Updating articles

The software evolves a lot and on our side, we improve the scraping of the articles with all the new functions or parameterization errors.

Is it possible to think about two options:
1 - to update the articles with the new program settings
2 - replace / overwrite posts on WordPress while preserving the same link of the publication ?

The reason, google indexed me 3600 articles and I wouldn't like to erase and redo everything :'(



  • SvenSven
    Im afraid that changing the content of an article is not that easy. That would require a totally new interface and way to login/edit things.

    Probably the ...5x version :)
    Already, if we can dedupe the keywords of one project from the others, it would be great.

  • SvenSven
    You mean something like: clicking EDIT->Remove kewords being on other projects -> popup -> choose projects -> OK -> remove from current project ?
  • FrancoisKFrancoisK Paris

    No, the objective is to duplicate all the items of a project or all the projects present in another project or all the other projects
    Is it possible in the event of errors or reinstallation of wordpress, to be able to republish articles already published, an option would be the right one to do so :):blush: ?

    Is it possible to have no space in the link ?
    For example :

    Link created

    Error link displayed by google

    Good link ?
  • SvenSven
    slug: OK, Im trying to improve this on next update.
    published select/not select is added for next update using right click->select/filter...
    I just have problems understanding what you mean with your first request. Please show a sample.
  • Yes, thank you. In the links, there are special characters, which should crash my server

    Example :

    My request,
    - Delete identical posts/articles in one project from other projects
    - Ability to re-export posts/articles, even if they have already been exported

  • SvenSven
    couldn't you add that as a project filter itself so that words with that get replaced?
  • I find that as ''Add'', it is easier to ''remove'' see the screenshot.
    At least for the keywords because it is the keywords that will make the articles.

    Hello Sven,
    Thanks for the corrections

    Link: it is possible to convert letters with accents by letters without accents, because currently you delete them.
    If it creates more problems, leave it like this

    This is where, if it is an option :  improved article import from folder/file ?

    I know you're overworked...
    On the forum, it would be nice to explain your new options / patches and find the participation of your community to make a complete manual. :)
    Unfortunately, I don't speak English and I'm a beginner in your tools.

    with the new version, how to change the status from ''Published'' to ''Unpublished'' : option to select published/not published articles
  • I found, it is by republishing the articles

  • Hi Sven,

    Without wanting to bother you, there are still some small problems in the slug that does not display or convert the characters and makes the link not SEO friendly.

    - The accentuations
    - characters such as: Ɗ, Ⅴ, t , e

  • SvenSven
    Arn't that chars from the "character spin" algorithm?
  • FrancoisKFrancoisK Paris
    edited November 2020
    I'll see if it's possible with GSA not to decorate the titles but just to spin

    But I don't think that's possible. It would be nice to have this option of not just decorating the title of the articles ?

  • SvenSven
    next update will auto remove the charspin from the title for the slug. It will also try to replace ancient chars with a-z.
  • Top, this is good news :)

    Hello Sven,

    Thanks for the special character fixes in the slug, it's a very good thing. :'(

    - Is it possible when forcing the re-publication of articles, to change the re-publication date by the current date ?

    - When selecting duplicate titles, is it possible to select unpublished titles/articles in priority ?

    Example, if I have 2 titles of articles generated in duplicate or triple, it happens that it selects the title of the article already published and not the new title / article.
  • Hello Sven,
    1 - As I have big problems when exporting with xmlrpc errors, this process blocks 4 or 6 articles before having the xmlrpc problem.
    I've tried everything but nothing solves my problem.

    2 - I use the All Import plugin.
    I have a problem of encoding ''UFT-8'' when exporting to CSV or XML.

    3 - In XML import, out of 300 items in the file, the plugin finds only 2 to import

    4 - With the import tool of Wordpress, I get error messages:
    Impossible to import Article "XXX" and I only import 50% of it.

    I attach a CSV export

    oops error,  the problem is not solved yet

  • SvenSven
    >- Is it possible when forcing the re-publication of articles, to change the re-publication date by the current date

    I will put latest publish-date there and keep older as well.

    >- When selecting duplicate titles, is it possible to select unpublished titles/articles in priority ?

    I will try to come up with a solution here.

    > import error...can you try to cut that file down to e.g. the only articles that are not imported? It might be some issue on the encoding or a character that is not understood by the importer that has to be removed...though I can not test this myself.

    Hello @Sven ;
    Tip: To help me create my title list (titlegen.dat), is it possible to export (with French accents) in a txt file only the titles of the articles.
    After that, I retrieve them and add my variables to it

  • SvenSven
    export using the template "All Titles in One Text File (titles per line)"
  • FrancoisKFrancoisK Paris

    Thank you :)
    OK, I have a problem with accentuation
    Will it be possible the same thing in Ansi ?
    No hurry

  • SvenSven
    you can modify that template and add some replacements that will be performed on export.
  • Hello @Sven,
    I'm cloaking my articles.
    A suggestion: Insert my text on the first two lines of the articles

    On the principle of titles (titlegen.dat) and variables, it would be to insert 2/3 sentences that would be inserted in the first 2 / 3 lines of the articles.

    It would allow to display them in Google's results and thus not to display recovered content including the name or web domain of my competitors.
