Shift8 Push


This is a plugin that pushes a single post or page to an external site via the REST API

Instructions for setup

  1. Generate core WordPress application user & password on the destination server. You can follow the official WordPress instructions for generating an application password.
  2. Setup plugin on your source server and configure application user & password
  3. When editing a single post or page, a “Push” button will appear to push the changes to the server.

Want to see the plugin in action?

There isn’t anything to see! This is transparent API interactions from the source server to the destination server.


  • Fully pushes all content of a single post or page from your source server (i.e. staging) to the destination server (i.e. production)
  • If the page or post doesnt exist, it will create it and clone the slug
  • If the page or post exists, it will overwrite the content with the source server.


  • Main settings page of plugin admin


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/shif8-push directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Navigate to the plugin settings page and define your settings

I was really excited about giving this a try but the plgin is lacking documentation to make it a seamless process for getting started. It asks for a password but does not give any instructions on setting that up. I created my own but got a message stating there was a critical error when i went to click the test button that appeared after entering all the details. In theory it may be great but I don't have the time to try to figure it out.
