Integrate with Drupal 7

This article is a summary of how to connect Drupal to Kapost once your developer has completed all of the steps in this article.  Unlike the previous steps outlines in the preliminary article, these steps can be completed by a non-developer.

Go to Settings -> App Center. You will want to click "Install More Apps" and choose your platform from the App Center to be Drupal.  If applicable, choose which instance you wish to connect.

You will be directed back to your instance and your Drupal Integration box will appear.  Enter the authentication info for the Drupal user you wish to connect - please note, this user doesn't have to be an Admin level user, but a user that has correct publishing permissions.


Once you click connect, a pop-up will appear asking which of your blogs you would like to publish to - in Drupal, these are referred to as content types or nodes.  You can find them in Drupal by going to Structure -> Content Types.  Select the blog/node you would like this connection to publish to - in this instance, the user is connecting to "article."

You can only connect to one blog/node per Drupal connection.  If you wish to publish to more than one node, you need to create another Drupal connection following the steps above.  You may use the same user, but when the node pop-up appears, select a node different from the one in your previous connection.

 

Once you've connected in The App Center, you will need to add Drupal as a primary destination to your content type. Head to Content Types & Workflow in Kapost Settings and you can choose the Drupal instance(s) that you've connected to, as the primary destination. Click save, and you're ready to publish.

Lastly, if you wish to preview Drupal posts in Kapost before publishing them, you need to enable Preview.  Here is how to enable this feature.
