Admins can setup a Wodify and WordPress Integration that will post WODs to their gym’s WordPress blog. (What is the difference between WordPess.com v.s. WordPress.org?). If you do not have a WordPress site, you can still post your workouts using a different set of steps.

 

Wordpress.com Integration

  • Log into Wodify Core > Gym > Web Integrations
  • Click ‘Enable’ > Select Wordpress.com

IMPORTANT:  Be sure to Disable Blog Integration if you deactivate your WordPress account.
