One of the things that’s difficult to highlight when you have such a feature rich tool like Curation Suite is showcasing it’s true power.
For instance, the Curation Suite Visual Editor is really a powerful parsing machine.
In the most basic terms what it does behind the scenes is scour the content you’re curating and help you find prime things (text, videos, social updates, and more) for you to curate.
Here’s everything the Curation Suite Visual Editor will discover for you to curate:
- Everything you see on this post below (and more)
- All content (text, headlines, lists)
- Auto Summarizes the article or story
- Finds Meta text and tags (for you to use or add to your post)
- All images on a story or piece of content
- Videos (YouTube, Vimeo, Faceboo, even 3rd party videos)
- Social Updates (Twitter, Facebook, ImgUr, Instagram, Slideshare)
The Visual Editor does all this in a simple to use point and click interface right within your WordPress dashboard.
We put together this post to highlight all the ways the Curation Suite Visual Editor helps you cite and curate content.
How Do You Load the Visual Editor?
The Curation Suite visual editor is accessed via the Curation Suite sidebar in your standard WordPress post/page editing area.
When you search for content (or use the curation shortcut CurateThis) the Curation Suite Visual Editor will automatically load and start parsing your link or story. Here’s where the true power comes into play.
For instance, if you load this post you’re reading right now with Curation Suite you’ll see it will find all the content, images, lists, social updates, videos, and more shown below.
Does this help reveal the true power of the Visual Editor? Maybe seeing is believing, right?
