REQUEST : A way to create / upload your own original content directly into paper.li's system

Hi - please click the "Follow" button on the top right and a quick short comment below if you would like to add your voice to ours requesting the following feature be added to paper.li. The support people have confirmed that there is no way to do this now but are aware it's a request that's been made by others and suggested we canvas for your vote here!

=====

FEATURE REQUEST :
We want to be able to add our own original content not hosted elsewhere directly to our paper by uploading or typing (and if possible formatting in a basic way) articles and other media directly into your system. (In other words we don't want to use e.g. your bookmarklet on content hosted an a website or in Facebook / Twitter / Youtube etc.)

Being able to create / edit content directly in paper.li will be a high-demand feature most users will appreciate, seeing as value in an individual Paper will largely lie in not only aggregrating great content over a wide range of sources, saving readers time, but also in adding unique content not available elsewhere even if the reader chooses to spend their time searching for publicly-available material --- AND of course it will be more efficient for us to directly upload content, rather than having to host it on a web page somewhere else online, opening this page, then clicking on the paper.li bookmarklet!

Hi,
Easiest way is to create an rss feed for your blog, then add your blog to the feed for your paper.

Yes, a very useful feature. More control over the content in general, would be very helpful.

Yes, I would like to be able to add my own content or content I have found from other sources into my paper.li project. Is this possible? If so, I haven't found it yet. There are many sources that are not on here that would be a tremendous asset to the projects.

I would love to be able to add my own material to my Paperli. I was just about to search the web to see if it was possible. Apparently not.

This is the missing option that is keeping me from adopting Paper.li

Would be a great feature and very useful. Currently experimenting with a number of workarounds to do this...

I would like to be able to add articles which have not yet appeared on social media as I can then have exclusivity to some stories

This major stumbling block is what is keeping me from publishing a pro magazine. Adding one or two fresh (not seen elsewhere) articles will give our publications personality.

Please consider adding an option for us to post our own articles from a WordDoc that will stay on the site until "we" remove and/or replace it. In our situation, we are thinking about using such an article for 7 days after each posting.

Thanks for making this a reality.

I would like to use this as an internal communications tool with my department however I cannot add my own office news to the tool and so it is not optimal for us at this time.

Hi Mandy,

If your content is already published to the web, you can add it to your paper using our bookmarklet. You can also manually add articles by submitting their URLs under Content > Manually Add an Article within your Paper Settings Dashboard.

If your content is not already published to the web, you may still add it via Google Docs.

Additionally, if you have a website where you regularly post your content, and your site has an RSS feed, you can add your RSS feed as a content source so that your paper will automatically fetch content from your site.

I hope that helps.
