Nelio Content is a WordPress plugin and service that aims at helping you to generate great content and promote it effectively and effortlessly. Its functionalities include:
- An Editorial Calendar that offers a unified view of all your content (including posts, tasks, and social messages), beautifully integrated within WordPress.
- Social Messages that share your content in social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn. You can schedule these messages while you’re writing a post and Nelio will automatically share them when the post is published or whenever you want it to.
- Editorial team. WordPress is a multi-user environment, and so is Nelio Content. If you run a web with multiple contributors (and authors and editors), all of them will be able to use Nelio Content and use the right tools at the right moment.
- Suggesting references to your authors, so that they know the contents they should link in their posts or discover what might inspire them.
- Quality Analysis of your posts guarantee that your content looks beautiful and that you addressed all the important issues before publishing it.
Almost all the information you generate with Nelio Content is stored in Nelio’s cloud. The only information that is stored in your own WordPress server is:
- Posts. Your blog’s content has always been, is, and will be yours. Even if the Editorial Calendar offers a unified view that includes your scheduled and published posts, these are still saved in your WordPress database. Our plugin simply queries this data from your database and integrates the results in the calendar.
- Editorial Team. WordPress users (and hence the members of your editorial team) are also stored in your database. Again, Nelio Content only uses this information for offering the right tools to each role at each moment, but it never sends that information back to our servers.
- Suggested References. All the links you suggest for creating a post are also stored in your database. In particular, we use a custom post type named
nc_referencefor doing so. If you deactivate and delete the plugin, but don’t clean the database, all these references will still be in there. However, you won’t be able to see them, because WordPress doesn’t know how to deal with
nc_references once our plugin is no longer installed.
- Plugin Settings, the ones in Nelio Content » Settings, are also stored in WordPress using the Settings API. The only exception is social profiles, which are stored in Nelio’s cloud (for we need them to share your social messages).
- Account Information. In order to access Nelio’s cloud, the plugin also stores a few options in your
wp_optionstable. Thus, for example, there’s an option that stores the identifier of your site in our cloud, or a
secretkey to access the cloud safely.
All options in
wp_options related to Nelio Content start with the
nc_ prefix, whereas custom fields related to your posts use a slightly different prefix:
_nc_ (the first underscore tells WordPress that these fields are private).
If you want to deactivate the plugin and, at the same time, clean your database, just follow the steps depicted here.
