Publish Method

Description

Depending on how you have configured publishing, your publish method can differ. As the Getting Started document shows, you can configure publishing via our WordPress plugins, or you can configure publishing on LinksAlpha.com. Internally, LinksAlpha terms publishing as:
  1. Direct (Recommended) - via Network Publisher or 1-Click or Social Discussions WordPress plugins
  2. RSS Feed - via LinksAlpha.com

Your Publishing Method

You can check your publishing method for each Configured Publication by clicking on the Options link. In the resulting Options popup, the "Publish Method" should be shown to be either of the 2.
