WP Native Articles Pro

The BEST Premium Facebook Instant Articles for WordPress plugin

Major Updates
– 1.3.2 – Content Parser V2 Released.
– 1.3.0 – Placement Manager, Crawler Ingestion & WP Recipe Maker Support.
– 1.2.5 – Specify different content for your Instant Article.
– 1.2.2 – WP Bakery Visual Composer Support.

Using the Premium plugin you can connect your site to Facebook via the API method and publish instant articles directly (opposed to via the RSS feed that Facebook only scrapes a few times an hour). Publishing instant articles via the API also enables access to view the article status; if Facebook has any problems parsing the content or it’s not showing correctly you’ll be able to see instantly without ever leaving WordPress. You’ll also have full access to all Instant Article analytics directly within your WordPress dashboard. A widget on the Admin dash provides an aggregated overview of how all your articles are doing, well on any post edit screen you can see stats for a particular post, both are broken down by browsing device and can be segmented by time frame. For a full comparison check out our features table.

Our premium support is here to help if you have any issues and also provide advice on any minor customisation you might need. All code is done to WordPress coding standards and is full of hooks and actions to make it as customisable as possible. Full documentation is available can be found here. And have we mentioned our 30 day refund policy?

Other Features

Not quite convinced? Here is a list of other cool minor features to try and sway your favour! Also checkout the roadmap below to see what’s coming up.

  • Advanced Templating – Any template used in the plugin can be overridden in your theme, allowing you to make changes without worry about losing them at the next update (it also reminds you so in the admin!).
  • Custom Post Types – Want to publish instant articles from a custom post type? Or multiple custom post types? Not a problem.
  • Date Variables – Use dates in the Copyright or Credit fields? You can now use dynamic placeholders so you don’t have to worry about updating them.
  • Other Plugins – We’ve tested it with loads of other plugins to ensure it correctly parses as many shortcodes and custom content possible.
  • Multisite – Yep, got that too.
  • Option Override Warning – Overriding an option via a filter? We’ll remind you in the admin.
  • CRON Syncing – When publishing instant articles to Facebook via the API you can set it to do it in the background via CRON, this ensures you post saving times stay as fast as possible.
  • WP Bakery Visual Composer Compatible – Yep, since version 1.2.2


We’re making refinements, fixing bugs and applying security patches constantly. On top of that these are the major features we’re hoping to add within the next 6 months and the rough order that we hope to add them in.
