Exporting Single Post Files
Only available on Pro Plans
The single post files contain all the information about your blog including the gallery images that were used for the layout as well as the SEO and text that has been added in the app.
These blog files can be helpful for many reasons such as:
Sharing a blog post to another Narrative user
Having multiple people contribute to a blog post
Working with an assistant to help you blog or review your blog
When a Publish user sends over an exported post file and then imported into your app, you'll be able to continue working on it, review it or make any changes.
How to Export a Single Post File
You can export a sing post file in two slightly different ways.
1. Sign in to your Narrative Publish app
2. Click on the three dots in the lower right of the blog you want to export.
3. Select the "Export Post File" option.
4. A Finder window will open, select the destination where you want to save the blog post.
5. Press "Select" and Narrative will prompt you when the blog post has been successfully exported.
1. Open the blog you would like to export.
2. Head up to the tool bar and click "File", then "Export Post File".
3. A Finder window will open, select the destination where you want to save the blog post.
4. Press "Select" and Narrative will prompt you when the blog post has been successfully exported.
Now your post file should be exported and will be saved with an .npost format to be used only inside Narrative Publish.
How to Import a Single Post File
Now, an exported Narrative Publish post file sitting outside the app is not that useful so let's learn how to import a Narrative blog post.
1. Open Narrative Publish and sign in to the app
2. In the tool bar go "File" and then "Import Post".
4. This will open a finder window, find and select your exported Narrative post file and click "Open".
5. Your blog should now import into your Narrative app followed by this message.
Your post file should now be imported into your Narrative Publish app and contain the cached images (with a red triangle on the top right of the image) which was in the blog posts.
You can remove or re-organize the existing images as you'd like.
If you need to add images that aren't in the gallery, you'll need to relocate the source folder, by clicking the "Locate Folder" button in the gallery section.
