How to add a large number of posts to my WordPress site?

If you have a significant amount of articles, manually adding them to your site can be time-consuming. To simplify the process, you can try the following methods:

1. Using plugins

There are several plugins available for WordPress that can help you import data from an Excel table. Your articles must be organized in a specific way in a spreadsheet, and then imported using the plugin. These plugins can be found online. However, there are some potential drawbacks to this method:
– Many hosting providers restrict the execution time for scripts, so the import process may fail.
– If your file contains a large number of posts, the import could take a long time.
– Not all plugins will allow you to import all the necessary fields (such as SEO titles, creation date, publication date, etc.).
– If the article text contains invalid characters, importing the file could also result in errors.

2. Importing using an XML file

WordPress has a built-in feature to export and import articles in XML format. You can enter the necessary data into an XML file and then import it. However, this method has the same drawbacks as the previous method. Additionally, editing an XML file can be inconvenient, so it may be difficult for some users.

3. Directly importing into the database

This method is more difficult, but also the most effective. The data is imported into the database using a built-in function on the PHPMyadmin panel. The main benefit of this method is that it allows for importing a large amount of data. In one of our projects, we imported over 250,000 articles.
