With our WordPress integration, you can browse and search your Dash assets directly from within WordPress and import them into your pages and into your media library, all without leaving WordPress.

This page explains how to install, configure and use the integration.

Plugin availability

Our plugin is available on self-hosted instances of WordPress (wordpress.org).

The plugin works on both the new block editor (Gutenberg) and the classic editor.

(We are looking to add support for Wordpress.com in the near future)

If the Dash plugin is already installed in your WordPress, skip down to "Using the plugin" below.

Setting up the integration

Enable the integration in Dash

  1. Go to Admin > Integrations and scroll down to the WordPress section.

  2. Click "Configuration options".

  3. Enter your Wordpress admin page URL e.g. https://www.my-wordpress-site.com/wp/wp-admin

  4. Leave this screen open as you'll need the Client ID and Secret Key when you configure the integration in WordPress shortly.

Install the Dash Wordpress plugin

  1. Click here to go to the Dash plugin page on the WordPress plugin directory.

  2. Click "Download" to download a zip of the plugin to your computer.

  3. Follow these steps to install the plugin.

Once successfully installed, you should see Dash as a new menu item at the bottom of the main sidebar:

Configure the plugin

  1. Click the Dash menu item in the main WordPress sidebar.

  2. Here you enter three things:

    1. Your subdomain e.g. https://yoursubdomain.dash.app (the bit in bold - "yoursubdomain" in this example, not the full URL)

    2. The Client ID that you obtained earlier (see "Enable the integration in Dash" above)

    3. The Secret Key that you obtained earlier (see "Enable the integration in Dash" above)

  3. Click "Authenticate with Dash" and follow the usual steps to login to your Dash.

  4. Your Dash is now connected to your WordPress!

โ„น๏ธ Each Wordpress account connects to one Dash account. All your WordPress users of the plugin will be able to see any assets that the user you logged into Dash has permissions to view (in the final step above).

Using the plugin

  1. Add a new block using either the "โž•" button in the top menu, or from the โž• button on a new line.

  2. Choose "Image"

  3. In the image selection box that appears, choose "Insert Media from Dash"

  4. You will now be able to browse all of your Dash assets.

  5. Use the search bar to search for any information about your assets that you know, or just scroll to browse.

  6. Select the desired image, and choose from any preset sizes that you have already created in Dash, if you don't want to import the full size original image.

  7. Press Select to insert the image into your page.

You now have access to all the usual inline image editing tools that WordPress provides. The image has now been imported into your WordPress media library and is available to use again.
