WPTavern: Storify to Close May 16, 2018, WordPress Plugin Discontinued

WPTavern: Storify to Close May 16, 2018, WordPress Plugin Discontinued

Storify, a service that launched in 2010 and opened to the public in 2013 has announced that it is shutting down version one of its service on May 16th, 2018. Concurrently, its WordPress plugin that is actively installed on more than 2,000 sites has been discontinued.


Storify Plugin is Discontinued

Storify enabled journalists and others to build stories and timelines similar to Twitter and other social networks. The service was acquired by Livefyre in 2013 and became part of Adobe when it acquired Livefyre in 2016.

Storify has disabled new accounts from being created and will delete stories and accounts on May 16th, 2018. Existing users who want to move to Storify 2, a paid feature of Livefyre, will need to purchase a license. The service has published a FAQ that includes directions on how to export content.

New Plugin Opportunity

According to some users, the export process is cumbersome, providing an excellent opportunity for a prospecting developer to create a WordPress plugin that makes the process easier. A search of the WordPress plugin directory for Storify Export produces zero results.

If you know of any methods or plugins that eases the process of exporting content from Storify and importing it to WordPress, please share them in the comments. Also feel free to let us know if you create a plugin that performs this task.
