WP.com Cross-Post is a free plugin that syncs your WordPress.com blog with your self-hosted WordPress site automatically, every day.
It creates posts on your self-hosted WordPress site by fetching them from WordPress.com through the API and publishes them automatically.
This plugin is customizable via filters. The available filters are:
wpcom_crosspost_author_email: Pass the email address of the user to use as author of the cross-posts;
wpcom_crosspost_post_data: Filter the data before to create the cross-post;
wpcom_crosspost_sync_frequency: Change the frequency of the scheduled event to check for new posts;
wpcom_crosspost_api_call_params: Filter the data sent to WordPress.com via API to retrieve posts;
wpcom_crosspost_sinc_from: Change the “from” date to retrieve posts from WordPress.com. Default “yesterday”.
Google Duplicated Content
This plugin is compatible with Yoast SEO to prevent duplicated content. Make sure to have Yoast SEO installed and active, the plugin will automatically filter the post URL and set the canonical cross-domain URL pointing to its original WordPress.com permalink.
Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of this plugin, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.
