Creating HTML Articles
Adobe has made several really useful improvements to Acrobat DC with the May 2016 release. In this short course, we'll start by looking at the new user interface, which includes a dark gray theme consistent with Creative Cloud. Long-time users of Acrobat for Mac will be happy to see there's now a PDFMaker macro for Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 that supports creating hyperlinks. There's also a more modern scanner interface that makes it easier to scan documents, new and improved touch-friendly commenting features, including sort by page or color, plus support for Box, OneDrive, SharePoint for Mac, and more. Of course, you'll need to be on the continuous update plan or have a Creative Cloud subscription for most of these updates, although a few are available with the classic plan as indicated on the outline. To verify you have the latest available updates, choose Check for Updates from the Help menu. So let's take a look at what's new and improved with Acrobat DC.

Integrating the WordPress CMS with DPS
WordPress is the world's most popular content management system. Although this free and open source application started as blog software, it years ago outgrew that limited description. Now it manages online content for some of the world's most recognizable brands. It also manages the content within many DPS apps and publications through an integration with Adobe Digital Publishing Solution. That integration is accomplished via a plugin that bridges your public or private self-hosted WordPress installation to publish. adobe. com. Here I have a stock, out-of-the-box WordPress site. The bridge plugin is freely available, so let's install that by going to Plugins, Add New. We'll then search for digital publishing tools, and this first option, Digital Publishing Tools for WordPress by Studio Mercury, is what we're looking for. So, I'll click Install Now. It'll download and install the package of the plugin to my website, and then I just have to activate it. Once I do, you can see the plugin is active here, and I have a new item on my sidebar, Digital Publishing. If I click on that, it takes me into the Digital Publishing interface, and we'll go through these options in the very next video.
