How do I find out more?

More documentation can be found at the ipushpull Support Centre.

Can I see some live examples of Excel data updating in a blog post?

Sure – this page on the ipushpull WordPress blog includes several examples.

Is there some test data that I can use without having to sign up to ipushpull first?

Yes – we have a demo ipushpull page that is constantly being updated. It’s in the folder DemoExcelUsers and is called BlogSummary. You can embed this in your WordPress page using the following shortcode:

[ipushpull_page folder="DemoExcelUsers" page="BlogSummary" height="325px"]

Can I control which functions are displayed on the ipushpull toolbar?

ipushpull users with a Business or Enterprise account can control the appearance of the toolbar. For more details about these packages please see our Pricing Page.

Instead of my data, my visitors see the error message “You don’t have access to this page”

This means that the ipushpull Page has not been set to Public. A Page has to be Public if you want every visitor to your website to be able to see it.
See this support article for instructions.

Instead of my data, my visitors see the error message “Requested page was not found”

This means that you have made a mistake with the Folder or Page name in your shortcode. Correct the problem and try again.

I've just tested this plugin, I can easily say that it's awesome and no one has preceeded it with its functionality, I've had a little question and the support replied in less than 1 hour and I'm using the free version, thanks Devs.

This plug in works very well indeed. I had a couple of issues with the free version which were quickly resolved by the support team. Only disadvantage is that Mac O/S is not supported. The Enterprise version apparently has alerts - would be good to see some pricing options for individual users that included features like this.

Really good for merging Excel data and gives you way more control. Great for my website especially where I'm using data from different sources. You have to create an account from their website first but it's really worth it.

I found this plugin very useful for displaying my Excel data without needing any extensive coding added on the web server. The support team is very helpful with answering queries and are working very hard to add more features.
