How it works.


Your Merlin DAM becomes a media source from within WordPress, just like the “Wordpress Upload Files” or “Media Library” tab. Select the MerlinX tab from within WordPress after selecting the Media Library.
Easily search, select, and add content to WordPress Media Library and your post.

You can also:

  • Add usage information that’s available on demand or in reports
  • Add usage information at the time of ingest
  • Configure requested information and your picklists to facilitate data entry

Under the Hood-Technical Information

Using it is as simple as adding the plugin within the WordPress Plugin area, as you would for any plugin (MerlinOne will provide the plugin kit to customers that have purchased the functionality.)
