Get Started With Acrolinx for WordPress

Where's My Sidebar?

Once you've installed Acrolinx for WordPress, you can use the Sidebar to check editable content on any pages, posts, or custom posts.

You'll notice the Acrolinx button in the WordPress menu at the very top of the page: If you're editing a page or post, you can click on the Acrolinx button to open the Sidebar.

Sign in to Acrolinx

When you open the Sidebar for the first time, you'll land on a start page where Acrolinx asks you for connection details. The Acrolinx Core Platform does the heavy lifting when it comes to analyzing your content, so you'll need to connect to one before you start checking. Your Acrolinx administrator should’ve given you your Acrolinx URL and sign-in details.
  1. Enter your Acrolinx URL and click CONNECT.

  2. Click SIGN IN to open the Acrolinx sign-in page. A browser window opens where you can enter your sign-in details and confirm the request to access your account.

And you're in! Hello Sidebar!

Change the Interface Language

If you've set your interface language to English, German, French, Japanese, or Swedish, then the Sidebar will also appear in that language. For all other languages, the Sidebar will appear in English.

To change the WordPress interface language, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings General.
  2. Choose your preferred language from the Site Language dropdown.
  3. Save your changes.

You can also change the Sidebar language directly in the Sidebar. Click the User Profile in the slide-out menu of the Sidebar and then ADVANCED to get to the settings.
