#Pulling PMP Content into Core Publisher by Individual Story

The fastest way to get PMP content into Core Publisher is to find individual stories, and pull them instantly into your site. This has the advantage of allowing you to curate specific stories and put them wherever you want on your site. There are two distinct ways to do select and pull individual PMP stories. We'll cover those first, then we'll show:

##If you know the GUID of a specific PMP story you want

The GUID is a globally unique identifier assigned by the PMP to a story, image, audio, or video. You can find the GUID for a piece of content by using the PMP search engine.

For more on PMP GUIDs, you can also see our documentation on What is a GUID and how to use it.

Assuming you have the GUID of a story you want to pull into Core Publisher:

  1. Click on Find Content in the top navigation, then click the Pull PMP Doc tab. Paste the PMP story GUID into the Search term box:

  1. Click the Get document button. You'll see a green box with a link to the story:

![story from the PMP returned to Core Publisher] (/img/pmp-story-pulled-by-guid.png)

  1. Click the story link and it opens as a web page:

![story from the PMP ready to edit in Core Publisher] (/img/pmp-story-pulled-page.png)

  1. You can now edit the story to assign it to a Category, add Tags, or relate it to a Program. This is the most direct way you can organize specific PMP stories on your Core Publisher pages by Category, Tag, or Program.

##If you don't know the GUID of a specific PMP story, search the PMP

You can search the PMP for stories from inside Core Publisher:

  1. Click on Find Content in the top navigation.

  2. Click on Search PMP docs.

  3. In the Text search box, enter a search term. Use quotation marks if you want to find an exact match.

  4. In the Filter by section, for the Profile select story, unless you are searching for just an image, audio, or video element.

  5. In the Creator and Program dropdown menus, make a selection (like NPR) to narrow the search, or leave the default All to search everything in the PMP.

![PMP content preview in Core Publisher] (/img/pmp-story-pulled-green-box.png)

  1. Click the link to open the story as a Core Publisher post, then the Edit tab. You'll want to add a Category, Tag, and/or Related Program, which add the story to your category, tag, or program pages.

  1. Hit Publish and you're done.

Note that stories pulled from the PMP can't be pushed to NPR or NPROne, since they're already in the NPR system.

Finding stories from PMP Partner websites

Instead of starting with a search for PMP content in Core Publisher, you might begin by finding stories you want on PMP partner websites, like Marketplace, PRI, and NPR. Then do your search using part or all of the story headline.

Options for fine-tuning your search

  • To search just titles, you can enter title:election.
  • If you want a really specific search, you can enter something like title:”election results” which will find only stories with that exact phrase in the title. (Important: if your search term is more than a single word, enclose it in quotes.)
  • To search for stories containing a subject in the body of the story, just enter the subject as a Search term without “title:” in front of the term.
  • In the Tag(s) box you can enter one tag or more separated by a space. This will find all stories so tagged. Tags are more specific than a Text search, so are likely to return fewer stories.
  • You can combine Text search and Tags to filter stories even further.
  • Note also that different producers use tags in different ways, so a search for stories by Tags may produce inconsistent or incomplete results.

Your search may turn up no stories or too many stories. You can adjust your search and hit the Search button again as needed.

Ways to super-fine-tune a PMP search

In the Search term box you can use these prefixes to further narrow the search:

  • title:”search term”
  • teaser:”search term”
  • tags:”search term”
  • content:”search term” (seems to return fewer results that just ”search term”)
  • byline:”name”

Optional: You can also search for content and get GUIDs from the PMP site

You can search for PMP content, and find the GUID for each item you find, on the PMP support site:

Click on Advanced Search to narrow your search to only stories with images, or simply use this url which does the same thing:
