How To Use Grammarly In WordPress

In my post, I show you how to use Grammarly in WordPress.

Grammarly is a writer’s assistant tool to check grammar and spelling errors in your blog content.

Before publishing blog posts, you should proofread your content. Grammarly helps you check your content.

Grammarly has free and paid options. The free option offers basic grammar and spelling suggestions.

Grammarly’s paid options offer advanced writing suggestions.

I use Grammarly (*Paid Link) on my WordPress website. I check blog posts for errors with Grammarly before I publish every article.

Let’s get started.

How To Use Grammarly

Grammarly is not part of WordPress. It is a browser extension that integrates with the WordPress editor.

Once Grammarly has access to the WordPress editor, it highlights errors and offers corrections within the editor.

You can upload documents for grammar and spell checks on your Grammarly account dashboard.

Step One – Install Grammarly

Go to (*Paid Link), and click Get Grammarly.

You can install Grammarly on Chrome, Brave, Safari, Firefox, and Edge browsers.
