Dilmot live Q&A chats

Description

Dilmot is a web participation platform. With this plugin you can host live moderated conversations between a guest speaker and the audience. It will allow your readers to send the questions through a simple form. And you can also grab questions from the Twitter hashtag of your choice.
The idea behind this plugin is to integrate the capabilities of the Dilmot platform inside WordPress, so you can seamlessly get the chats inside the WordPress site.

Troubleshooting

After I configure the data in both WordPress install and Dilmot account, the stream created does not create a post

Verify that you have copied the data correctly. You may need to regenerate the API key in the plugin configuration in WordPress. In case you do, please make sure that you copy it to the Dilmot account configuration, and save it afterwards.

Make sure that you have your WordPress debug configuration, in the wp-config.php file, with “false” value. It should be like that for production environments in any case.
