GigaOM Liveblog


GigaOM built this plugin during a 1-day hackathon on August 7, 2012 as a collaborative team building excercise. The goal was to produce a fully functional, scalable solution that could be used for future events that should be live-blogged.


  1. Upload the go-liveblog folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Place [go_liveblog start_date="YYYY-mm-dd H:i:s" end_date="YYYY-mm-dd H:i:s"] in a post or page. ex. [go_liveblog start_date=”2012-08-01 09:00:00″ end_date=”2012-08-31 11:30:00″]
