LivePress is a hosted live blogging solution that integrates seamlessly with your WordPress blog.

How do I add a header with an avatar image, time and author's name on updates?

Use the shortcode [livepress_metainfo]. There is a button to automatic add it to the TinyMCE editor. You can use it in 2 ways:

  • Without any attributes. Then the plugin will add the info based on the settings you choose.
  • With the attributes already filled in. This allows you to specify only the elements you would like to appear.

My theme best looks if LivePress tags are placed at some other place

You can disable automatic livepress tags injection, by adding into theme's functions.php this line: define("LIVEPRESS_THEME", true); After that, you must edit theme files and add at places you think best this tags: -- on index and single page, where notification about new posts arrived should appears -- on single page, where livepress widget should appears To fine-tune options, add in CSS file required overrides for #livepress{} selector. Please note, that styles for theme are loaded before styles of plugin, so your overrides should be marked as !important.

How to set different live update background color

Define filter "livepress_background_color", that should return color you need.

Live post title update not working!

Define filter "livepress_title_css_selector", it should return CSS celector, that should be used to get title to update. Filter must be exact for current post, so include post id if need. Default are #post-{post_id} (where {post_id} are current post id).

Javascript files are loaded from strange looking paths with result 404

It seems that you have symlinked plugin directory instead of copying it. To fix this behavior rename config.sample to config and check PLUGIN_SYMLINK value.
