What’s the difference between wordpress.com and wordpress

WordPress is the blogging platform on which you run steempress.
Wordpress.com is a business providing hosting for wordpress blogs.

Do I need a wordpress.com business account ?

No, you can use any web hosting provider to host your blog and use steempress.
Wordpress.com is providing a free hosting service but to use plugins you have to upgrade to the highest plan which is
very expensive compared to other plans.

We recommend the webhosting plan from ovh : https://www.ovh.com/ but you are free to use any other host.

We also recommend you to pick the “one click wordpress install” option which will directly install wordpress on your
server.

What kind of server do I need

It all depends on your blog and how much it’ll be visited, but you really shouldn’t need a lot of data.

For instance the “personal” plan on ovh with 100gb of disk space is more than enough for most of the use cases.

Do I need a domain name

No. Although having one is way better for your SEO. And generally more pretty.

Nobody says “hey have you heard of 173.245.234.11 ?” they say “hey have you heard of mysuperblog.com ?”

Can I use a free domain or a subdomain ?

Yes.

How can I protect the SEO of my website/will the SEO of my blog be affected ?

The delay feature allow you to publish first on your blog and then publish to steem after a few days/hours/minutes (you decide the delay). Which means that google and other search engines will index your blog first and tag steemit.com as a duplicate. And so your blog’s seo ranking won’t be hurt.
We recommend a 7 days delay for maximum security.

I did not get a vote on my article, is something wrong ?

You will not automatically get a vote, consider a vote as a tip for producing good content with us. You don’t expect
a tip, but you are happy when you get one. The same mentality applies.

Who do I talk to about business and parnerships ?

Find @fredrikaa on the official steempress discord and talk to him

the discord can be found here : https://discord.gg/W2KyAbm

Who do I talk to about technical details, bugs etc ?

don’t talk to @howo directly unless it’s a very specific and urgent problem, instead feel free to use the
help and suggestion channels.

Still on the discord : https://discord.gg/W2KyAbm

I published my post on wordpress but it was not published on steem what’s up ?

Check the plugin settings to make sure that you have set everything correctly. you should see

“Connectivity to the steem server : Ok
Username/posting key : Ok

If that’s ok, look at the delay, did you put any delay ? And is that delay over ?

If all of that checks, then something went wrong, come in the #help channel and we’ll figure it out.

Can I use this on my phone

We got that question a lot so I feel like we need to answer it.

No. You need a wordpress blog which needs to be hosted. So you can buy hosting with your phone and manage it
still from your phone but you’ll have to go by the “hosting” section and get a blog there.

At what percentages are the beneficiaries set ?

15%

Benefactor rewards

Like most other apps on Steem, including esteem, dtube, dsound, dmania and zappl to name a few, Swe use benefactor rewards to help run and develop SteemPress. The benefactor reward is currently set to 15%. To compensate, SteemPress is able to support original authors who post quality content with our Steem account @steempress-io.

Reviews

My Likes and Dislike about Steempress

What I like using steempress in writing blog from my wordpress is that it automatically post directly to steemit blog post the same time or can be delay, provided you set up the timing accordingly.

Steempress also upvote my post on steemit.com which is very helpful because I am new on steemit and need some help. There are other apps that we can use to post on steemit too.. But those does not do any upvote.. I have tried a few. So far, I stick to Dlive and steempress for now.

I can set or schedule time and date. – it means I can write in advance and arrange timing for each blog.

Writing is easy on blog (specially me, I am sucks in writing.. I am still trying hard).

What I dislike about steempress is.. I cannot edit anymore my post once it is publish on steemit. The solution to this is .. Review, review and review the final blog roll before posting.

It does not support html code from affiliates. So take note on this one. Use links instead of html.

That is what I notice so far.

All in all, I love steempress.
Thank you for having you steempress on steemit blog and wordpress. It makes my world easier.

Love,

It will really help to protect SEO. Thank you for this very useful plugin, easy to use. Also thank you for your great help with the support.

Eklenti steem blockchainine wordpress üzerinden yazı gönderimini kolaylaştırıyor. Birçok faydalı özelliğe sahip. Özellikle yazıları bekletme özelliğini çok beğendim. Hızlı ve kullanışlı bir eklenti. Ekibe desteklerinden dolayı çok teşekkürler.

Wicked time saver!

For months now, I’ve been writing my Steemit posts using my WP editor. I’d then do a copy/paste of the text, add the graphics by hand, double check the coding… you get the picture.

With this plugin, I just check to make sure I have the little check box checked that says, “publish to steem” then hit publish and voila! A blog post on my WP and Steemit blogs at the same time!

Thanks so much for creating this plugin – it’s a wicked time saver!

Great start!

For a new plugin this one is off to a great start right out of the door.

Looking forward to seeing more features and functionality added!
