  • Publish your old WordPress post to the Steem blockchain

What is Steem?

Steem is a blockchain-based social media platform where anyone can earn rewards. An example platform built on top of Steem block chain is Steemit.

What is Cryptocurrency?

A cryptocurrency (or crypto currency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange using cryptography to secure the transactions and to control the creation of additional units of the currency. Wikipedia

Note

You will require your Steem PRIVATE POSTING KEY for this plugin to work. Your PRIVATE POSTING KEY is NOT stored on our servers.

The plugin will automatically get a 15% curation reward from the Steem post created with this plugin for the use of development and maintenance cost with the beneficiary going to @steemful. (This is the brand I created for my projects related to Steem blockchain)

Limitations

  • No support yet for scheduled posts but it will be supported on upcoming releases.
  • Conversion of post content to Markdown may be off sometimes.

Support

Please support me by following me on Steem @recrypto or if you feel like donating, that would really help a lot on my future Steem developments around WordPress ecosystem. 🙂

Installation

Minimum Requirements

  • PHP version 5.2.4 or greater (PHP 5.6 or greater is recommended)
  • MySQL version 5.0 or greater (MySQL 5.6 or greater is recommended)

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of WordPress Steem, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “WordPress Steem” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our eCommerce plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

Updating

Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

Reviews

Wonderful plug-in!

Very easy and cool!
I reviewed this plug-in in my own language.(Korean;https://steemit.com/wordpress/@junn/398).

I also have one suggestion :

Show error message – I don`t know whether this is the exact cause, but when I put a word started with Capital letter in ‘Tag’ box, this plugin didn’t work.

It works!

Automatically posts your wordpress post to steemit!
Very cool and needed!

I do have some suggestions:

– Default setting to always post to steemit
– Be able to remove widget on wordpress posting page (via screen options)
– Option to automatically add blog post link to bottom of steemit post
– Set default steem categories

Plugin is Ready and Stable

The plugin is stable and working. The plugin is ready to be used on PRODUCTION websites.

I just made a review on my own plugin as the 1 Star review is totally misinforming users with no specific points stated. (I guess that user is trolling around if you look at his reviews history)

Just Not Ready

It isn’t even ready for a first read-through of the script. I thought I had it set up, turns out it isn’t. Things are missing and it’s time this got repaired.
