Support » Plugin: WebSub/PubSubHubbub » Can't Seem To Get it Working :(

  • Resolved ianbee


    I’m trying to set up PubSubHubbub (PUSH) with WordPress so I can allow updates to be seen in real time, without refresh. I have read many, many tutorials online on how to implement this plugin with WordPress but none have got it working for me yet. Here is what I have done so far:

    1) I Downloaded the official PUSH plugin for WordPresss

    2) I Created a Hub using Superfeedr with the following settings:

    3) I Added “” under “Hubs” in my PubSubHubbub WordPress plugin settings.

    At this point, I am unsure of what to do next in order to get this integrated with an RSS feed and allow automatic real time updates for the viewer. And I am also wondering if PUSH only works with RSS Feeds or if it could work with other content like blog posts within a loop as well.

    Here is my test website:

    Here is the URL for my feed:

    Any help would sincerly be appreciated. 🙂

    You setup everything like it should be. If one of your subscriber uses a PubSubHubbub enabled client, he will get your updates in real-time.

    Thanks for the reply, so it’s not possible to get the updates in real time if you’re not a subscriber?

    All I wanted to do was make the content have automatic updates without refresh via an RSS feed. Much like the “Happening Now” section of this website: (It automatically updates without a refresh.. for all viewers).

    So is this even possible with the the PubSubHubbub WordPress plugin? Could I get the same automatic rss updater like that website, with this plugin?

    I think you need a simple JavaScript snippet that checks for new Posts and refreshes your website. PubSubHubbub is more like a notification system. It pings a hub everytime you write a new blogpost… nothing more, nothing less… It is similar to WordPress’ update system
