Would you like to learn how to show your last Steemit blog posts on your website or WordPress blog using Steemit Widgets because this looks even better than using a RSS feed?

How to Show your Steemit Posts on your Website?

Yesterday, I showed you how to display a profile widget on your website or WordPress blog and you might be interested to read this post first: How to Add a Steemit Profile Widget on your Website?

Today, we are going to use the same website to generate code that will display a nice feed from our Steemit blog, and I like it very much, I think it looks far better than using an RSS feed.

How to Show your Steemit Posts on your Website?

First, go to the website where you can get the code from, which is Steemit Widgets.

It was created by @mkt.

Steemit widgets

You can click the "Demo" button to see all the widgets that you can make for your website, or click the "Generator" button to follow this tutorial.

This is a direct link to the generator: https://mktcode.github.io/steemit-widgets/generator.html

What you have to do is select "Blog" for the widget, enter your Steemit username, and change the color if you wish. Then you can unselect the options that you don't want or change the values for the border and border radius. You can select the number of posts you want as well.

Just below the form is a preview where you can see how this will look like on your website.

Note that the height of the image is a bit too short and I will show you how to make it perfect.

The code you have to use is shown just after.

The first little piece of code has to be placed where you want to show the widget, a post or a page.

<div id="steemit-widgets-blog"></div>

The second longer code is what is calling the data from Steemit and the cosmetic of the widget.

It has to be placed just before the </body> tag on the HTML page where you place the widget.

If your website is in HTML, you may want to ask your web developer to add the code for you.

This is how I did it on my WordPress blog.

I created a new page with some text at the beginning using the "Visual" editor.

Steemit widgets

Then, I clicked the "Text" tab to replace these xxxx by the actual code.

This code.

<div id="steemit-widgets-blog"></div>

It's where the widget will show.

Then, you need to use a WordPress plugin that will allow you to add a head and footer code. I am using "Embed Code" and it is showing below the page editor.

It's where you enter the long code that the widget generator gives you.

Now, the height of the image is set at "250px" by default.

Steemit widgets

Replace this number by "300px" and the image will show perfectly.

This is the result of the newly created page on my WordPress blog.

You can see this page here: http://www.pantika.com/steem-blog

I used a different blog for this tutorial because I didn't want to have the profile widget already installed. I believe there will be some tweaking to do when using the profile widget and the blog widget together on the same page. If it is the case, I will do another tutorial.

Using the same process, you can also show your Steemit feed, the New, Hot and Trending feeds.

I hope that this post is useful for you.

·

I am glad it is useful for you @usamamsd.

That's definitely a handy way to do it through Wordpress and I quite like the design of those Steemit widgets. Although they could do with a little bit more padding around the post IMO.

I am glad that you like it @rezoanulvibes.

Awesome stuff. I do presume this is for blogs made in wordpress.org, not .com. Is that correct?

·

Yes self-hosted blogs. Not sure if this can be done on the .com.

This is great info, I am just wondering how to make it work with the built in program that godaddy uses
I jsut pout in a random title then pasted the generated code I tried it two ways one with the widget code and the content code, . I have almost no grasp of html,, every try this with godaddy it always says this in the same screenshot " You can use this to inject HTML, CSS, & JavaScript into your site between the <Body tags."

Thank you for commenting. Outside WordPress, I'm not sure how it can work. Maybe you will have a better answer from the developer.
