Amazing plugin! I really was looking something like this for steemit. Thank you @wordpress-tips :D

Hi, there is a fix available on the plugin wordpress page to make it compatible with the recent Wordpress version, take a look at it!

·

Hi there,
The github repository is back online and I will update the plugin next week.

·
·

Great, there's also a small issue with posts number to display not taking into account the excluded posts.

Will the updated plugin be supported also in the WordPress repo?

·
·
·

Yes, I'll update it there too next week.

·
·
·
·
·

the fix broke my web site? http://ahijackedlife.com

Fatal error: Can't use function return value in write context in /home/content/15/7480515/html/AHIJACKEDLIFE/wp-content/plugins/steemit-feed/steemit-feed.php on line 410

I see the plugin's author, @wordpress-tips, just updated the plugin, perhaps something went wrong?

·
·
·
·
·

i just reinstalled with same results

·
·
·
·

I think you have to remove the old shortcode and add the new one. Here's the new version announcement with detailed instructions and here's the support forum where you can troubleshoot it. Hope that helps! :)

I removed all the shortcode I restored to older version of wordpress I added memory to php to 256 I have tried everything here is my current set up on http://ahijackedlife.com WordPress 4.7.5 running Twenty Sixteen theme.

·

currently this is where its at for me

Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

Got it! So had to update PHP to PHP Version 5.6.27 also had to chase the PHP config file around depending on your setup shared server and then every version they have a new config name which I had originally as

php.ini then looking at the config after adding php.info reveling nothing changing made it

php5.ini then had to upgrade to current version PHP Version 5.6.27

and file is now user.ini to this file you can make changes to up the memory_limit which seemed to need 128 rather than 64

OK thats it working up with Steem Plugins

steemfeed put steem feed on blog
wordpress steem repost blog on steem
woocommerce steem buy sell on woocommerce with steem

Not working for me http://ahijackedlife.com/steemit/

WordPress 4.7.5 running Twenty Sixteen theme

·

Umm not response to my GitHub ticket

·
·

Seems like the developer is on vacation? :(

·
·
·

Patience, patience.

Never mind... just checked, last time the author was active on Steemit was 10 months ago, he never got to creating any other Steemit-wordpress plugins it seems...

In any case, it seems to "work" for me, though in a broken "only displaying posts from 2 months ago" way.

·
·
·
·

I've skimmed through the JS and PHP code... I cannot easily locate the exact point where the problem is, but I might just be tempted to take this project on if @wordpress-tips has left Steemit for good...

This seems WAY too useful to leave to rot in a corner of Steemit.

I'll check to see if anyone else has made a Steemit-Wordpress integration, or if this is the only one. Then I'll check if anyone with actual knowledge of Wordpress plugin coding is interested XS

Hi there, I'm back on Steemit. I will release an updated version next week. If you are interested in becoming a maintainer in the Github repository, let me know.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Welcome back !

I've got a lot of projects underway currently, so though I'd like to be added as a maintainer, I probably won't be too active.

·
·
·
·

ahh ok so looking for another plugin is there a list of steemit plugins here or should i make one!

·
·
·
·
·

There's the SteemTools site, but that's general plugins and websites of any kind making use of Steemit or it's blockchain. not sure if that's what you mean.

There's no collection of plugins for Wordpress, but I checked... there's a total of 3 in existence...

·
·
·
·
·

Yea no others for feed, I could possibly help I spent 15 years as unix admin and network admin so I hacked some code here and there and can help with problems that's my forte really problem solving :) Adding you to my voter rules!!!

K. We can use all the coders we can get :)

And thanks :)

·
·

Hi there, the github respository is back online and I will update the plugin next week.

·
·
·

amazing ! Good Job Mate!!! looking forward to this plugin for wordpress!!!

·
·
·

What's the word?

it is possible to make a like button as in other social networks?

·

If you mean 'voting', yes, I will add this feature soon.

This is great. It would be fantastic to have a WordPress plugin that posts the opposite direction...from WordPress to Steem...I assume that may be much more difficult.
Nice work anyway.

·

Hi @roland.haynes,
Yes that's more complicated but it's in my plans to build it soon (possibly within the next 3 months).
PS. It will be free and open source as all other plugins published in this account.

·
·

Please put me on your list for beta or alpha testers since I am very interested in that functionality. Thanks.

This is awesome! Thank you so much for creating this and I just added it to my steemwho.com project.

There is only one thing I changed and that is on line 193 of steemit-feed.php I put in stripslashes($item->title) since the titles were displaying with \

Great work, I love it!

·

You're welcome :)
Thanx for the tip, I'll fix that in next version.

·

I'm so happy I found this! I'll try it out at luvabi.com
Please add me to your list of beta testers!

·
·

Very Clean Blog you got there good luck with your site.

·
·
·

Thanks! I just got it up so here's hoping for the best. 🍷🍷🍾

This is great! Both free & premium WordPress themes could be found here: https://www.mageewp.com/wordpress-themes/

hi @wordpress-tips, just stopped back to let you know that you were one of my favourite reads today. You can read my comments about your post here

Great job! Thanks for making. Take care. Peace.

I would like to display single post based on particular link.
Will it be possible in the future?

Hi @wordpress-tips, I just installed the plugin and it looks great - the only thing is that it shows all rewards as "$0.00" on all posts when I "show" them. I can "hide" them, but I actually wanted to draw people's attention to the rewards. I'm using Wordpress version 4.7.4. You mentioned you don't support that yet, but I thought I'd let you know.
Also, it would be nice if posts could be selected or excluded by tag, or if even specific posts could be in/excluded.

Thanks so much for this plugin!

Omg omg omg! <3

For clarification, does it embed your entire blog as in everything you see when you click your Blog link on steemit.com or does it just post the posts you write (not resteems etc) I'm newly checking out Steemit at this point btw :)

This will be very helpful. Thanks for the plugin. Wordpress is such an easy platform. It's nice to have a way to easily add Steemit.

This is exactly what we need. Thx

This could really be useful for people that have Wordpress-based blogs and want to feature their steemit posts there, though I expect that many people here don't have a dedicated WP blog. Still can be helpful for those that do, so thanks for making the plugin and sharing it.

·

You're welcome @cryptos. Yes I think it will be helpful to many people with Wordpress websites.

·
·

Hi, my steemit feed stopped showing rewards since the last hard fork. Also I posted today from @honusurf and the feed did not show my last post at all. My website is https://www.honusurf.net I was going to disable displaying the post reward, but am leaving it on now for debugging. I would like to keep the reward showing, please let me know how to fix. Thanks

·
·
·

Why did the github repo go down? That is where I first reported these issues about the steemit feed not working after last hard-fork. I went to update the issue and the repo was just up and gone!

Hi there, The repo is back online and I will update the plugin next week.

·

Wow thanks, that is great news! I will update as soon as I see it!

Hi this Plugins looks really good but I was looking for the plugin and the demo link, but non of the links are working ... have you changed anything which is not yet uploaded in the post ?

This is perfect for our wordpress site! Can't wait to install!

I will give this a go for sure

This is great! Thank you for making this plug-in. It'll save me a bunch of time because I was doing a whole lot of copy/paste/reformat work to publish my Steemit posts on my site manually.

Sweet. I'm interested in also being able to create actual WP Posts from the STEEM blockchain. Checking out the repo now. Do you think that would be a functionality you could see adding to the plugin?

Thank you!

Hi, Great plugin but i can't make it work.

I tried reinstaling the plugin and checked with my host provider if I have the value of 'allow_url_fopen' in my server settings disabled. It's on and they say the problem is something else. Anyone care to help please?

The demo link of this post is broken. It is showing error 404.

I'm really looking for something that I can post from WP to STEEM an schedule auto posts from WP that will post on STEEM without me logging in.

·

Me too. Wp-steem doesn't seem to be working. Let me know if you find any solution.
