Tools Open Source Sync WordPress


Sync WP Steem Comments can sync Steemit and WordPress comments.

What is the project about?

Before I found Steemit, I am a WordPress blog writer. I write blog on my WordPress site for more than 2 years. Now I am moving to Steemit, but I also post my articals in my WordPress site. But I found a question: some readers leave comments after my post asking the same question on the two different sites. So I must answer them twice. I think there are a lot of blog writers have this problem too. So I develop a wordpress plugin to solve this. Sync WP Steem Comments can sync Steemit and WordPress comments.

How to use this plugin

Step 1: download zip file from github.

Step 2: install this plugin in WordPress, and activate plugin.

Step 3: setup the plugin, input the author name and your PRIVATE POSTING KEY.

You can input the author name and your PRIVATE POSTING KEY in the setting page.

Step 4: input permlink of Steemit article in the post/update article page in WordPress and save the article.

You can input the Steemit article permlink in the WordPress posting article page.

Step 5: everything done.

Now it is something like this:

You can find this web page on :TSON.COM and this page is connected with how to use steemjs read comments from blockchain.

Roadmap and what have I done

I have a detailed plan for this plugin.

1. Connect WordPress articles and Steemit articles

I need extend WordPress articles let them have an additional field to save the permlink of the Steemit articles. In this way when we publish a comment beside a WordPress article, the comment also can be send to Steemit article. Besides when we load the WordPress article this plugin also can pull comments from Steemit article.
Status: Already finished in Version 0.1

2. Pull the comments from Steemit to WordPress

When we request the WordPress articles, show the Steemit comments below the articles.
In version 0.1, Steemit comments will display before the Wrodpress comments. Also the apperance of the Steemit comments is different from the WordPress comments. This is a simple but useful way. On the other hand, I also can insert Steemit comments into WordPress’s database. In this way, Steemit comments can look exactly the same as the WordPress comments. But every comments needs one more field to connected with the Steemit comment, this can lead to more pressure on the WordPress server.
Please give me feedback. I’ll decide whether to upgrade the method or not.
Status: Finished in Version 0.1, but maybe need upgrade.

3. Push WordPress comments into Steemit

After version 0.1, I’ll complete this function. There are two way to do this task:

  • Use the author name and PRIVATE POSTING KEY push the comments.
  • Use my account to push the comments to your post.

First I think the two ways have no different, but if the users use my account to push the comments, I can get the data. From these data, I can know which article is popular in WordPress but not in Steemit. Then I can recommond these articles to other users.

4. Automatic generate WordPress article

After the article is published in Steemit, the article can be transmited to WordPress in one click.

5. Sync the WordPress and Steemit articles publish

THIS FUNCTION IS NOT RECOMMOND, because this function can be used to produce a greate amount of junk articles.
If users want to have this function, There are another plugin named SteemPress. As the last step, I’ll make sure this plugin can be working together whit SteemPress.

Sync WP Steem Comments 是一个可以同步Wordpress和Steemit上评论的插件。



Step 1:从github上下载zip文件。

Step 2: 安装并激活插件。

Step 3: 设置插件,输入Steemit用户名及 PRIVATE POSTING KEY。

如果需要,输入Comments Div的ID
对于多数用户来说,Comments Div的ID,不需要设置,直接留空即可。
如果无法正常显示,再对其进行设置,设置方法为查看博客页的HTML代码,看评论最外层的Div的id是什么,将此id填入到Comments Div ID中。
你可以在设置页面输入用户名及PRIVATE POSTING KEY。
注:现阶段PRIVATE POSTING KEY可以不填写,现在插件还没有用到此功能

Step 4: 在文章发布(更新)页面输入Steemit文章的permlink,然后保存文章。

Step 5: 完成。
