How to Live Blog in WordPress


hey guys We’re going to do live blogging with WordPress using a plugin called live blogging I’ve already gone ahead
and install and activate the plugin which has then added a menu option under
my settings navigation so I’m going to pretty much leave
everything how it came out of the box with the poll default
reader you also have the option to use stream using meteor but that requires special configurations so I’m not gonna bother with it you can enable auto updating and then you know what I would modify if I was you is the live blog style I’m going to leave this one as default you know meaning my latest entry will show up at the top what I would somewhat tweak is the style for live blogging entries depending on how your theme
looks you can change the background color you can change the margin you
can add border or whatnot and once you’re done
with that just go ahead and click Save Changes then you need to go in your post and lets add a new post call it live blogging WordPress what you need to do is scroll down and enable live blogging on this post once we do that come up in the right
panel and simply add a description about this event and then add a shortcode called [liveblog] next thing you need to do is just hit publish on this post once you’ve done that you need to go
in the live blog entries area and click adding a new liveblog entry there you can select different liveblog post you have we will
