Preguntas frecuentes

For all the questions related to Steem please see:

What’s the difference between and wordpress

WordPress is the blogging platform on which you run steempress. is a business providing hosting for wordpress blogs.

Do I need a business account ?

No, you can use any web hosting provider to host your blog and use steempress. is providing a free hosting service but to use plugins you have to upgrade to the highest plan which is
very expensive compared to other plans.

We recommend the webhosting plan from ovh : but you are free to use any other host.

We also recommend you to pick the “one click wordpress install” option which will directly install wordpress on your

What kind of server do I need

It all depends on your blog and how much it’ll be visited, but you really shouldn’t need a lot of data.

For instance the “personal” plan on ovh with 100gb of disk space is more than enough for most of the use cases.

Do I need a domain name

No. Although having one is way better for your SEO. And generally more pretty.

Nobody says “hey have you heard of ?” they say “hey have you heard of ?”

Can I use a free domain or a subdomain ?


How can I protect the SEO of my website/will the SEO of my blog be affected ?

The delay feature allow you to publish first on your blog and then publish to steem after a few days/hours/minutes (you decide the delay). Which means that google and other search engines will index your blog first and tag as a duplicate. And so your blog’s seo ranking won’t be hurt.
We recommend a 7 days delay for maximum security.

I did not get a vote on my article, is something wrong ?

You will not automatically get a vote, consider a vote as a tip for producing good content with us. You don’t expect
a tip, but you are happy when you get one. The same mentality applies.

Who do I talk to about business and parnerships ?

Find @fredrikaa on the official steempress discord and talk to him

the discord can be found here :

Who do I talk to about technical details, bugs etc ?

don’t talk to @howo directly unless it’s a very specific and urgent problem, instead feel free to use the
help and suggestion channels.

Still on the discord :

I published my post on wordpress but it was not published on steem what’s up ?

Check the plugin settings to make sure that you have set everything correctly. you should see

“Connectivity to the steem server : Ok
Username/posting key : Ok

If that’s ok, look at the delay, did you put any delay ? And is that delay over ?

If all of that checks, then something went wrong, come in the #help channel and we’ll figure it out.

Can I use this on my phone

We got that question a lot so I feel like we need to answer it.

No. You need a wordpress blog which needs to be hosted. So you can buy hosting with your phone and manage it
still from your phone but you’ll have to go by the “hosting” section and get a blog there.

At what percentages are the beneficiaries set ?


Benefactor rewards

Like most other apps on Steem, including esteem, dtube, dsound, dmania and zappl to name a few, Swe use benefactor rewards to help run and develop SteemPress. The benefactor reward is currently set to 15%. To compensate, SteemPress is able to support original authors who post quality content with our Steem account @steempress-io.


Doesn’t Work

Initially I had some pre-existing posts that I wanted published. Thanks to dev help, used Bulk Actions in WP to manually push these to be published on STEEM. I manually publish 3 posts, two of them eventually get published 5 days apart. The third hasn’t published at all 10 days later.

Now that my “Delay Post” timer has arrived for all my newer posts, none of my new posts have been published. Delay value is set at 7200 (5 days). Have articles that haven’t been published which are upwards of 21 days old.

Needs to have some kind of local transaction log to see which articles have been submitted for publishing to the blockchain. Will continue testing a possibility on my end as to why this is occurring.

Not Perfect but Very Good! And Developers are constantly improving it!

This plugin works wonders and save me a lot of time! Steemit is an awesome platform but there are still pretty bare. Hence, being able work directly from WP and get my posts published on both platforms is a major boost for productivity.

While it’s a fantastic plugin it’s not yet perfect for a few reasons:

1) This plugin is very new. Steem is very new! This is pretty much still in a “work in progress” project.

The devs are working very hard and responsive to feedbacks!)

2) There are some difference in the presentation and backend structure about Steemit that makes it more difficult to be 100% seamless.

I believe that with more users’ feedback .. and given some time it will evolve

Well done Howo and Fred!!

Finally! And it works like a charm

Even though, right now, this plugin only pushed my post on my blog unto the Steem blockchain for added exposure and monetization it works like a charm. I haven’t encountered any bugs and I’m very pleased with the result. It’s incredibly easy to setup.

I’m quite excited for the future versions of this plugin.

Great Intermediate Solution

I love the figure where it enables to post in both Steemit and my own blog. With SteemPress plugin, now I can easily schedule my post. However, there are still bugs between the markdown and HTML conversation when publishing a post such as missing open header code, extra spacing <br/>, extra paragraph closing code </p>. I hope this can be resolved as soon as possible. Keep it up!

My Likes and Dislike about Steempress

What I like using steempress in writing blog from my wordpress is that it automatically post directly to steemit blog post the same time or can be delay, provided you set up the timing accordingly.

Steempress also upvote my post on which is very helpful because I am new on steemit and need some help. There are other apps that we can use to post on steemit too.. But those does not do any upvote.. I have tried a few. So far, I stick to Dlive and steempress for now.

I can set or schedule time and date. – it means I can write in advance and arrange timing for each blog.

Writing is easy on blog (specially me, I am sucks in writing.. I am still trying hard).

What I dislike about steempress is.. I cannot edit anymore my post once it is publish on steemit. The solution to this is .. Review, review and review the final blog roll before posting.

It does not support html code from affiliates. So take note on this one. Use links instead of html.

That is what I notice so far.

All in all, I love steempress.
Thank you for having you steempress on steemit blog and wordpress. It makes my world easier.
