WordPress Web3 Syndication Plugin.

in #developer2 months ago (edited)

Project Overview -

Using Wordpress as a Hive front end seems like the obvious key to true #web3 power and decentralization. Everyone could run their own custom Hive front end. This could lead to endless ways of using Hive and put all that power in the hands of individuals.

#Wordpress already has a widely used, vast and trusted marketplace. Why not build into that?

We could then have the tools that enable anyone, anywhere to spin up a Hive front end using WordPress and have even greater access, control and ownership of their content and web3 presence. This process can be very easy or as custom and complex as you need.

The DiggnDeeper Project would like to self fund the beginning and attempt to raise further funds for development of a plugin that can be used to syndicate content across any major blockchain platform such as #Hive or #LBRY or whatever other blockchain platform might show up and become relevant.

I have been using the #Exxp plugin for a very long time. I really like the plugin, but I found myself wanting more features and I think it would be interesting to explore adding additional blockchains to syndicate to.

I have been on the Exxp Discord and asked a few times about these additional feature requests. @howo has responded to say that some of the features were discussed/ developed for a Pro version in the past, but I guess that didn't come to fruition and now they seem to have stepped away from the project. There have been no responses in more recent attempts to discuss this further.

Can I help?

So, now I am looking for a developer or advisor that would be interested in helping me get this started.

I'll start off with my current wish list. I can already see how it may need to be split up, but we'll let the devs figure that out.

Functionality/ feature items:

  • Set beneficiaries for Hive. (This is the most important feature)
  • Allow publishing of pages, not just posts. (Also a priority)
  • Needs to work with blocks and such.
  • 2-way integration - similar to the Exxp plugin.
  • Allow multiple authorized authors to publish from Wordpress.
  • Choose accounts to publish to (and/ or communities).
  • Global update default on/ off and then page/post update on demand. (I think Exxp has this functionality)
  • Use Hive to pay for access to content like paid courses and such.
  • Would it be possible to use Hive Keychain for Hive users to log into WordPress for integration? Could this then be used to make a WordPress site basically a Hive front-end? That would be amazing...
  • Graphics, marketing material...

WordPress, Hive and/or LBRY Developer Needed

I have been looking for a dev on Hive, but now I will look outward also on platforms like Fivrr. I have had good success finding help on my projects on there the past.

Here are the folks that I know have been doing related work:


Open Source License

We will need to pick a good license. It has been a while since I have looked into this so I need a crash course, but I would probably lean toward an MIT license or something very liberal so that a business can take it and re-license it if they wanted.

Not sure. Like I said, I need a tune up on my understanding of this subject.


  • DiggnDeeper Github repo It isn't in any way a source... I just forked the Exxp plugin in an attempt to start updating and working on it. I'm so rusty at coding. I'd rather pay a better person.

If you know of any more relevant sources and/ or people that are interested in a project like this, please let me or them know how to get in touch with them or send them to our Discord channel https://discord.gg/Yp3aXUbtQg


Self Funding the Start

I will fund initial work myself.

I think what I'm looking for immediately is to get the fork on our Github updated and in working order, then I will start pecking away at the Functionality/ Feature Items listed above.

Hive Proposal System

This is intended to be an ongoing and ever evolving project.

This plugin project can be self funded by me, but I would like to step out of my comfort zone and try the proposal system - not anytime soon though. I intend to get it started and rolling on my own as stated above and with volunteers to get the project on its feet and organized. Then as we mature the project and are seen as a value to the Hive blockchain, we will start to put together a proposal.

I like to document everything, so I think I could do a good job of making my lessons work for others to advance on.

Hive Projects


Another funding and incentive source might be to garner delegations from interested people as we grow in reputation with this project.


I have full intentions of standing up my own witness node and such this winter.

I'm wondering if I could build a top tier witness, could I maybe use any proceeds from that to put into this WordPress integration.

Please leave a comment here or join us on Discord: https://discord.gg/5fPatJx

I would really love to have some more input from the community on how I can do this better. I'm just making this all up as I go and I know that there are many of you out there that will have excellent ideas and input.

Thank you.

Thank you for that. That reminds me that I should be Tweeting that link too.

Thank you!

Woah, I love the idea of using WordPress as a Hive front end, WordPress has already built a good reputation in this space while the blockchain is still on the way of building because in the past cryptocurrency was associated with scams and black market stuff.

I hope you can find the right people to build it together @diggndeeper.com

Yes, I would also like to have a better WP plugin too for Hive.

This sounds like a cool idea. A lot of people know about places like Wordpress or Wix so it makes sense that it would be good for Hive's popularity to find a connection to platforms like that since they're also used for blogging.

Interesting perspective. I didn't consider the angle of marketing from such a large platform.

My perspective is that WordPress specifically is #opensource and seems like an easy platform to build a Hive frontend that anyone can use to distribute content from. It can also be so much more than that with Hive integration.

Super cool idea. I definitely feel like the existing tools are quite lacking - unfortunately, while I can set up a Wordpress site, developing for it is not particularly in my wheelhouse. I technically have an understanding of the languages used, but zero experience with it. Hope you're able to find someone who's passionate about dev for Wordpress to help out!

I'm in a similar situation. I can run a server all copy pasta style, and I've played with legacy web tech, but I'm not a coder. I wish I was.

Dear, @diggndeeper.com

May we ask you to review and support our @cryptobrewmaster GameFi proposal on DHF? It can be found here

What is your curation vote about?

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you mean?

What kind of material you vote into, and what is dig deeper?

Oh, I understand.
I look for Open Source and decentralized projects and such. I also try to support Hive marketing specifically.

Oh, you should look the hivecreators project if you are able, they are trying an onboarding + marketing focus that is petty neat, I just saw you on the Discover section of the ecency front end as one of the "big voters online" And you were totally new to me, but is cool, open source and decentralized should be the get go for all projects these days.

This is a great evolved WordPress that's like a better frontend wow, we do have some people in this Blockchain who are good at creating ideas.
