I’m very happy to announce that today, I published the Easy Liveblogs plugin on wordpress.org. It’s a free WordPress plugin that provides your WordPress site with the ability to turn any post into a liveblog.
Liveblogs are a great way to keep your visitors up-to-date quickly. This is useful when covering for example a conference, sports event or breaking news.
The plugin comes with several settings, including a light and dark theme.
The plugin automatically checks for updates, so that your readers don’t have to refresh the page. This is done by an interval based script. You can modify the interval timing in the settings as well.
