The Po.et WordPress Plugin allows you to automatically submit your blog posts to Po.et. Once you install and configure it, every time you post a new blog entry it will automatically be posted through Po.et's Frost API to the Po.et Network.

How to Install

From the WordPress Plugin Directory

The Official Po.et WordPress Plugin can be found here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/po-et/

From this repository

Go to the releases section of the repository and download the most recent release.

Then, from your WordPress administration panel, go to Plugins > Add New and click the Upload Plugin button at the top of the page.

From source

You will need Phing and Git installed to build from source. To complete the following steps, you will need to open a command line terminal.

Clone the Github repository:

git clone https://github.com/poetapp/wordpress-plugin.git

From within the checked out repository, run:

phing package

The packaged zip file will be available under the build directory which is created under your locally cloned git repository.

Badge

Place the shortcode [poet-badge] anywhere in your article to display the Po.et Badge as proof that the article was timestamped on the Po.et Network and anchored to the Bitcoin blockchain.

Developers

The Po.et WordPress plugin welcomes additions from developers. To ensure code is consistent and that all developers can focus on building great features rather than deciphering various coding styles, the Po.et WordPress Plugin adheres to the WordPress coding standards.

To ensure your code is formatted the WordPress way, you can run the PHP code sniffer using the WordPress coding ruleset. There are various ways to install both PHPCS and the WordPress coding ruleset, but the easiest method is to install it globally using Composer. Assuming you have Composer and PHPCS installed and available from the command line, run the following from a terminal (assuming you are on Linux or a *nix derivative):

composer global require wp-coding-standards/wpcs
phpcs --config-set installed_paths ~/.composer/vendor/wp-coding-standards/wpc

It is also assumed you have Composer installed in your home directory, so you may need to adjust the installed_paths directive to match your Composer installation directory.
