You will see that inside the Settings there is an item called Dilmot.
- Copy some information into your Dilmot account settings
There are two pieces of information you will have to copy from here and paste into your Dilmot account settings:
– Plugin URL
– Application Key
- Fill in some information
– Dilmot account: this is the subdomain you are using in dilmot.com
– Streams category: This is your WordPress category that will be applied to the streams, for example “interviews” or “chats”
After you have done these steps, your plugin is ready to work with your Dilmot.com account. Every time you create a stream in your Dilmot account, a new post will be created, with the same title as the one you defined in Dilmot, and the content of the post will be the stream.
Does this plugin change the stream published in my Dilmot account page?
No. The plugin works independently and your Dilmot page will still display the live stream as usual.
What information is stored in my WordPress site?
When you create the stream in Dilmot, a new post will be created in your WordPress site. The plugin uses custom fields in order to store important information about the stream such as the image url and the status of the stream.
Do I need a special theme to use Dilmot?
It is recommended that you use Dilmot theme that you can download at http://blog.dilmot.com/wp-content/uploads/dilmot/dilmot-theme.zip or that you take some functions from it in order to get the best layout of the stream information into your WordPress site.
Do I have to pay to use Dilmot?
No, there is a free plan that you can use. If you need more professional alternatives, there are other plans available, please check http://www.dilmot.com for more information
