A few weeks ago @blainjones gave me the advice to use EXXP plugin with my WordPress blog for a bit of automation. In case you do not know for a 15% fee on your author rewards, the plug-in will take a newly published article and publish it to your hive account.
Of course, this sounds great almost too good to be true. I had some bad luck just getting the plugin to work. Bad software? No, not yet, I go to the Exxp discord and there have not been any responses for a couple of days. Now I am concerned.
Talk About Bad Luck
Starting out we had some bad luck. Checked the EXXP Discord a few days later, and it turns the person running the program was stuck out of town and was unable to get back to anyone. The problem was fixed and EXXP was up and running again.
You would have thought that I would have been up and running in no time. No, not me I have to overcomplicate things by trying to do them an easier way. I use a WP editing Theme and plugin called Divi. This did not agree with EXXP. I had the fun job of removing Divi from my blog and removing the extra building code placed there by the Divi builder.

There is going to be a learning curve. I will have questions along the way. Naturally, I will make some mistakes. For example, I might have two featured images if I do not set the post properly. Not really having a clear idea of how the post will look in HIve can be a bit of a challenge. We all want our posts to look nice.
Overall not a bad experience. The best part is I do not have to deal with MarkDown language. In WP it is just straight CSS and HTML, so that makes it about 50% faster for me to put a post in WordPress than using a Hive Engine front end.
Let me know in the comments if you would like a step-by-step tutorial, on using EXXP with your WordPress Blog.
