WordPress blogs submission

BlogUpp plugin is meant for blogs on WordPress.org. Alternatively, the widget can be added to WordPress.org blogs by dragging a Text/HTML widget in blog's sidebar and inserting the short widget-code provided at blogupp.com.

BlogUpp vs WordPressBlogs hosted at WordPress.com typically allow static widgets only (i.e. no JavaScript or iframes allowed) and respectively BlogUpp generates a tailored static widget for WordPress.com blogs. In this context we need your contribution to ask WordPress.com to support the interactive widget for better user experience.

The widget generated by BlogUpp can be installed easily onto your WordPress.com blog simply by clicking the link "Click here and paste the code into a text widget on your blog" (it's under widget-code box at blogupp.com). The widget code should be added into a new Text/HTML widget. Here's how:

 • Go to WordPress admin panel > "Appearance" > "Widgets";
 • Locate in the list of "Available Widgets" the one that writes "Text" / "Arbitrary text or HTML";
 • Drag it to the sidebar of your blog, and enter in it the widget code. Done.

While using the widget on WordPress.com blogs - please refresh browser cache in order to retrieve your widget approval status (one time action after blog curation).

WordPress.com blogs usually are automatically OpenID-enabled, and you could access your analytics panel straight away (provided the blog is already approved). In case of custom domain blogs with WordPress.org, the access to analytics panel and Premium area could be done simply by installing the OpenID plugin, then in plugin's settings select to enable OpenID and specify the blog owner. That's it!

Wow. Unfortunatly, I can't pay for Customized CSS in WordPress.com... So, i can't add in CSS code, even if I paste it through the Text widget in <style> tag.

Is there a method how to resolve this problem?

Thanks for the comment.
The widget can be added to any Wordpress blog on custom domains, just by using a short iFrame code.
On the other hand, for the blogs hosted at WordPress.com it can be used if adding a snipped of code to CSS Stylesheet Editor.

Indeed, for the time being customized CSS is a paid WordPress upgrade. We at BlogUpp! are doing our best to provide WordPress.com bloggers a widget available for free blogs too.
Please check back later.

Por favor, use Google Translate widget para traducir las indicaciones en cualquier idioma.

On the platform of wordpress.com it is possible to add only the second part of code in text widget.

@hmel, you are right - that's actual for wordpress.com hosted blogs only, whereas for custom domain blogs, there should be no constraints.

I am totally lost here. Does this mean I cannot obtain a widget for my wordpress blog?

@d1miami, in short - sure you can, our widget is WordPress friendly.
