DailyBrief is designed to solve two fundamental problems many new WordPress users find themselves with; first what to send people subscribing to a email newsletter and second when they first begin to publish on the blockchain; The dreaded SPAM label. Producing too many posts daily on steem hits a cultural bias many anti-abuse teams adhere to “More than 4 posts a day is always SPAM”.
DailyBrief compiles a summary of all posts made during a particular day complete with featured images, meta information, and excerpts. It also creates a table of contents, inserts headers and footers with optional macros that auto-fill in article counts, tags and categories used in the processed articles.
Important: The plugin is primarily intended to be used alongside Exxp the WordPress to Hive integration solution. If you want to publish your daily briefs to steem you need to install Exxp first.
Note: This plugin requires PHP 5.6 or higher to be activated.
Note: Automated tests for PHP 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7,3, 7.4 are made on each commit.
- Daily automated brief generated for previous day (if any posts was published that day).
- Automatic integration with your Exxp installation.
We plan to use GlotPress on WordPress.org, so if you want to translate DailyBrief to your language please follow this guidelines.

Can daily briefs be generated via WP CLI?
Yes, check WP-CLI-README to learn how.
Can I temporarily disable generation of daily briefs?
Yes, go to settings and set pause to Yes.
Can I generate daily briefs as drafts?
Yes, go to settings and set publish to No.
If I haven’t written any posts will Daily Brief publish empty briefs?
No, if it detects that there is nothing to summarize it will skip post creation.
Can I create the Briefs manually and not rely on CRON jobs?
Yes, Set “CRON Pause” to on and use the preview windows “Generate Now” button to create the briefs.
Take a look at the URL Suffix ‘?campaign=xxxxx’ etc and prefix it i.e. ‘?utm_campaign=xxxxxx’ and see if it helps, there is a slew of reserved parameters that is a terrible idea to use; Reserved Terms, many plugins also take ownership of specific parameters, so a bit of trial and error might be required. Test links in your Preview.
