Real-time updates

Give your readers real time updates for the event or news you’re covering with your live blog. Post new updates and have them appear in the live blog on the front end without the readers having to refresh their page. Everyone will be on the same page.

Customize the live blog section

Select between a light or dark background to match your theme. Also you can select the color for the “New updates” banner. And you can place the live blog as a shortcode, block or even widget. Do whatever you want to it!
