How can I integrate Steady into my website?

Last updated about 1 month ago

There are many possibilities to highlight Steady in your publication so your followers can support you:

  • Linking: you can link to your campaign website (e.g, through text, a self-created created graphic or with one of the graphic buttons provided by Steady.
  • Steady Button*: the Steady Button consists of a floating button on the lower edge of your website that displays an overlay when clicked. You can edit the overlay text to convince your followers to support you.
  • Steady Paywall*: the Steady Paywall interrupts content (mostly text) on your website and asks reader to either support you on Steady, or to login on Steady in case they are already paying subscribers. Only then will the rest of the website be shown. Read more about the Steady paywall.
  • Steady Adwall*: the Steady Adwall will be triggered if someone who visits your website uses an adblocker. An overlay will be inserted over your website and you can define its content.
  • Steady Switch*: With ┬áSteady Switch you can show specific contents to paying or non-paying users. This way you can hide advertising for paying subscribers.
  • WordPress-Plugin(*): There are two ways to integrate Steady into a WordPress blog. Both have their pros and cons. Compare them here and make your choice.
  • Steady Login Button*: With the Steady Login Button, your users log in quickly and easily on your website. It triggers the Steady Login process and brings users back to your site after login. Users who are not logged in see this button. After clicking, a login dialog opens which starts the login process. Users who are already logged in, do not see the button.
  • Steady Checkout*: With Steady Checkout, users pay directly on your website without being redirected to Steady. With one line of code you insert the Steady plans into your page. Your users choose a plan, register with Steady and pay without leaving your site. (Can not be used on the same page as a Steady Paywall, so make sure you integrate your Steady checkout on a dedicated page that does not use the Steady Paywall. If other pages on your website use the Steady Paywall, that is not a problem.)
  • API: you can use the Steady API to restrict reader access to authorised Steady user accounts on your project. Set up your OAuth 2.0 application and use the client credentials to authorize your queries. You can find detailed documentation in the API Reference for Developers.
* These options require the insertion of the Steady Code, which is generated for your publication.
