Once you completed the registration form, you will have to wait before admins activate your account. You will receive an email notification when your account will be activated.

Otherwise, you may create an account on TriPress by using Discord, Twitter or VKontakte. In this case, you will skip the step of validation of registration by ourselves, but you will have to comply with the Terms of Service of these services.

You will also have to create an account on WordPress.com and integrate your TriPress account with your WordPress.com account if you want to automatically share your posts on your favorite social networks. You may also ask us personally to integrate your TriPress account with your Steemit account if you want to automatically publish your TriPress posts on Steemit (in this case, we will need your Steemit username and your private posting key).

Using TriPress also requires some knowledge in the English language since some sections of our social media may not be translated.
