FourSquareAPI Plugin for WordPress

This plugin uses the foursquare® API to retrieve various information and display it in a widget or directly in posts and pages via a shortcode. Information currently available includes …

  • your recent checkins
  • your mayorships
  • your badges
  • your checkin history

To display your selected data in a widget, simply drag the widget to your sidebar and select the options you want to display. Similarly, you can add the widget styled data to a page or post by using the shortcode features (see shortcode pages)

Your foursquare data may be displayed with options to include a map showing the location(s), address details, and statistics relating to the venue. Some data also allows you display a timestamp relating to when the event occurred (such as when you checked in or when you received a badge)

I wanted to show my foursquare® check-ins here on the blog but wasn’t 100% with the few plugins that currently exist … so I wrote my own :)

The map is my favorite feature. Venue icons or badges will be placed on the map and, if selected, on your list of checked in venues or achieved badges. Clicking an icon from the list will move the map to that venue.

If you are currently using this plugin, please let me know your website as I am planning on providing a ‘users wall’ section here.

    Hi there. Thanks for the nice plugin. However, you surely received the information by Foursquare about the changes on the API? They say “API requests made without a version parameter will stop being supported this month.”
    So my question is: Will you provide an update taking care of this? (Please!)
    Or will we have to remove the plugin from our sites? (I hope not.)
    Thanks in advance!
