You can install WP Quadratum automatically from the WordPress admin panel. From the Dashboard, navigate to the Plugins / Add New page and search for "WP Quadratum" and click on the "Install Now" link.
Or you can install WP Quadratum manually. Download the plugin Zip archive and uncompress it. Copy or upload the wp-quadratum folder to the wp-content/plugins folder on your web server.

Configure your Foursquare credentials; from the Dashboard, navigate to the Settings / WP Quadratum page or click on the "Settings" link from the Plugins page on the Dashboard.
To display your Foursquare checkins, WP Quadratum needs to be authorised to access your Foursquare account information; this is a simple, safe and secure 3 step process. WP Quadratum never sees your account login information and cannot store any personally identifiable information.
Step 1. Register this WordPress site as a Foursquare application on the Foursquare OAuth Consumer Registration page. If you're not currently logged into your Foursquare account, you'll need to login with the Foursquare account whose checkins you want WP Quadratum to display. The Application Name is a label you want to use to identify this connection to your Foursquare account. The Application Web Site is the URL of your WordPress site. The Callback URL will be provided for you and will be along the lines of http://www.yoursite.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-quadratum/includes/wp-quadratum-callback.php (this is just an example, don't use this URL). Once you have successfully registered your site, you'll be provided with two keys, the Client ID and the Client Secret.
Step 2. Copy and paste the supplied Client ID and Client Secret into the respective WP Quadratum setting fields. Click on the "Save Changes" button to preserve them.
Step 3. You should now be authorised and ready to go; click on the Connect to Foursquare button.
Choose your mapping provider. From the Maps tab, select the map provider from the Maps Provider drop down.
If your chosen mapping provider requires an API key or keys, enter them as requested. If you don't have an API key, each maps provider tab has a link to the provider's site where you can sign up and obtain your API key.
If you have selected Nokia Maps as your map provider:
If you have the WP Nokia Auth plugin installed and configured, your Nokia Maps API keys will be shown in read-only form
If you don't have the WP Nokia Auth plugin installed and configured, you can enter your Nokia Maps API keys to give you, amongst other benefits, an increased per month transaction limit. Click on the Save Changes button to save your credentials.
Add and configure a WP Quadratum Widget. From the Dashboard, navigate to Appearance / Widgets and drag the WP Quadratum Widget to your desired widget area.
You can configure the widget's title, with widget's width and map height in px, the map zoom level and whether to show private checkins or not. Click on the Save button to preserve your changes.
