Foursquare Map

Adds a map of your last Foursquare check-in location to a widget area, and makes it easy to share with your readers without giving away too much info.

Where do I put the widget?

You can place the widget wherever you like as long as it is within a pre-defined widget area. I haven't worked out how to let people place the widget wherever they like. Let me know if you can help on my contact page though.

Can I style the widget in my own way?

Kind of. You can change the parts that are created by WordPress by using your stylesheet.css to override your theme's default widget settings. I've added the below style classes for you to do so:

  • .four2map - the widget class
  • .widgettitle - the widget's title (same as all widgets)
  • .venue - the div above the map containing the venue name
  • .label - the text within the .venue div
  • .map - the map itself
  • .comment - the text below the map

To make changes to what you see within the map, you might need to play around with the Google API code in bundled with the widget. I'm sure code snippets will start to appear in the comments right here to help you along.

Where can I find more help and support?

Just leave a comment right here or email me from the contact page on my blog. I'll be happy to help where possible.
