MoviesForMyBlog

Displays the most recent instant play movies and/or DVD's and Blu-Ray's shipped out on the netflix account.

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload moviesformyblog folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Add the plugin to the sidebar under the widget options through the Appearance menu and drag it to the location of your choice.
  4. Set the title of the Plugin to what you would like to call it. Preferably MoviesForMyBlog.
  5. Go to the MFMB Settings page under the Settings menu.
  6. Click the Get Login Tokens link to get your initial Login Tokens.
  7. Click the Authorize Tokens link to take you to a netflix authorization page to allow this plugin to authorize the OAuth tokens to request an ID to communicate with your Netflix account. After logging into netflix it will redirect you to the homepage of your WordPress Blog.
  8. Go back to the site admin section and navigate to the MFMB Settings page under the Settings menu.
  9. Click the Get Access Tokens link to get your final authorization tokens for secure authentication to netflix without your username and password.
  10. Select the options to display and type a quantity to retrieve. I recommend not going over 50 for each option selected because it doesn't support more than that for this implementation.
  11. Select in whole numbers how often you want the data to be refreshed. I recommend every 1 to 2 hours. Netflix does limit the amount of requests your account can make on a daily basis. This also helps lower the load on my servers to request data to frequently.
  12. Last click the Save Changes button to make your first secure authenticated request.
  13. The CSS of your theme out of the box might make the widget look different. You might have to make a few css changes to the plugin in regards to the width and height of the sidebar you added it to. I have put those settings at the top of the css file. Feel free to customize as needed.
  14. You should now have the plugin initialized on your WordPress Blog.
