Ping.fm Custom URL

Receives blogs, micro-blogs, and status updates from Ping.fm and posts them to your blog in the best way possible.

Template Tag Usage

void wp_pingfm_status ( [ int $limit [, string $prefix [, bool $permalink ]]] )

Displays status updates in an unordered list (<ul>). All parameters are optional.

Parameters

limit

The number of status updates to show. Default value is 10. Depending on your needs and the location on the page, a value between 5 and 15 is usually pretty reasonable.

prefix

Some text to display before every status update. Default value is nothing. This can be useful if all of your status updates begin with a verb. For example, you might post "going to the store" from Ping.fm. If your prefix is "Matt is", the final output will be "Matt is going to the store". Neat, huh?

permalink

Whether to show timestamps as permalinks, a la Twitter. The archive page is editable via the tmpl-single.php template file.

Example

If you're using the Twenty Ten theme that ships with WordPress 3.0, you might put the following into your sidebar.php file:

<li id="pingfm" class="widget-container">
    <h3 class="widget-title">Status Updates</h3>
    <?php wp_pingfm_status(); ?>
</li>

mixed wp_pingfm_latest ( void )

Retrieves the single most recent ping (status update) from the database.

Return Values

A stdClass object representing the latest ping, if it exists. Otherwise, false. The object will contain the properties listed below. For more information, dig through the source of the WordPress get_posts() function.
