WP Google Latitude

This plugin is a really simple way to add the Google Latitude "Where Am I" badge code as part of your sidebars.

You will need to do the following to make this work

1) Download this plugin

2) Go to http://www.google.com/latitude/apps/badge

a) change your Google Latitude "Settings" to one of the two "enable" settings.

b) copy the number after "user=" in the displayed script WARNING Some users will be a negative number. If you leave out the "-" it will fail. *****

3) Upload this plugin to your WordPress installation.

4) Go to WP-Admin, Appearance, Widgets, and add the widget to your sidebar of choice.

a) Edit the widget settings to your tastes - ESPECIALLY the Google Latitude ID (unless you're stalking TheITJuggler :)

5) That's it on WordPress.

6) Go to the device that will be your "Latitude locater" device.

7) Change your privacy settings to be anything OTHER than "Hide Your Location".

8) That's it.
