WP Quadratum

Display your last Foursquare checkin as a map widget in the sidebar or embedded in a post or page, fully authenticated via OAuth 2.0.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Activate the plugin. From the Dashboard, navigate to Plugins and click on the "Activate" link under the entry for WP Quadratum.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
    1. Register your WordPress site as a Foursquare application on the Foursquare App 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 Your app name field is a label you want to use to identify this connection to your Foursquare account. The Download / welcome page url is the URL of your WordPress site. The Redirect URI 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). Push API Notifications should be set to Disable pushes to this app. All other fields can be left at their default values. Once you have successfully registered your site, you'll be provided with two keys, the Client ID and the Client Secret.
    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.
    3. You should now be authorised and ready to go; click on the Connect to Foursquare button.
  6. Choose your mapping provider. From the Maps tab, select the map provider from the Maps Provider drop down.
  7. 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. Click on the Save Changes button to save your credentials.
  8. 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.
  9. You can configure the widget's title, with widget's width and map height in px or as a percentage and the map zoom level. Click on the Save button to preserve your changes.
