WPMB

A plugin to show your most recent MotionBased activities in the side bar.

I don't see any activities on my site after activating the plugin

It's not enough to just activate the plugin. You need to drag the plugin widget from the 'Available Widgets' area of the 'Widgets' page in the 'Presentation' area of WordPress to the desired position in the Sidebar area.

I don't see any activities on my site after dragging the widget over

Did you configure the Widget with your MotionBased.com account name? You need to click on the little icon that is in the right hand area of the widget once you've dragged it to the sidebar. This pops up a window for you to configure the plugin's properties. Once you're done click on the 'X' in the top-right of the pop-up then click the 'Save Changes>>' button.

I've dragged the widget and configured it. There was nowhere to put my password!

The WPMB plugin does not require your MotionBased.com password - it derives all of its information from your publicly available MotionBased activity RSS feed.

I've dragged the widget and configured it. I still don't see anything

Have you got the right account name? For example, my MotionBased.com account is 'bargolf', note not bargolf.motionbased.com. You can check you've got the right account name by typing http://.motionbased.com into your web-browser address area. This should show you your MotionBased activity digest.

I've got the right account name, but I _still_ don't see anything

The WPMB plugin can only access your public MotionBased activities that are currently published through you're MotionBased activity digest. Try entering http://.motionbased.com/rss into your browser and see if it shows you anything. If it doesn't this may be because you haven't uploaded any MotionBased.com activities yet - or you have but you haven't made them public.

How do I make an activity public in MotionBased so that WPMB can see it

Visit MotionBased.com and login using your account details. Go to your 'Digest' page and click on the activity you wish to publish. Then click on the 'Activity Options' link toward the top-right of the activity details page. Make sure the 'Private: Hide from TrailNetwork' tick box is unticked then click 'Submit'.

Why does WPMB only show 5 activities - I have many more than this

FIXED - This limitation is no longer present. You can now configure the number of activities to show.

This is cool - I wish I could have this on my FaceBook profile page

You can! This plugin is derived from code I originally wrote for my FaceBook application 'MyMotionBased'. Just visit http://apps.facebook.com/mymotionbased/ to see what that application can do.
