defining custom field to add to plugin call (3 posts)

    Hi guys,

    Wow. It's been like 2 years or something since I posted last. I wonder if the same people still lurk here?

    I'm creating a website with a directory of contacts, and I thought it would be cool to add QR codes to each of these contacts so visitors could quickly add the details they want to their phones.

    I'm using a plugin called "QR Code Tag" which lets you do a php call within your template and define what content you want to convert to the QR code. I want to define it on the fly with custom fields. I can't figure out how to do this.

    I know my code is really wrong, but maybe you'll get where I'm going by having a look at it.

    <?php $venue = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'Address', true);
      global $qrcodetag;
      echo $qrcodetag->getQrCodeUrl('$venue;',80,'UTF-8','L',0,0);
    ?>

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure the answer is pretty simple but I'm not very good with getting php right. Thanks in advance.

    I've already added qr codes to my websites.
    I’m using a plugin called text-replace, with two replace-codes I created: [qr], and [/qr].

    So, something like [qr]Random Message[/qr] results in a qrcode appearing on-screen..

    [qr] sets up the google chart url, and includes the text as the last parameter, [/qr] simply closes off the statement.

    And that’s it.
    (I have also created a bbcode version of this for use on bulletin boards..)

    Here are the "replace codes" for use with "text replace":
    [qr] => <img src="http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=qr&choe=UTF-8&chs=150&chl=
    [/qr] => " />

    Hope this helps...

    P.S. I use the excellent "upcodes" on my smartphone to read qrcodes..
