    Using WordPress 3.0.3. My website URL for referece: http://www.harlemproperties.com

    Ok, hi, thanks for reading!

    I've installed SRE, and am looking forward to using the short-coded widgets throughout the site. I got the schools to work with the zip code information. That one was easy. Now I've turned to using the Yelp shortcode and the Neighborhood Profile shortcode.

    I have not been able to get any output just yet on either yelp or neighborhood. After a week or two of googling and cruising the support forms, I don't think this very basic question has been explicitly written about yet! Any help you can provide would be appreciated (I have an inkling that maybe this has something to do with a wp_footer or something? I'm not sure what that is--but it's the closest thing I've seen to coming as a solution in one of the discussion forms but I wasn't sure what to do!)

    Here's my yelp short code that is not having any output:

    [yelp lat="40.798953" lng="-73.943155"]

    And here is my neighborhood info shortcode below that is not having any output (below). I see that I might be required to have lat, lng, address, city, state, AND zip_code all defined to get the neighborhood widget working--but can I get by with just the zipcode? If not, how do I define address, city, and state? Are there certain rules I need to follow on the definitions?

    [srp_profile zip_code="10035"]

    Your theme has to have wp_footer() function since some of the JavaScripts are loading within the footer.

    As for the shortcodes - there are icons in the page editor in the WYSIWYG panel - try using them to embed Yelp and Neighborhood Profiles, since they automatically generate correct shortcodes with the required parameters.

    P.S. I just visited your site and see that you managed to output Yelp data.

    It's funny--I saw that Yelp was working after I read your post 2 days ago. And this morning, too, it was working! But now...it isn't. Any reason why it would be cutting in and out like that?

    This (http://www.harlemproperties.com/3-harlem-information/neighborhoods/east-harlem/east-harlem-restaurants) was working this morning, showing restaurants in East Harlem NY. The short code of the page is exactly:

    [yelp lat="40.798471" lng="-73.93498" radius="1.1" term="restaurants" sortby="distance" num_biz_requested="999"]

    And even after I increase the radius to, say, 10 miles, I still get no results...strange, right?

    Yelp is limiting their API to 100 calls a day - according to their TOS you have to email them directly with request to increase your calls limit. They want to see who (and how) uses their API. Here, read second paragraph http://www.yelp.com/developers/getting_started

    Ok, cool.
    And regarding the neighborhood output from the first post in this thread,

    And here is my neighborhood info shortcode below that is not having any output (below). I see that I might be required to have lat, lng, address, city, state, AND zip_code all defined to get the neighborhood widget working--but can I get by with just the zipcode? If not, how do I define address, city, and state? Are there certain rules I need to follow on the definitions?

    [srp_profile zip_code="10035"]

    See webpage at: http://www.harlemproperties.com/east-harlem-market-statistics

    AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!! MAY WE HAVE A VERY SUCCESSFUL YEAR!

    Happy New Year!

    Neighborhood Profiles require coordinates - the latitude and the longitude of the location. You should have a "map" icon in your WYSIWYG editor - if you click on it, a dialog pops up where you can enter address and automatically generated coordinates based on that address. The dialog automatically creates the correct shortcode and inserts it into you post or page.

    I am now having issues with the Yelp content being intermittent. I go to the site some times and it works...other times it doesn't. I've not reached the limits as I just installed it and I'm the only one accessing the site. winchendonhomefinder.com is the site. Ideas?

    @bfossjr - Contact yelp to increase your API call quota, otherwise they default to 100 calls per day. See more info here http://www.yelp.com/developers/getting_started
