CongressLookup

Give your visitors the ability to lookup US Congress members for specific zip codes and addresses.

  1. Unzip CongressLookup.zip and Upload folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Or in your Plugin page "Add Plugin" search: enter "CongressLookup" then install and activate.
  4. To obtain a free Sunlight Labs API key for your site, create a free account and a key will be emailed to you. NOTE: Propublica.org has taken over this database and API. Currently no API key is needed but our plugin still expects one so type anything you want into the API Key field to make it work.
  5. Enter API key and configure in: WP Admin > Settings > CongressLookup
  6. Use the following shortcodes in a page or post:
    Search for Senators and Representatives: [CongressLookup]
    Search for Senators only: [CongressLookup show="senator"]
    Search for Representatives only: [CongressLookup show="representative"]
  7. You can use the following codes in your template, placed outside the loop:
    <?php echo do_shortcode("[CongressLookup]"); ?>
    <?php echo do_shortcode("[CongressLookup show="senator"]"); ?>
    <?php echo do_shortcode("[CongressLookup show="representative"]"); ?>
  8. If you have any problems, please see our Trouble Shooting Guide before putting in a support request.
