The installation of Dingshow is as simple as slicing bread:

  1. Upload the folder ‘dingshow’ into the plugin-folder of WordPress.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Configuration & Usage

There a two ways of integrating dingshow into your Blog:

1. the dingshow-widget

Using the widget is the most simple and elegant way of integrating your microbloggingentries into your blog. To do so, add the widget via ‘presentation->widgets’ to your sidebar, and configure it in the dingshow-menu, which is a submenu of WordPress’ ‘Options’-Page.

2. the dingshow-themetag
Alernatively you can use a theme-tag, whichs allows you to show the plugin not only in the sidebar, but anywhere on your blog. In order to use the theme-tag you need to edit your themefiles, and add the following code at the places you want dingshow to be seen:

<?php if (function_exists('dingshow_showdings')) {     dingshow_showdings(); } ?> 

To configure it, go to ‘Options->Dingshow’.
