Gowalla Spotter


The plugin displays activity in a Gowalla Spot in a WordPress Post or Page. It uses the Gowalla API and requires the unique Spot ID saved in a custom field in WordPress.


The last five activities are displayed (API limit).


  • This is Gowalla Spotter displayed below a post above the comments.


  1. Upload the folder gowalla-spotter to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Add a new custom field named “Gowalla”
  3. Put a Spot ID in the Gowalla field (ie: XXXXX from Gowalla-URI:
  4. Add <?php if (function_exists('gowalla_spotter')) gowalla_spotter(); ?> inside the loop in a/the page template where you want the list to be displayed
  5. Activate the plugin
  6. Thats it!


How do I uninstall the plugin?

Inactivate the plugin and remove the php-line added in the template. If you want you can also remove the Custom Field.

How come the feed isnt showing?

You might have forgotten to add the line of php <?php if (function_exists('gowalla_spotter')) gowalla_spotter(); ?> or there is an error in it. Also check that you have a working Spot ID from Gowalla.
