This plugin is a sidebar widget which draws data from the joind.in website, or any other site exposing the same API. Joind.in is an open source event management/feedback site written in PHP – see http://joind.in.
Features: * sidebar widget * shows hot events or talks at a given event * customisable title * database caching – avoid repeated and slow API calls to joind.in
Can the plugin integrate with other sites?
Currently the plugin only works against the joind.in API. This is an open source project so you can run another copy of the code and point your plugin to that if you like, but no other APIs are supported.
How can I get other information from joind.in to display?
Comment on the plugin page what you want to do and why – someone may help!
Correcting a PHP short tag – thanks to @phpcodemonkey for the bug report
Fixing a major bug in this plugin, which registered the cron events repeatedly. If you are upgrading please deactivate and reactivate your plugin after you upgrade! Switching over to using the wordpress http handling rather than requiring curl (thanks to James Collins who commented on my blog suggesting this)
