Lanyrd Splat Widget


A very simple widget showing configurable information from Lanyrd about your activities. Uses the official Badge technique


  • Setting up the Lanyrd widget.

  • The Lanyrd Widget in action.


  1. Install the plugin from within the Dashboard or upload the directory lanyrd-splat-widget and all its contents to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add the Lanyrd Splat Widget to one (or more) of your sidebar areas
  4. Set your Lanyrd username and other optional settings


When I make changes on Lanyrd they don’t show

Lanyrd have a 10 minute cache for this info (at the time of writing)… please be patient

Why does the widget call Lanyrd everytime?

Yes, we know this isn’t the best but I think their API is still under development. Once this is available (or I’ve done more research) I’ll use it and cache the results on the WordPress install.
