Meetup Widgets

Description

For use with a Meetup.com group.

This plugin creates two widgets: one a list of events from a meetup group (by ID or URL name, for multiple groups use IDs); the other shows details about single event (by ID) with a link to RSVP – using OAuth if keys are specified, otherwise just a link to the event on meetup.com. Does require at least an API key (which it asks for on the settings page).

Screenshots

  • Example of the single event detail widget, shows title, date, an excerpt of the description, number of currently-rsvp'd attendees, a link to RSVP (through OAuth if configured), and the location (linking to a google map).
  • Example of the upcoming event list widget. Lists a set number of events from the group you specify, title & date.

FAQ

How do I find my API key?

Log in to your Meetup.com account, then visit the Getting an API Key page.

How do I find my OAuth key & secret?

You’ll need to create an OAuth consumer for your website. Visit Your OAuth Consumers for more information & to get started.

How do I find my event ID?

It’s in the event page’s URL: http://www.meetup.com/[group ID]/events/[event ID]/

How do I find my group ID?

If your meetup group is set up at meetup.com/[group URL name], the part after meetup.com/ is one of your group identifiers (the URL name). The other possible identifier is your group’s ID number.

API key

Your site says the Meetup list of events can be added with either an API key or a URL. It seems this is not true. It cannot be added with a URL. In fact, there seems to be no field for entering a URL. If it's added in the space for the API, it only shows up in the widget as "add a valid API key." Additionally, which of multiple API keys to use is confusing for many people, and your explanation is so abstract as not to qualify as an explanation at all. I see that only one other person has asked for help with a problem with your plugin, and it was never resolved. I hope you do at least try to offer support. Anyway, if it really were possible to use a URL rather than an API, this problem were not be occurring.... which it is...

No useful info on installing, uninstalled - shocking- please improve

support documentation is non exisitant.. maybe for a fulltime Dev perhaps...
shocking.
its a bit like meetup RSVPs 75% no-shows, and a waste of organisers time and effort.

add full descriptions, frickin meetup (where i was directed for the API) was no better... no info at all what the "stuff" was I was to input was....

i can see why all meetup plugins fail in WP.
please improve n ill check back, and upgrade my rating.... really!!!! what were you thinking to put no decent info up?
