Oh Hey World

Oh Hey World is the easiest way to share your safe arrival in a new city with those who care. This plugin compliments your Oh Hey World profile.

This plugin allows WordPress to embed your current geographic location directly into a blog. You MUST have a Oh Hey World account to use this plugin.

With the Oh Hey World plugin, travel bloggers can quickly and easily keep their current location up to date using what WordPress calls "shortcodes" and into their sidebars using the included widget. Rather than manually changing text within the theme to update your location, you can check-in when you arrive at a new location with one click and that will automatically update the location listed on your travel blog, share your location on Twitter and Facebook, and email or text your parents, significant other, and/or close friends.

In addition to the sidebar widget, there are two shortcodes:

  • [currentlocation user_slug="username"] - Pulls in the pure text of your latest check-in on Oh Hey World. For example, if you are checked-in to New York, the text returned will be "New York, New York, United States".
  • [currentbadge user_slug="username"] - Pulls in the widebar widet and embeds it inside of a page or post.

Important Notes

  • Your user name can be found in the URL structure of your profile. For the profile http://www.ohheyworld.com/drewmeyers/profile, the user name is "drewmeyers"
  • Your web host must be running at least PHP 5.2. PHP 5.2 has been out for more than 3 years at this point, so if they aren’t using PHP 5.2, they’re quite a ways behind the times. This is almost never an issue nowadays.
  • You must be using at least WordPress 3.4.
