Praized Tools

The Praized Tools plugin is primarily a companion tool for our [Praized Community](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/praized-community/) plugin. It

Using the Plugin

Once the plugin is installed, activated and the API credentials have been configured, you will now see an extra button in the WordPress post and page editor.

In visual mode (TinyMCE), the new button is a small praized icon.

In HTML mode, the new button is simply a new form button.

Clicking on the said button will launch the Praized Searchlet, a place/merchant research tool. Once you have located the merchant you are interested in embedding in your post/page, simply use the "Embed this place" functionality (or "Embed this query" for search results).

Once configured to your liking, the searchlet will generate a short code, usually known as bbcode, shortcode or markdown ([praized ...]) that will be translated to XHTML when your post or page is viewed by your readers. You can preview how the output will look like by using the WP post/page preview features.

You can also access the Praized Searchlet's functionality by assigning the Praized Widget in WP Admin -> Design -> Widgets. This will allow you to feature a specific place, or search result, in your WordPress sidebars.

If your WordPress install is already setup to use WP caching, you can turn on caching for our embedded badges and lists through the Praized Tools admin screen. This will speed up page rendering in high traffic site by inssuring that the plugin does not connect to our API at each pageload, but simply refreshes the data at your desired interval. Please note that when using advanced WP caching plugins such as WP-Super-Cache, the said plugin's caching configuration might take precedence over ours (TTL, static files, etc).

Developers can also find our generated phpdoc documentation output in /wp-content/plugins/praized-tools/phpdocs/.
