Reddit Lurker


This plugin gives you a WordPress interface to Reddit’s API. By simply putting in a shortcode on a page in WP, that page gives you access to links, votes, usernames, and comments from a selected subreddit. The access is read-only with no posting of comments or voting, which is where the name of the plugin comes from.


  1. Upload the plugin to wp-content/plugins
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu
  3. (Optional) Change settings for overview and comment limits (maximal amount of entries to fetch, or 0 for the default value)
  4. Add the shortcode [reddit-lurker subreddit="name"] to a page
