Steam Library GT

Description

Display your Steam game library and grab related game information from the thegamesdb.net.

Simply add the shortcode [steam_library_gt] to a page or post, to embed the library.

API Usage

This plugin uses 2 separate remote API’s:

  1. Steam – http://api.steampowered.com
  2. thegamesDB – http://thegamesdb.net/api

The Steam API is used to retrieve your game library data (using the GetOwnedGames method). To successfully interact with this service, we use the Steam Profile ID and Steam Web API Key you provide in the plugin configuration admin page.

ThegamesDB.net API is used to retrieve per game information (using the GetGame method). No credentials are required to interact with this service.

Further information on both API service methods can be found here -> https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Steam_Web_API#GetOwnedGames and here -> http://wiki.thegamesdb.net/index.php?title=GetGame

FAQ

The plugin doesn’t seem to work

Check your file/folder permissions. Make sure the cache folder is writable by the server.

The plugin takes a long time to load, the first time I use it

The first time you access the plugin it will cache every image from your library. If your library is large, this could take several minutes… Please, be patient!
