Support » Plugin: Widget for Yelp Reviews » Requires Yelp API access

  • Requires Yelp API access, not just typing in the business name as the installation states. Fine for business owners, but adds a large hurdle for developers

    Hey Eddyrie,

    This restriction comes from the service itself, from Yelp, not from our plugin. Yelp requires an API key for getting reviews, without this key, you can not officially get reviews.

    I do not think that your 2 stars review is justified. Why, because of the limitation of the Yelp itself, do you negatively evaluate our plugin, is this honest? Please think about it.

    @richplugins – The solution here would be to document in your readme “Requires the YELP API to work.” with a link to where they can sign up 🙂

    And really, any time your plugin uses a third-party-service, it’s in your best interests to link up to that service AND the terms of use. It’s a good way to protect yourself.

    Hey Mika,

    Thank you for clarification. I added it to the readme. But how about this review, is it possible to delete?
