If you reference venues on foursquare you may want to include the Publisher "Save to foursquare" button inline within your WordPress posts.

This plugin is a simple shortcode that accepts two parameters:

  • uid = foursquare user ID (numeric) to appear as 'referred' by' on foursquare once saved to a user's list
  • vid = the venue's ID (hash at the end of a venue URL)

This was built for my own purposes but am happy to accept pull requests on GitHub for any improvements to make this more useful to the community:
