This plugin allows you to display your last Swarm checkin as a map widget on the sidebar or embedded via a shortcode in a post or page of your WordPress powered site.

Setting and options include:

  1. Associate your WordPress powered site with your Foursquare account using OAuth 2.0, which keeps your personal information safe and secure.
  2. Choose which map provider you want your checkin shown on; you can choose from:
    1. HERE Maps
    2. Google Maps v3
    3. Bing Maps v7
    4. OpenStreetMap from Leaflet
    5. OpenStreetMap from OpenLayers
    6. OpenStreetMap from MapQuest
  3. Add your maps API key(s) for your chosen map provider; HERE, Google, Bing and MapQuest maps all require API keys.
  4. Choose the width and height of the widget and map on the sidebar. The width and height can be specified either as pixels (px) or as a percentage.
  5. Choose the zoom level of the map display.

The strapline text containing the venue name, venue URL and timestamp of your last Swarm checkin can be customised via the plugin's filters. See the Filter Support And Usage section for more information.

The current version of this plugin allows you to associate a single Foursquare account with your WordPress site; associating multiple Foursquare accounts, one per user account is not currently supported.
