This is a quick post to introduce you to a little plugin I wrote for wordpress, wordpress-idno-feedwidget.

The plugin creates a wordpress widget that lets you display the latest content from your Idno site in your blog sidebar. It’ll render the first 50 characters of a status update, and the titles of blog posts, with an author picture and a link to both the author profile and original posting. Image posts are also rendered, with a thumbnail view (although this could be made more efficient).

There is plenty of room for improvement; I’d like to render different types better, videos and events with an appropriate player for example, but it’s a start! The widget makes use of the JSONP endpoint, so make sure you’re using the latest codebase.
