== Description ==

Lifestream displays your social feeds and photos much like you would see it on many of the social networking sites. This version is taken from the Github Source after changes have been made




Follow us on Twitter:


  • PHP 5.x
  • WordPress 2.8+
  • MySQL 5.x

== Installation ==

Upload the plugin (unzipped) into

. You should end up with

Activate the plugin under the "Plugins" menu.

Visit "Lifestream" -> "Settings" to configure the basic options, and add feeds.

There are severals methods in which you can use Lifestream in a WordPress page.

The easiest way is to use the normal context handler (works in pages and posts):


Another method requires a custom WordPress page, or the use of a template, and is a simple function call:

You may also specify several parameters in the

method (useful for sidebar display). These should be in the standard key=>value format for PHP calls.
  • (int) offset
    : defaults to 0
  • (int) limit
    : defaults to '50'
  • (string) date_interval
    : defaults to '1 month'
  • (boolean) break_events
    : defaults to false - forces grouped events to be single
  • (array) user_ids
    : defaults to all users -- specify the ids of users to show
  • (array) feed_types
    : defaults to all feeds -- specify the feed keys (e.g. twitter) to show
  • (array) feed_ids
    : defaults to all feeds -- specify the ids of feeds to show, also overrides

For example:

[lifestream limit="10"]

For more advanced uses, you may directly use

which will return an array of
instances. This is the same syntax as the



    <?php $options = array('limit' => 50); $events = $lifestream->get_events($options);

    foreach ($events as $event) { echo '

  • '.$event->render($options).'
  • '; } ?>

Another popular example, would to be show your current Twitter, or Facebook status somewhere in your templates:

`$events = $lifestream->getevents(array('feedtypes'=>array('twitter'), 'numberofresults'=>1, 'break_groups'=>true); $event = $events[0];

// to render it with links echo $event->feed->render_item($event, $event->data);

// or render just the text echo $event->data['title'];`

Or, use our handy shortcuts:
