Homepage and Support: http://www.enthropia.com/labs/wp-lifestream/
Follow us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/wplifestream

Requirements:

* PHP 5.x
* WordPress 2.5+
* MySQL 5.x


== Installation ==

Upload the plugin (unzipped) into `/wp-content/plugins/`. You should end up with `/wp-content/plugins/lifestream/lifestream.php`.

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):

`[lifestream]`

Another method requires a [custom WordPress page](http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Page_Templates), or the use of a template, and is a simple function call:

`<?php lifestream(); ?>`

You may also specify several parameters in the `lifestream` 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 `feed_types` setting

For example:

`[lifestream limit="10"]`

For more advanced uses, you may directly use `get_events()` which will return an array of `Event` instances. This is the same syntax as the `lifestream()` method.

Example:

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

foreach ($events as $event)
{
	echo '<li>'.$event->render($options).'</li>';
}
?>
</ul>`

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

`$events = $lifestream->get_events(array('feed_types'=>array('twitter'), 'number_of_results'=>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:

`<?php lifestream_twitter_status(); ?>`

And

`<?php lifestream_facebook_status(); ?>`
