2. Add a new custom field named "Gowalla" 
3. Put a Spot ID in the Gowalla field (ie: XXXXX from Gowalla-URI:
4. Add `<?php if (function_exists('gowalla_spotter')) gowalla_spotter(); ?>` inside the loop in a/the page template where you want the list to be displayed
5. Activate the plugin
6. Thats it!

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= How do I uninstall the plugin? =

Inactivate the plugin and remove the php-line added in the template. If you want you can also remove the Custom Field. 

= How come the feed isnt showing? =

You might have forgotten to add the line of php `<?php if (function_exists('gowalla_spotter')) gowalla_spotter(); ?>` or there is an error in it. Also check that you have a working Spot ID from Gowalla.
