Over the weekend I released Meetup Widgets 2.0. There are very few visible changes – the only thing a casual user would probably notice is a warning if the plugin can’t detect OAuth. [OAuth is only used if you’ve entered your key + secret. If you have, users can RSVP for events through your site. If you haven’t entered this info, users are redirected to meetup.com. So OAuth is not required for this plugin to function]
* Change to using admin-ajax to process OAuth requests, rather than custom file. * Change basic code structure to work with other (in-development) meetup plugins. * Add warning message if the server does not have OAuth. * use `wp_trim_words` rather than writing something custom * pull apart a translated string somewhat
The really big changes are barely noticeable in this plugin. So why do it? I’ve developed another Meetup plugin that allows users to register & log in to your WordPress (or BuddyPress) site using their meetup.com login. I’m in the process of writing a separate post about it, & will update this one with a link.
