=== Social Media Mashup ===
Contributors: bravenewmedia, aliso
Tags: social media, facebook, twitter, google+, google plus, youtube, flickr, stream
Requires at least: 3.0
Tested up to: 3.2.1
Stable tag: 1.1

Combine your Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Flickr, YouTube, and any RSS feeds into one stream.

== Description ==

Social Media Mashup provides a widget and template tag to display a combined social media & RSS stream. A simple options panel and minimal CSS make this plugin easy to install and visually compatible on any WordPress site.

See the [screenshots](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/social-media-mashup/screenshots/) for an example of the plugin in action.

**Note:** Twitter stopped directly supporting RSS feeds a short while ago, and as a result Twitter feeds are intermittently disappearing from the mashup. We are currently working on a solution to make the Twitter feeds more reliable. **In the meantime,** use the caching feature of this plugin to increase the reliability of your Twitter feed.

== Installation ==

1. Unzip the file and upload the `social-media-mashup` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
1. Make sure the `smm-cache` folder inside the plugin folder is writeable by the server (permissions set to 755, 775, or 777 depending on your web host)
1. Activate the plugin through the **Plugins** menu in WordPress
1. Go to **Settings > Social Media Mashup** to enter social media & feed information
1. See the instructions in the upper-right of the settings page for the shortcode & template tag

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= Is there a shortcode? =

There is now! To insert a mashup into any post or page, use this shortcode in the content area:

`[social-media-mashup count="5"]`

Change `count` to customize the number of items displayed.

= What's the template tag? =

Insert this code into your theme to display a mashup:

if (function_exists('social_media_mashup'))

Change `5` to customize the number of items displayed.
