There are many Lifestreaming sites that offer widgets & badges to place on your website but often they are limiting. So often many folks will choose a Lifestreaming service to use but opt for their own plugin or script to host a Lifestream on their own site. Still this method can be a bit painful as most plugins require a bit more work to get setup and often don’t offer support for the variety of sites that you may want to use.
For those of you in this quandry the proverbial killing two birds with one stone has been delivered with the new WP-Profilactic WordPress plugin written by Anish H. Patel. It makes it very easy to host your own rich Lifestream on your own site. All you have to do is create an account and build your Lifestream on Profilactic where you can add from their unmatched support for up to 175 sites to your Lifestream.
After you’re done with the account creation you just download & install the plugin, provide your Profilactic account credentials, and then add a small snippet of code to a new template file or use the one provided. Yes, it’s that easy, no muss, no fuss. You also have the option of customizing the plugin with some options regardin number of posts to display, colors, etc.
