This plugin adds a widget that displays random items from your CafePress.com store. Requires cURL and a CafePress API Key.
== Description ==
This plugin adds a widget that displays random items from your CafePress.com store. The display uses the 150px X 150px thumbnail provided by CafePress, description, price and ‘Buy Now’ link. See it in action at OnScreenCars.com It can also cache a copy of your items to avoid hitting API limits and performance issues. Your webserver will need to have the cURL extension for PHP in order for this plugin to work. You will also need to obtain a CafePress API Key. API Keys can be obtained from this link: http://developer.cafepress.com/apps/register.
== Installation ==
1. Upload zip file contents to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
3. Add/Configure Your CafePress Ad Rotator Widget
After you install the plugin go to Widgets, add and configure the CafePress Ad Rotator widget. You’ll
need your CafePress store id (ex. http://www.cafepress.com/mystoreid, last part of the url),
API Key and a label name for your widget. You can obtain API Keys from http://developer.cafepress.com/apps/register Once you have your widget up and running it’s best to cache a copy of your CafePress items. From the widget control panel check “Update Cache” and click Save. You can clear or update the cache at anytime. It marks the last time you updated your item cache. Whenever changes are made to your store, you need to update your cache.
