TirpAdvisor Plugin For WordPress

I have received a lot of requests to make a TripAdvisor Plugin based off of an article that I wrote about how to integrate reviews from TripAdvisor into a WordPress site. So here it is:

[su_highlight background=”#ff9999″]TripAdvisor recently changed their terms of service along with that they blocked all access to your TripAdvisor RSS feed. I am working on a update that I hope to have ready shortly, you can sign up to receive an email when it is ready, sign up here. The fix is here! You can learn how to add TripAdvisor reviews to your site here.[/su_highlight]

You will need your TripAdvisor id number, which you can get from your TripAdvisor URL:

The plugin will create a widget which has three fields Title, TripAdvisor ID, and Number of Reviews to display.

The plugin also uses a short code to display the reviews on any page or post:

This plugin has worked on every theme that I have tested, if you use it and notice any bugs please leave a comment here so that I can look into it.

  1. The widget and shortcode seem to work as advertised.

    An isue that I would like to work around concerns the shortcode. When I use it on a page or post I would like to add some content to the page before the reviews appear. In my theme (Genesis Based), the reviews appear first and the then my introductory content appears at the foot of the page.

    Any way I can add an image and some words before the reviews are served?

    1. Hi Mehmet, can you provide me a link to your TripAdvisor page?

  2. Can’t tell you how excited I am to find your plugin-in! Thanks for making it available.

    Unfortunately I was getting the “Feed unavailable” message too. Here’s the Tripadvisor page. Any suggestions on what I can do?

    I used the widget and also tried using the shortcode on a page but with the same result.

    Thanks!

  3. Greg your plugin is a great idea yet the feeds still don’t work, i will apply for the notification mail when you solve the problem, but is there any indication as to when it might be fixed?
    Thank you again for making it

    1. I’m going to spend some time working on it this weekend. If there’s an easy work around it’ll get fixed then. If there isn’t a quick fix then I’ll have to apply for a TripAdvisor API, which will take longer.

    1. Hi Andy,

      To be honest I’m not sure. I’ve got a lot of client work that I do during the week, so it may take me a week or two to respond to any emails/comments, but I do try to respond to every message that I receive.
