The Psygraph WordPress Plugin

The Psygraph plugin for WordPress does several things:

  1. It offers a web interface to some of the features of the Psygraph application.
  2. It displays Psygraph data on your blog by using various shortcodes.
  3. It automatically creates posts with audio attachments for an RSS feed (Podcast). [Note: This feature is not enabled on the Psygraph.com site due to bandwidth issues]

The Psygraph WordPress plugin integrates with the Psygraph app to display your data, and is only necessary if you wish to use your data outside of the Psygraph app. You can use any WordPress installation that has the Psygraph plugin installed, such as psygraph.com.  If you use your own WordPress installation, you will be able to create new posts and automatically upload audio notes.

Web Client

The web client offers a limited interface to some of the features of Psygraph. Some options that depend on your device, such as those dependent on the accelerometer, are disabled. The web client for Psygraph.com can be accessed as: http://psygraph.com/webclient).

Displaying Data

Psygraph creates a virtual page for each user with recent events, audio notes, and other data. That data can be visualized on a graph, or downloaded in a number of different file formats.

By default, Psygraph data is only available to you when you are logged into WordPress. You might wish to allow your data to be publicly readable, however, so that you can share your progress with other people. In order to share your data, log into the wordpress site and visit your user page, http://psygraph.com/pguser/USERNAME (replace USERNAME with your actual WordPress username). At the top of that page will be the admin settings, which contain a checkbox to make your data public.

For more information about the shortcodes that are used, see the page discussing shortcodes. For an example of the way shortcodes render the data from your mobile phone, see the example page for the user beta at: http://psygraph.com/pguser/beta.

Creating Posts and Podcasts

Posts can be created out of notes in Psygraph application by selecting the corresponding setting in the Psygraph plugin administrator settings [please note that this feature is not selected at Psygraph.com, since we do not have the bandwidth to host everyone’s audio content]. To do that, you must be logged in as an administrator of the WordPress site. If that option is selected, content will be automatically uploaded when it is created. Podcasts (or RSS 2.0 feeds) can then be made available using a tool such as Blubrry’s PowerPress. For example, see: https://psygraph.com/category/podcast/feed/
