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).

In general, you should not need the plugin: you can save a limited amount of data, posts, and a number of audio notes on psygraph.com. However, if you wish to preserve your data indefinitiely or upload large datasets, we ask that you install the plugin on your own site, or use the app to email the data to yourself.

Web Client

The plugin also installs a web client, which 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, available from the Member menu item “My Posts” (or at http://psygraph.com/pguser/USERNAME). On that page will are the admin settings, which contain a checkbox to make your data public.

Creating Posts and Podcasts

Posts can be created out of notes in the Psygraph application by selecting the corresponding setting in the Psygraph plugin administrator settings. Posts are automatically created with titles, text, and audio tracks at the time that the notes are uploaded. Podcasts (or RSS 2.0 feeds) can then be made available using a tool such as Blubrry’s PowerPress.

Using WordPress shortcodes

The data that is stored on the WordPress server can be accessed on your blog pages by using WordPress shortcodes.  For more information about the shortcodes, please consult the plugin documentation on GitHub: Psygraph WordPress plugin.
