    Looks like the plugin gives an error after 4SQ passed to HTTPS.

    It gives Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/mguven/public_html/gebinet/ on line 49


    Any update ahead?

    The Plugin is still working fine here and there shouldn’t be any HTTPS related issues, because it uses the Foursquare API, which used HTTPS anyway (at least for non authenticated requests, but that would go too far into oAuth 2 mechanics).
    The error message means the plugin didn’t get any viable data from Foursquare, so better re-check your username and password in the settings.
    Could you maybe point me to the URL where you installed the plugin, so I can take a look at it?

    I just installed the plugin but it doesn’t work. The following message appears :

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/ramenian/ on line 56

    Could you help me to fix it ?

    Hello Luc,
    thanks for using my plugin!

    Are you sure you’ve got the latest version?
    The error means there was no data returned by Foursquare, please re-check your Foursquare login credentials (Email & Password) in the Widget settings.

    awesome plugin, but it looks like Foursquare has disabled the API you are using. Any plans for an upgrade?

    Unfortunately I don’t have the time to redo the plugin at this point.
    I’m very sorry, but as of now I can’t tell you when it’s gonna be available again.
