Adds shortcodes to show YouTube channel’s subscribers and video views count. For both shortcodes YouTube Channel ID and YouTube API Key is needed.
For performance reasons the data is refreshed once every 12 hours. This can be modified with “timeout” parameter (value in hours).
Shortcodes are as follows:
- youtube_views_count – for channel video views count
- youtube_subscribers_count – for channel subscribers count
Parameters are as follows:
- id – YouTube channel ID (How to get YouTube channel ID? https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/3250431?hl=en)
- key – YouTube API key for browser (How to get YouTube API key? https://developers.google.com/youtube/registering_an_application#Create_API_Keys)
- timeout – cache timeout (value in hours) /default is 12 hours/
- [youtube_views_count id=’YOUR_CHANNEL_ID’ key=’YOUR_API_KEY’]
- [youtube_views_count id=’YOUR_CHANNEL_ID’ key=’YOUR_API_KEY’ timeout=’1′]
