    I found the bug (probably)
    When i put link to application: F-Stop Media Gallery on finish i see only letter F in the title.
    Sign “-” is ignored, or using in different way?

    How i can fix it?

  • Kuba

    Thx for a great plugin :) I’ve installed it, but it doesn’t work properly. For example: [qr]https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pl.korkosfera.mobile[/qr] – it displays only qr code without app description and logo. What I’m doing wrong?

    I replace this code because de function “file_get_contents” is disabled in my webserver:
    $pagecode = @file_get_contents($url); // grab the code for the entire page
    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
    $pagecode = curl_exec($ch);

    It’s working great now. I have one question. Is it possible to make the QR cacheable? I tried to make the page with 20 or so apps, but the page is loading for very long time in that condition. I’m using w3tc and cloudflare for caching and I think it could be very useful to have the option to make the QR cacheable.

    Again, thanks for such a great plugin

  • techcredo

    @ics Sorry, I’m not sure why you get that irregularity when you modify the code. Good luck!

    I modified the code to have 100×100 image and 100×100 qr codeȘ

    …. cht=qr&chs=100×100&chld=L|1&chl=’.$qrURL.'” style=”float:right;” border:’.$qrcborderc.'” title=”‘.$qrctitle.'” />’.$appiconurl.’ width=”100px” height=”100px” ….

    but i have a problem, sometimes, the qr code is smaller than 100×100,


    what can i do to make the qr code 100x 100, and always be 100×100. Thank you!

    • techcredo

      You don’t have to modify the code to change the size of the QR codes. Just visit the options by going to Settings > Android Market QR Codes in the WordPress Admin Panel.

        i tryed but isnt working :/

      • http://andronews.ro ics

        QR code alignment, QR code size in pixels, QR code border arent working if i change something.

        • techcredo

          Ah, yes. The app images and QR codes currently have a fixed size for the information widgets. It would be difficult to calculate the layout for the app info otherwise. I don’t think that’s mentioned in the settings yet, sorry.

          • http://andronews.ro ics

            so…how can i fix this with qr size? :D

          • ics

            no fix or something? thx!

  • http://andronews.ro ics

    Can you add a line with the price? Is possible?

    • techcredo

      Yes, it’s possible. But the price currency will be the currency of the country where your server is located, so it can be a bit random.

    Actually, I found the solution:

    I’ve copied the if statement as an else if but with play.google.com link ;)

    It works for new links:


    I don’t know if this is the right direction, but it’s a quick patch

    • techcredo

      Nice :) I’ve just updated the plugin to v1.25 and it now accepts both the old Market links and the new Play Store links.

  • http://srbodroid.com Vasilj

    The android market is now using https://play.google.com/store/apps/ links and the plugin broke. Are you going to support the old links with some rewrite script or we should go and search and replace through the database.

    BTW Thanks for the plugin, it works great :D

    • techcredo

      Thanks! I will try to solve it with code, but it seems like the old Market links still work. If you look at this page the QR widgets are being displayed and I haven’t updated the links.

      • http://andronews.ro ics

        old links are working because they are using redirect…i think :-?

        • techcredo

          That’s true. I need to update the plugin to reflect the Market/Play Store changes either way and hopefully I can have a new release ready later this week.

          • http://www.srbodroid.com/ Vasilj

            Thanks for the support ;)

            I think that first patch, till the redirection works, could be rewriting of the play link to market link ;)
