Flow-Flow Social Streams for WordPress is premium WordPress social plugin to display social feeds in beautiful grid with optional filters and live search. Plugin is responsive and works well on mobile devices. Smart caching with server task allows to deliver content blazingly fast without long page loading, it’s especially crucial when many networks are pulled or you have big traffic (your users won’t see any API calls limit errors using your tokens).

How plugin works

You create streams in Flow-Flow admin and copy generated shortcodes. Then you put these shortcodes in any block on any page of your site. Plugin has special compact mode for narrow blocks like sidebar. When stream is shown first time, it’s got cached (takes more time for initial caching but then it will show blazingly fast) and rest of visitors see this cache for cache lifetime. So for example if you have set 20 min cache and 10000 users visit your site within these 20 min, it’s only one time plugin will request API to pull data, for the rest of time users will see cached data almost instantly. Considering that server runs cache renew task in background it guarantees plugin’s amazing performance.

How multiple feeds actually work

First of all you can create unlimited Flow-Flow streams on your site. The magic thing is that you then add as much social feeds from one or different social networks as you want. For example, you want to include in one stream 3 twitter accounts, 1 twitter hashtag, 2 google+ accounts and 5 facebook feeds. No problem! Here is a visual scheme:

\\

Admin panel provides clear indication of important stuff and is very convenient. You can easily manage your streams from one compact list.

\\

Filter

Filter is optional feature of Flow-Flow. If you would like to use plugin with complex streams this feature could be handy.

Requirements

  • You need to have jQuery version 1.7 or later on you WP server.
  • Some network API require secure connection to send data so your server should have SSL certificate installed. In the most cases SSL is provided by hosting. We use private APIs because it’s more secure obviously, no one sees your secure data (tokens etc) on client side and these APIs provide more possibilities for streaming.
    If you don’t have SSL check this article to consider free and lowcost options.

    Next networks require secure connection: Twitter, Facebook, G+, Instagram.
