Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get help or support for this plugin?

In short, very easily. But before you read any further, take a look at [Asking For WordPress Plugin Help And Support Without Tears before firing off a question. In order of preference, you can ask a question on the WordPress support forum; this is by far the best way so that other users can follow the conversation. You can ask me a question on Twitter; I’m @vicchi(http://twitter.com/vicchi). Or you can drop me an email instead. I can’t promise to answer your question but I do promise to answer and do my best to help.

Is there a web site for this plugin?

Absolutely, it’s the page you’re reading,  the WP Nokia Auth home page which always contains the latest information. There’s also the official WordPress plugin repository page and the source for the plugin is on GitHub as well.

Nokia Maps? Really?

Yes. Really. At the time of writing (April 2012) 196 countries, 75M Places, 2.4M map changes a day. That sort of really. All available through a set of developer friendly APIs.

OK. Nokia Maps. I get it. But why register?

The Nokia Location APIs work if you don’t register. But they work even better and you can do even more if you do register. Take transactional limits. Unregistered users of the Location APIs get 1 million transactions over a lifetime. 1 million sounds a lot but it soon mounts up. Registered users get 2 million transactions. Per month. Plus a whole lot more.

Why are you so pro Nokia Maps?

A disclaimer is in order. I work for Nokia’s Location & Commerce group, that produces Nokia Maps. I see what goes into the map and what gets displayed. I’m very pro Nokia Maps for just this reason.

I want to amend/hack/augment this plugin; can I do the same?
