Plugin doesn't setup as instruction guide, there is no business search function to link your business, must obtain api key, and this is not developers fault, but on following link to login to yelp there is no clear path to get developer api key.

Requires Yelp API access, not just typing in the business name as the installation states. Fine for business owners, but adds a large hurdle for developers

I was asked to add a small block so users could click and go to Yelp to review my customers services. I installed this product, and was immediately amazed at how neat it looked. Because it was so simple, I had it running after tying in the Yelp API, in less than 10 minutes. I was really impressed that it 'pulled' my customers yelp rating, displayed in a very Yelp looking way and even put the last 3 yelp reviews in the block without so much as me doing really anything but following simple instructions. After my client saw it, they were extremely pleased, but they asked that the 3 reviews portion be removed. I scratched my head as there was no option to turn this ability off / on so I messaged the creators. Within a few HOURS I had a reply! They gave me an elegant solution by using some embedded CSS to 'hide' the display and perfection was obtained! THIS IS AN EXCELLENT MOD/Addon! Jim Shimota - WP/Drupal developer.
