Airliners Widget

Displays an Airliners.net picture (Random, Top Of Yesterday, or specific picture by ID) using official Airliners.net script

This widget allows you to display an Airliners.net aviation picture on your website. You can easily choose between a random picture, the "Top Of Yesterday" picture, or a specific picture by specifying the picture ID in the widget's parameters.

The widget uses a class called "widget_airliners_widget" allowing you to enforce some rendering, as the default block provided by Airliners.net is black with white writing.

Included is airliners-widget.css style sheet that shows how to get the block with gray writing and transparent background. Feel free to edit this file to suit your needs !

This widget comes out of the box with french and german translations.

This widget also supports shortcodes !

Just add a [airliners] shortcode to any of you posts and you'll get a random Airliners.net picture by default ! The shortcode supports two parameters : imgtype and imgid. * imgtype indicates what type of picture you want to show, it can take one of these values : random, yesterday, picture * imgid sets the id of the specific picture you want to show, if 'picture' has been set to imgtype

Shortcode usage samples : [airliners imgtype='yesterday'] Displays the top of yesterday's pictures.

[airliners imgtype='picture' imgid='123456'] Displays the picture corresponding to id '123456'.
