This Buoy Alerts WordPress plugin will display the current conditions for any buoy available on the buoyalerts.com site in your wordpress sidebar.
Buoy data is updated every 30 - 60 minutes.
Periodically buoys go offline, or go adrift. In this case the last available reading will be displayed.
Absolutely not. We request and cache data on your wordpress site every 15 minutes. At most, it will add a total of 4 requests per hour (max) to your site. JSON is used as a transport layer, keeping things speedy and fast.
The plugin page has our contact info, you can also hit us up on twitter @buoyalerts
