Buoy Plugin

This Buoy Alerts WordPress plugin will display the current conditions for any buoy available on the buoyalerts.com site in your wordpress sidebar.

How often is the buoy data updated

Buoy data is updated every 30 - 60 minutes.

Why isn't the data changing?

Periodically buoys go offline, or go adrift. In this case the last available reading will be displayed.

Will this plugin slow down my site?

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.
