Debt Reduction Calculator


This plugin displays functional debt reduction/debt payoff calculator. It shows people how they can pay debt faster or how much they need to pay extra each month in order to be debt free after chosen period of time.

To display the calculator simply place {{debt-reduction-calculator}} mask in the content of a page or post. Of course the plugin should be activated first.


  1. Upload debtpayoffcalc.phpto the/wp-content/plugins/` directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Configure the CSS class in the admin screen in Plugins/Debt Reduction Calculator. This is optional, the calculator will work fine without any CSS classes assigned.
  4. Place {{debt-reduction-calculator}} mask in the content of a page or post. The calculator will appear on the place of this tag


Can I change the CSS?

Yes, you can change it in Plugins/Debt Reduction Calculator page

Can I put Ads On the Page With The Calculator?

Yes, you can put Adsense or any other ads

Should I link back to the plugin page

It’s not required but a link to will be highly appreciated.

Why doesn’t this use WordPress shortcodes?

Because they weren’t available when I first wrote the plugin, and I have to keep the format for backward compatibility. Technically it makes no difference, really.
