The HubbleSite Daily Image Widget is released under the GNU GPL version 2.0 or later.


Copy the hubblesite-daily-image directory to your wp-content/plugins/ directory and activate the plugin. The widget will appear on the Appearance -> Widgets screen. Embed the widget in one of your sidebars and change the widget options to show or hide different parts of the widget.


I don’t use dynamic sidebars. Is there a template tag I can use to embed the widget?


will do just that.

What do I need to run the unit tests?

PHPUnit and MockPress.
