Stu's Solar Calc

A simple plug-in widget to allow the display of sunrise/set data.

  1. Upload the unzipped folder and contents to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Include the widget on your sidebar, header or footer as allowed by your theme. This is done on the 'Widgets' admin page which is found in the 'Appearance' section of the admin menu. See screenshot2.png. Drag the widget to the appro- priate section.
  4. Setup the widget to show your picture using the admin window. Your latitude and longitude need to be in decimal degree format. You can find this on many map websites. Google Earth works well for this. The time zone is set with GMT time zone difference. This can be found at many time zone sites, like http://www.worldtimezone.com/ and http://www.time.gov.
  5. Very important: DAYIGHT SAVINGS TIME MUST MANUALLY CHANGED. With differences around the world, and local law changes, it's would be craziness to try and code these. So, when you spring-forward or fall-back, change the Daylight Savings Time checkbox. Lucky for me, I live in Arizona where we don't mess with the time.
