Introducing the WeatherWizz wordpress plugin

The WeatherWizz wordpress plugin gives you amazing flexibility to display live data on your own website pages or posts. 

 

Using the plugin is easy with just a few simple steps.

 

Real-time weather dashboard for personal weather stations

Using the WeatherWizz wordpress plugin

The WeatherWizz wordpress plugin is only active for Patrons of WeatherWizz. If you are not yet a Patron or a user of WeatherWizz, simply sign up here to create an account and then sign up with Patreon to become a Patron. 

Step 1. On the plugin page, enter your WeatherWizz Station ID (this can be found at the top right of your account page) and then click “Get”.

Step 2. This will bring up a list of shortcodes for each sensor that you supply to WeatherWizz from your weather station. Choose the sensor you want to display on your website and copy the shortcode.

Step 3. Using a text editor in wordpress, simply paste the shortcode where you want your sensor data to appear. See examples below.

Note: There’s no need to refresh the page! The WeatherWizz wordpress plugin will automatically update the sensor values every 30 seconds 🙂

Examples

Integrate dynamically changing weather data in text

You can easily include live weather data in a sentence or paragraph simply by pasting in the shortcode where you want the data to appear. For example,  you might write some text that says:

If the current temperature is 27.2, then this would appear as “The current temperature in my garden is 27.2 degrees celsius” on your wordpress published page. The temperature data will automatically update every 30 seconds. Here is some text that is using live data updating every 30 seconds from two WeatherWizz personal weather stations:

“Today the temperature in my garden is c. The wind is blowing at km/h and the Humidity is around %. My friend’s weather station is reporting c in their garden.”

Display live data from one or more weather stations in a table

You can also display your weather data in a table by pasting the shortcodes into the relevant table cells. You might also wish to add the relevant unit symbol after the shortcode (e.g., % or mbar). For example:

You can also combine the data from mutiple weather stations by simply pasting the shortcodes for each station into the relevant table cells. For example:

Here is an example of a table showing live data updating every 30 seconds from two WeatherWizz personal weather stations:
