Why did you write this plugin?

My synagogue needed to display the current Portion on the website and I couldn’t find a good plugin to do this. This allows me to display the shortcode in the title of a post/page or within the content of a page/post.

How do I use it?

Example shortcodes using Zip Code:

[hebcal_sc category=”parashat” param=”title” zip=”30066″]
[hebcal_sc category=”parashat” param=”hebrew” zip=”30066″]
[hebcal_sc category=”roshchodesh” param=”title” zip=”30066″]
[hebcal_sc category=”roshchodesh” param=”hebrew” zip=”30066″]
[hebcal_sc category=”candles” param=”title” zip=”30066″]
[hebcal_sc category=”candles” param=”hebrew” zip=”30066″]

Example shortcode using Longitude, Latitude, and Time Zone ID:

[hebcal_sc category=”candles” param=”title” longitude=”-84.500434″ latitude=”34.024356″ tzid=”America/New_York”]
