Dear readers,

2 weeks ago I have released v2.0.0 of the earthquake monitor. A lot has changed in this release.

Today v2.0.1 is released with some little bug fixes!

  • Added a new variable {tsunami}. When enabled in menu and added to the template it shows a tsunami icon when a major event in an oceanic region has occured.
  • Added a new variable {type} that will display the type of event (earthquake ,quarry, chemical explosion e.t.c.)
  • Added shortcode [eqmonitor] to add (multiple) earthquake lists in pages or posts (more details in the Shortcode examples and parameters section of this readme)
  • Switched to Semantic Versioning MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH
  • All links that take care of JSON data-exchange are now HTTPS (SSL)
  • All links to PHP documentation are now HTTPS
  • Adjusted the yellow pager color to be a bit more darker (and readable on white backgrounds) (This can be altered in the CSS)
  • You can now use this widget multiple times on the same site. Each widget has an unique identifier and uses itโ€™s own unique cache.

You can try it out here :

Oh, and here is a live example of the shortcode that has been added.

<eqmonitor id=’unique1′ cachetimer=’3600′ numberedlist=’true’ showmax=’10’ showlink=’false’ minmagnitude=’7′ showdaysback=’364′>

(Where < = [ and > = ] , can’t paste that or the shortcode is executed :))
