WordPress plugin to lock site for Shabat
| Posted by Moishe Beshkin in Shabat Keeper
I think it is good idea to close sites, related to Judaism for Shabat. This will not make non-observant Jews to break Shabat laws.
This morning, I’ve got an idea, that it would be nice to make a plugin for WordPress to lock the site for shabat. I looked to the repository of Worpress plugins and haven’t found anything related.
Then I decided to make a fork from any under-construction plugin. I found a simple and really nice one.
UnderConstruction by Jeremy Massel and modified to meet my needs.
This is my first plugin for WordPress, so don’t blame me too much.
1. Download it from here.
2. unpack to wp-content/plugins
3. Enable it
4. Go to Settings -> Shabat Keeper and enter Lattitude, Longitude and GMT Offset
Here you are. 18 minutes before Sunset on Friday your site will be locked and will return on Motzey Shabat.
I really need testing on this plugin. So everybody welcome to add suggestions and bug here.
