WP-Mortgage Calculator Widget / Plug in for WordPress

Published on 13/05/08 12:59 AM

We recently created a free Mortgage Calculator plugin that you can easily install in any WordPress blog in under 5 minutes!

How it works:
Hit the calculate button and see the results in real-time on your site. This helps you keep your site visitors focused on your site and your inventory – instead of sending them elsewhere.

If you look at the left sidebar of this blog you can see it in action, and here is an image of the calculator in use

You can download WP-Mortgage Calculator here now! 🙂

Installation instruction for WP-MortgageCalculator:

This free calculator installs in the sidebar of your WordPress blog as a widget. The calculated results appear directly on your website, so you keep your readers engaged and active on your website!

——————————————————

Step 1: Unzip the WP-Mortgage Calculator package and
put in it in your plugins folder located at
wp-content -> plugins

——————————————————

Step 2: after unzipping the files upload them to your remote server using an FTP program.

The (4) files included in this package are
mc_calculate.php
mc_linktext.php
mortgage-calculator-logo.gif
mortgagecalculator.php

——————————————————

Step 3: log in to your WP admin panel, located at
/wp-admin/

Click the plugins link, which will send you to
/wp-admin/plugins.php
and enable the Mortgage Calculator Widget.

——————————————————

Step 4: For older versions of WordPress, inside the WP admin panel click on presentation. Then click on the Widgets sub-menu item. If you are using WordPress 2.5 you should click on Design then Widgets.

Drag the Mortgage Calculator and any other needed widgets (categories, archives, links, pages, etc.) into Sidebar 1.

Click “Save Changes” and your Mortgage Calculator should be live.

Can’t see widgets? Your WordPress theme may not be widget aware. To make it widget aware you need to ensure your theme has a functions.php file and that your sidebar is theme friendly. This Automattic page describes how to make themes widget friendly.
