Healthy BMI Calculator WordPress Plugin

This is one of two Plugins I recently released to the WordPress community that I had developed for my personal health blog, http://health.sandym.ca.

I found myself calculating my BMI fairly often as I was losing weight. I wanted a quick and easy way to do this and find out what weight I needed to be to finally be considered a healthy weight.

I also wanted both metric measure and US style measurements. I looked and couldn’t find anything that did what I wanted to so put this together.

All it does is adds a calculator to your site either via a Widget or Shortcode [sm_bmi_calculator].

The only settings you have for the widget are the title and the color you want for the background of the results.

Health Progress WordPress Plugin

This is one of two Plugins I recently released to the WordPress community that I had developed for my personal health blog, http://health.sandym.ca.

It is pretty simple plugin but it does exactly what I was looking for it to do and hopefully others will find it useful as well.

I wanted a way to keep track of some basic measurements from when I started working at becoming healthy. Since I started a blog I decided I would display it on there as well.

So this plugin creates a Widget that will let you display what ever measurements you would like.

Once the plugin is installed all you need to do is go to the Settings page in your dashboard, set the number of fields you want to track, then fill in your starting measurements and the date you’re starting.

Then go to the Widgets area drag it to the area you want to display and fill in your current measurements. Then whenever you want to update just go back into the widget settings and update the current measurements.
