WordPress is one of the established building blocks the Raidious Platform Development team relies on when duty calls to develop a website for a client. We have found it greatly reduces development time, and gives us and our clients access to resources like development communities that don’t exist with totally custom solutions.
Raidious recently had the pleasure of building a website for Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services. We decided to go with a custom WordPress theme and custom plugins. One of the widgets they requested was a Homeland Security threat level meter.
This code is based off of the “US Department of Homeland Insecurity Idiocy Level” plugin found here: http://blog.acidchaos.de/downloads/plugin-us-department-of-homeland-insecurity-idiocy-level-for-wordpress/
As you can see, the plugin at the above link was meant as a bit of a joke. But we cleaned it up a bit, updated the images and voila!
You can download the plug-in here.
If you would like to update the imagery, we have included a PSD. Enjoy!
