This “Quick Start Guide” is the fastest to way to get the ZodiacPress birth report working on your site. (This assumes you’ve already installed and activated the plugin.)
- In your WordPress dashboard, go to ZodiacPress –> Settings, and click the Misc tab.
- Enter your GeoNames Username and click “Save Changes.”
(You can quickly create a free GeoNames account here. This is required because the plugin uses GeoNames webservice to get birth place coordinates and timezone ids for the birth reports. After you create your GeoNames account, you have to enable their free web services by going to their manage account page and click to enable them at the bottom where it says “Free Web Services.”)
Optional: if you have a Premium GeoNames account (instead of a free account), then you should take advantage of Enhanced GeoNames.
- Add the
[birthreport]shortcode to a page or post. To do this, paste
[birthreport]on a page or post where you want the form to appear. This is where the birth report form will appear. Go to this page on the front of your site to generate a birth report.
That’s it for the “Quick Start” setup. This allows you to generate a basic report which lists the planets in the signs, planets in the houses, and aspects. Interpretations will not be included in the report until you enter your own interpretations. See the Full Setup Guide for how to do this.
