In the Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy, Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa (or perhaps Pseudo-Agrippa) outlines a method for generating a sigil from a name. This is a WordPress plugin that duplicates the method and does most of the work for you.
These instructions will be here eventually.
This plugin provides two shortcodes.
This shortcode prints out the frontend form that allows the calculation of the sigils. It can take a couple of arguments.
labelsets the label for the form, which defaults to "Enter spirit name:"
classchanges the class for the
divaround the form, which default to "fbop-form"
outputtoggles the inclusion of a default output
div, and defaults to
Here is the most basic usage, which should be sufficient for most sites:
And here is some more advanced usage, demonstrating the defaults:
[fbop_form label="Enter spirit name:" class="fbop-form" output=true]
If you turned off the default output
div in the
fbop_form, you can use this shortcode to customize an output tag of your very own. It takes two arguments:
typesets the type of output tag. This defaults to "div", but "span" or "p" could also work. Note that the output will be an
olelement, so plan accordingly.
classsets the class for the output tag.
Here is an example outlining the default argument values:
[fbop_output type="div" class="fbop-output"]
If you want to get really nerdy and create your own HTML form, you can do so. You will need to use the
fbop-inputshould be a text input element.
fbop-buttonshould be a clickable element.
fbop-outputshould be a DIV or SPAN that accepts the output.
Here is a very simple example of what a custom HTML form could look like:
<form> <input id="fbop-input" type="text"> <button id="fbop-button" type="button">Calculate</button> </form> <div id="fbop-output"></div>
This plugin is also an experiment in using ClojureScript to write WordPress plugins. It may be a ridiculous ride with lots of mistakes. Enjoy it!
