Easily insert progress meters into your content and/or sidebars.
If you are participating in NaNoWriMo, ProgPress can automatically track your progress. Just enable the additional ProgPress - NaNoWriMo Support plugin (in addition to ProgPress), and set the
attribute to your NaNoWriMo username (this is a change from last year where your user id was used).
[progpress title="My NaNoWriMo Progress" nanowrimo="jczorkmid" label="words"]
So as to not overload their servers, the plugin caches your word count info, so it may not update immediately when you update your word count at nanowrimo.org.
Note that as of November 10, 2011 the NaNoWriMo Word Count API is not yet officially released. At times it seems to return invalid errors saying your user doesn't exist, or you don't have a novel in progress this year. In my testing this clears itself up after a bit, and once some data has been loaded WordPress will cache it rather than continue to display errors if it keeps going up and down.
