    Hi Taylorde,

    Thank you very much for this amazing plugin!
    It's just what I was looking for!

    I was wondering if it was possible for you to add support to short sentences onto the progress bars themselves?

    To get a feel what I mean:

    I currently use your progress bars to track my World of Warcraft Guilds raid progress.

    http://www.klr-guild.eu <= can check it out here, left side of the WP site.

    As you see there's multiple Bars with titles above them. What I'd like to be able to do is write those onto the bars themselves negating the need to having text widgets above to describe the bar below.

    Regards,

    RugaCH

    Setting arbitrary text on top of the bar using the widget or shortcode isn't supported and probably won't ever be. Dealing with overflow text would be an issue, and it's really just designed to show the actual progress textually (which is better for SEO and screen readers when accompanied with text that explains what the progress is toward)

    That said, it's probably not impossible to overlay the widget title with a bit of clever CSS absolute positioning or even javascript replacement...

    The newest version of the plugin's widget allows for both a widget title and a description below the bar if that helps.

    Thanks for the kudos though, I'm glad it's working out for you!
