Nice Concept, but Too Complex
By ,

I do like the plugin, but the one issue I have is that it is unnecessarily complex.

The thermometer's behavior is controlled with JavaScript and a <canvas> tag, so why does this plugin create a custom post type? A shortcode which passes attributes, in place of a custom post-type, would suffice.

[wpch_thermometer header="2013 Fundraiser" footer="Help us reach our goal!" goal="5000" current="250"]

Aside from making the code more difficult to understand, the custom post-type also adversely affects performance.

Plugin author is very responsive to questions and issues that came up. Even though I am new to WordPress they were patient with all of my questions.

The plugin was very easy to implement and works great. It was needed for my site not to show money raised, but the number of registrations for an event. I am glad this could be used in another way. GREAT JOB and I highly recommend it.
