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.
