Free Puzzles Widget and Shortcode

Description

Keep your website visitors on your site longer with free Rebus puzzles. This plugin allows you to show puzzles in your posts, pages and widget areas. All puzzles are rated G which is suitable for all. Puzzles are requested from www.rebuses.co/free automatically or you can define a specific puzzle number to show.

How it works:

You visitor views a page with the plugin puzzle on, the plugin then requests from www.rebuses.co/free a puzzle thumbnail, a link (URL) to that puzzle for a clue and answer and finally a page title for the image alt attribute.

What is shown on your webpage?

A title, which you define in the widgets area. The Rebus puzzle, a link to the help solve the puzzle (http://www.rebuses.co/how-to-solve-a-rebus-puzzle/) and a link to the puzzle itself on www.rebuses.co for a clue and answer to that puzzle.

How to use:

Use the widget section to place the puzzles on your site or enter shortcode [puzzle] for random puzzles or [puzzle id=”100″] (replacing 100 with another puzzle number) for specific numbered puzzles on your posts and pages.

Extra Information:

This plugin DOES link back to http://www.rebuses.co in order to give help on solving, clues and answers. All links open in a new window.
