To display the graphic results, include the following code in your theme:

Can I include it in a Widget?

As of 0.6.8, you will see a new widget (Appearance > Widgets) for the Fundraising Thermometer Plugin for WordPress graphic.

Why can’t I see any graphics?

There are two common reasons graphics are not appearing.

Check that your wp-content/downloads/fundraising-thermometer-plugin-for-wordpress/ folder (and all subfolders) is readable (chmod 755).

Ensure the plugin folder is named fundraising-thermometer-plugin-for-wordpress, not ourprogress as in earlier versions.

Short Codes

In a post, you can add [show_ourprogress_graphic] or [show_ourprogress] to return the graphic file or amount donated. If you want to show the target amount in a post, use [show_ourprogress_target]

My local currency isn’t displaying correctly!

In some cases, local currency needs to be set in the code by adding the line setlocale(LC_MONETARY, ‘en_US’); immediately under the first */ for example:

Version: 0.2.5
*/
setlocale(LC_MONETARY, ‘en_US’);

How do I format the numbers?

The plugin uses standard php money_format(); formating.

Is this plugin stable?

Until I upgrade the version number to 1.x, I still consider this plugin to be under development but it has been tested and works well.
