What are the colors widget options

Title: (optional) set a title to the widget Show as dropdown: change the presentation and use a dropdown list with the color name Hide empty: if checked, colors which aren't assigned to a post will be hidden Colors to show: check the colors you want to show. Prefer checking all

How can I show colors tags in the loop

The plugin comes with two useful functions.

<?php the_colors($bull = true, $before = null, $separator = ' ', $after = null); ?>



show colors as bullet and not as word


text to show before listing


separator between each color


text to show after listing

If you don't want to show directly the colors and keep its in a php variable, use this function :

<?php get_the_colors($post_ID = null); ?>

It will return an object array. Refer to this function to see who to use id : http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_get_post_terms

How can I print colors of a specific post outside the loop

Use the second function see below and set the $post_ID.

How can I change the style of the widget/inside post listing

Just edit the hyc-widget.css in the css folder of the plugin.
