FAQ

Can I use my own image?

Yes you can, there is a feature to upload your own image.

What type of image does it need to be, are they any specifications?

Use a png with a clear background so that it appears as a button and not a square box.
Also you will want to keep the file size to 500-150px to save on load time.

Can you make this work with my theme?

In some instances people write code for their theme in a non standard way that causes the badges to appear wrong or not at all. If this is the case please email me and I will look at your site and patch the plugin to work. It currently works on 90%+ of sites tested.
