PS! If you’re looking for a video game-related WordPress theme, consider our PowerUp theme (full details here).


  • Default appearance if stream ONLINE
  • Default appearance if stream OFFLINE
  • Main Settings
  • Positioning Options
  • Customization Options


  1. Upload /stream-status-for-twitch/ to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Use the “Appearance->Customize->Stream Status for Twitch Plugin” screen to configure and customize the plugin


Guess it’s ok but

There are too many free plugins like this and it's a real deal breaker that the free version have no option to disable the floating bar. Using a widget is a total waste of time since there is the floating bar no matter what you do. Basically, the free version is more useless than it sounds.

Simple & Reliable

1. It does what it's intended to do. Shows the online/offline status of the channel, with customization available for each status message. 2. It works well, even the cache speedups or CSS/HTML/JavaScript optimizations don't interfere with it's functionality. 3. It's light on the memory/cache, easy to set up, is small and not in the way of the customer/reader/visitor's site-viewing experience.

That what i searched!

This Plugin include that what i am searching for, Thank u very much! it would be nice when u can add things like: - Multiple Streams, show that users that Online now. - Changeable size

Very nice plugin!

I love this Plugin! Very easy to use and it looks nice on almost every theme. The only function i'm missing is to use multiple Twitch-Channels and to set the order which one should be shown if multiple channels are live. And I don't understand why the settings are under "Customize" but thats all fine. 🙂 Thanks again for the awesome plugin!
