TOPlist

Description

This plug-in allows for easy integration of web statistics service TOPlist.cz into your blog run by WordPress. Plug-in adds a new widget (called TOPlist) to WordPress and by placing the widget on your page (sidebar) you integrate TopList.cz into your blog. It is common to put the code for such service into the theme template, but my solution utilizing it as a widget allows to run the statistics regardless of the theme used – you can switch the themes and it works all the time. The widget contains complete configuration (displayed icon, detailed analytics etc.).

FAQ

Since version 3.2 you can also specify how to display the widget (logo) in the sidebar, you can center or hide it. This should normally be done via the theme css, but some users are not skilled in editing css styles or they might not have permission to change it, so I have added such option to specify the display directly in the widget config.

If you prefer to set the widget display in the theme css (as it should be), then for centering the widget use:

.widget_toplist_cz {text-align:center}

eventually for hiding the widget:

.widget_toplist_cz {display:none}
