Reviews

Simple. To the point.

Of the three plugins that do this function, this was the only one I could get to work.
It’s very barebones, but does what it needs to.

I added the following CSS to pretty it up a bit:

.tf-tracker-item {
float:left;
width:25%;
}

.tf-tracker-value{
text-align: center;
font-size: 1.5em!important;
font-weight: bold;
}

.tf-tracker-label {
display: block;
width:100%;
text-align: center;
margin-top:-20px;
}
