WP Pace

Description

Create an automatic page load progress bar. Based on Pace – Automatic page load progress bar. Javascript by Zack Bloom CSS by Adam Schwartz. Themes inspired by Mary Lou

See a working demo here: pace.jamesdbruner.com

Cool Features:

  • Customize the color of the progress bar with an easy to use color picker
  • Choose which progress bar ‘theme’ you want to use from a dropdown list
  • Decide whether you want to have the progress bar on every page or use the shortcode to add it to just a few specific pages/posts
  • The shortcode allows you to have different colored progress bars with varying themes on a page to page basis.

How to use the shortcode:

There are two attributes you can use

  • color
  • theme

Example: [pace color="#29d9dd" theme="minimal"] or just [pace] will work fine. (the default color is #29d9dd and the default theme is minimal)

There are ten themes to choose from

  • Minimal
  • Flash
  • Barbershop
  • MacOSX
  • Fill-Left
  • Flat-Top
  • CornderIndicator
  • Bounce
  • Big Counter
  • Center Circle
