    Hi there,

    There’s a glitch in the plugin: in the Edit Progressbar page, when I fill out the Progress Title field, quotation marks (specifically double quotation marks (like “these”) cause the content of the Progress Title not to display when I reload the page. The title’s still recorded, but the field displays as blank. Because I had a few Progress Bars in the same set that had double quotes, I was very confused as to what I was updating.

    Also, a feature I’d like to respectfully request: I’d really be grateful if there were an option for tracking by proportion rather than percent, since everytime I want to update, I have to calculate the percentage myself. I use Progressbar as a writing tracker, specifically tracing wordcounts from a target, though I could conceive of people using it to track other specific target numbers or amounts: kilograms lost, gophers caught, TPS reports filed, etc.

    It’d be great for me if the user could input a target number and unit, and a separate number for the current state of the project, and then just update the current state count as my project progresses, while the Progress Tracker automatically calculates my progress as a percentage of the total target number. (Displaying the current and total target numbers would be a nice optional bonus option.)

    Thanks!
    Gord
