    The developer seems to lack giving any instructions beyond a video which is hopeless.
    Why not give an example, and CSS classes we can copy & paste into buttons or text?

    This really deserves 5 stars, but get 4 stars because of lack of decent instructions.

    I don’t have the patience to watch a video and pause, type out a class when I want to create my own widget or place it in a page and NOT a menu.

    A real shame since 30 seconds of the developer writing instructions is all it would need.

    Anyway, in it’s very basic form you can do this:
    <span class=”afr-normal”>A</span>
    <span class=”afr-large”>A</span>
    <span class=”afr-xlarge”>A</span>

    But then you’d need to make your own CSS for styling the cursor, and sizes of those 3 A’s if you want it too look good. Why doesn’t this plugin have it?

    Right now, I’m adding my own shortcode and using this plugin core to make my own version!

    I’m sorry to read the instructions were not clear enough.

    This started as a project for a client which I decided to give back to the community. Then, this “1 hour” sub-project to give back was transformed into many hours to create a settings page, create the plugin, create the “read me” file, translate it to english, give support, do a video…

    … and it seems like it’s not enough. I’m truly sorry you don’t have the patience to watch the free video I made so you can use this plugin for free.

    I’ll add your code to the instructions.

    Someone told me I should not release this project as it would backfire. Maybe I should have kept it for me.

    If you code something nice, you can submit a pull requrest here:

    Think twice before publishing the code you make… giving stuff for free can backfire.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Hi Maxime,

    Sorry if I sounded like I didn’t appreciate your plugin, I do, and I know some work has gone into this and I appreciate you’ve shared it, I’m just shocked at not having an simple CSS examples for the average user for those wanting to use it straight after installing.
    Hence 4-stars, it’s still very good, I am using it and will learn how to use Github to consider adding what I’ve done.

    For anyone else wanting a bit of CSS, here’s what I use:

    #textresizer {float:right;}
    .textresize1 {font-size:20px; cursor:pointer;margin:2px;}
    .textresize2 {font-size:25px; cursor:pointer;margin:2px;font-weight: 600;}
    .textresize3 {font-size:33px; cursor:pointer;margin:2px;font-weight: 600;}

    And although I made my own shortcode, it simply outputs this:

    <div id="textresizer">
    <span class="afr-normal textresize1">A</span>
    <span class="afr-large textresize2">A</span>
    <span class="afr-xlarge textresize3">A</span>

    And this wonderful plugin does the rest!

    I’ve added the code in the support thread.

    Thank you.
