What if I want to add multiple live trackers?

If you want to add multiple live trackers with different look and feel, you can generate shortcodes from them from the plugin Admin page and insert the shortcode on where you want the widget to appear.

Will this plugin affect the loading time?

When you click the Save button the codes will be cached in files and there is no database queries at all :).

Does the plugin modify the code I write in the editor?

No, the code is printed exactly as in the editor. It is not modified/checked/validated in any way. You take the full responsability for what is written in there.

My code doesn’t show on the website

Try one of the following:
1. If you are using any caching plugin (like “W3 Total Cache” or “WP Fastest Cache”), then don’t forget to delete the cache before seing the code printed on the website.
2. Make sure the code is in Published state (not Draft or in Trash).

Does it work with a Multisite Network?


What if I change the theme?

The plugin is independent of the theme and they will persist through a theme change. This is particularly useful.

Can I update the style of the widget?
