Widgets

The Pro version of the Weight Loss Tracker currently supports the following widgets. You can add these Widgets to your widget areas / side bars by logging into the WP admin panel and going to Appearance > Widgets.

1.Chart #

The Chart widget allows you to display a chart within the desired widget area. It has the following options:

Each option is self explanatory, the colours and settings for the chart are derived from the main admin page unless you have specified it at the widget level.

The widget / chart will not be displayed if no weight data was found.

2.Form #

The following widget is only available in the Pro version of the plugin.

The form widget allows you to place quick entry weight in your side bars / widget areas. You have the following settings when placing a form widget:

The settings are fairly self explanatory, three to bare in mind are “Allow user to specify date”, “Hide Measurements” and “Hide Photos”. The first, allows you to show or hide a date picker. If hidden, the date for the weight entry will be set to the current date. The latter options will allow you to hide Measurement and Photo fields respectively.

Below are examples with the picker enabled and disabled:
