The widget back end with multiple configuration options.
I’ve uploaded the widget, but no results are showing
You need to go to your widget configuration screen and tick the boxes for the lottery results you would like to show.
What does chmod the dat directory to 777 mean?
Once you have uploaded the plugin, navigate to the dat directory in the uk-lottery-results-widget folder. In most FTP clients, you then right click and select something like ‘File Permissions’ or ‘File Attributes’. You then need to tick all the read and write options or manually type 777 if there is an option to enter a numeric value.
The widget uses wz_tooltip by the late Walter Zorn (file included). The reason for this is that it has no dependency on either Jquery or Prototype and also no image dependencies.
If for any reason you have hardcoded the use of wz_tooltip.js into your WordPress installation already, there is a define clearly documented at the top of the plugin php file so you can disable the loading of it.
Can I change the look and feel of the widget via CSS?
Yes, simply edit style.css in the plugin directory. All CSS elements are documented and have been provided to make it easy to alter the styling of the widget if required. The widget is of course designed to fit in automatically with your chosen theme, but the option is there to tweak if required.
How can I edit the rollover styling?
There are several documented options in the js/wz_tooltip.js file which can be changed if you wish.
Are there any other conditions to use this plugin?
No, however we would appreciate it if you tick the box in the widget admin to enable a small link back to us.
