Ron Paul 2012 WordPress Plugin

I wanted to show support for Ron Paul on my WordPress website with a simple badge or button. Surprised at not finding any plugins for Ron Paul in the Directory, I decided to be the first. You can learn more in the following post, or download and install via the WordPress Plugin Directory. Or if you prefer, you can install direct via the comfort of the WP Admin Area, via Plugins > Add New. Just search for “Ron Paul 2012” and you should find it.

Update (2012/11/08): Well the elections are over and Ron Paul was not elected to be the next president of the United States. Deeper implications aside, the Ron Paul 2012 plugin is now discontinued. If you’re looking for a WordPress plugin to display a banner, button, or badge on your website, check out my plugin Show Support Ribbon.</update>

About the Plugin

This plugin is meant to simple, and contains only two files:

  • readme.txt
  • ron-paul-2012.php

The “Ron Paul” badge is displayed on the front-end, and is created with inline CSS (no images) to keep everything super simple and straightforward. To use the plugin, visit the “Ron Paul 2012” settings page, choose your options, save changes, and done.

Screenshots

Here are screenshots of the three pre-defined badge styles (Circle, Banner, and Ribbon). Note that you can add your own styles to customize as desired (see “Customizing” section, below).
