Wordpress Plugin Configure

Wordpress is a highly flexible blog engine which can be used to build any kind of website, including sophisticated e-commerce stores. If you use Wordpress too, you can add Announcekit widgets easily without editing / modifying your website template.

Step 1

Firstly, you need to install AnnounceKit Wordpress Plugin on your Wordpress.
You can install the plugin from WP Admin > Plugins > Add new and search for AnnounceKit

Step 2

After installation, copy a JavaScript code of your widget from the AnnounceKit dashboard.

Step 3

Go to WP Admin > Settings > Announcekit > Add widget. Paste the JavaScript code you get from the Dashboard and choose a menu item where you want to display the widget.


If you paste the Float type widget JavaScript code the menu list will disappear because that widget type doesn’t need any HTML element.

Step 4

Click Save Changes button, and enjoy AnnounceKit widgets on your Wordpress site.

Troubleshoot

Can I change the position of the widget?

Yes, you can set right, left, top, and bottom values on editing page to fine-tune the position of the widget.

Widget doesn’t appear on the menu

As the plugin attaches the widget automatically, sometimes it cannot find the HTML position of the chosen menu item. You need to specify class name ak-man to the menu item.

  1. Go to WP Admin > Appearance > Menus
  2. Click Sceen Options button on the top of the screen.
  3. Tick CSS Classes option in Show advanced menu properties section
  4. Set ak-man as a value to the CSS Classes field of the menu item. Video

Another reason for this issue is the type of the widget. Only Badge and Line widget types can be attached to the menu. Make sure you have copied the correct JavaScript codes.
