ThermX Snippet Tutorial
I could tell you how many hours it takes to develop a MODX extra Transport Package complete with a build script, properties, multiple MODX elements, internationalized strings, error checks, and then fully test it, but you wouldn't believe me. If you use this extra and like it, please consider donating. The suggested donation for this extra is $5.00, but any amount you want to give is fine (really). For a one-time donation of $50.00 you can use all of my non-commercial extras with a clear conscience.
This snippet is for use with MODx Revolution. ThermX creates a fundraising thermometer for placement on a web page.
Minimal Snippet Tag
[[!ThermX? &thermxProgress=`2500` &thermxMax=`7500`]]
&thermxProgress -- Current amount raised &thermxMax -- Fundraising goal &thermxFormat -- [optional] format argument for money_format() function defauts to `%(#10n`. &thermxLocale -- [optional] format argument for set_locale() function. defaults to 'en_US'
[[+thermx_progress]] -- Put this where you want the current amount raised to appear. [[+thermx_thermometer]] -- Put this where you want the thermometer to appear.
