As a Ravelry designer it’s important to also have details of your knitting / crochet patterns on your own website.
With this plugin it’s as easy as filling in your Rav designer name, choosing some basic options, and that’s it!
Current features include:
Features soon to be added:
1. Upload the ‘ravelry-designs-widget’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
3. Add the ‘Ravelry Designs’ widget to any widget area or use the shortcode in any post/page
Ravelry Designs Widget provides 2 different ways of displaying your Ravelry patterns; widget and shortcode.
The Ravelry Designs Widget widget is the easiest way to display your patterns. Enter your Ravelry designer name (note: not the same as your username!) and choose whatever other options you need.
To display patterns inside a post or page rather than a widget area, you need a shortcode.
Custom settings (see options table below for all options and defaults):
[sb_ravelry_designs designer="michelle may" layout="layout_2" show="3" cols="3"]
If you’re using the widget, the options are all clearly marked. You can’t go far wrong.
If you’re using the shortcode, here’s what you need to know:
|cols||How many columns to display||1, 2, 3, 4||3|
|designer||Your Ravelry designer name (not the same thing as your username)||Valid Ravelry designer name||Michelle May (yeah if you don't put in a name, it'll show mine)|
|layout||Which of the available layouts to use.||layout_1, layout_2||layout_2|
|show||Maximum number of patterns to show.||Any number||3|
|new_tab||Should pattern links open in a new tab/window?||Yes, No||No|
