I’ll tell you what all the options are for.

  • Default username
    With the NaNoWriMo Stats plugin, you will add some stats to your website. In every chart and widget, you can choose a username. However, you can also change the default username setting. When no username is given in the function for a chart or widget, the default is token. If you are looking for how to call those functions, have a look at the Shortcodes page.
  • Default region
    Pretty much the same thing as the default username. Regions are used in the region widgets. They aren’t used that much and it’s most likely you will never use them. But here is the default region! You can override this setting in each widget if you want.
  • Default width
    This setting is only for the wordcount history chart. It allows you to give all the charts on your site a default width. The default can be overridden in shortcodes.
  • Default height
    Well, I don’t have to explain that, do I?
  • Default WC color
    Stands for Default WordCount color. This setting is only for the wordcount history chart. It will change the color of the wordcount bars. This setting is a default, it can be overridden in shortcodes. You should use an HTML code. More information on this is on wikipedia.
  • Default goal color
    In the charts, there is a goal line. It shows you what your goal is for a specific day. You can change the color of that line here. It is also changeable per chart in the shortcode. You should use an HTML code. More information on this is on wikipedia.
  • Default todays words color
    Change the default color of the daily wordcount bars. The color can be overridden using a shortcode variable. You should use an HTML code. More information on this is on wikipedia.
  • Title
    This option is not a default. It cannot be overridden in single charts. It will make a title above your stats chart. If you don’t want a title, keep this field empty. Use %u to show the username the chart is for.
    Example: “Stats for %u” would display “Stats for camilstaps”, in my case.
