How it Works

Create a dynamic progress bar that can be used in your posts, pages or widgets. Each progress bar offers unique settings to customize the appearance and the target, including which membership levels to count in the total goal progress calculation.

After installing and activating the plugin, you will be able to add a new Goal Progress Bar via a shortcode or Block (if you are using the Block Editor as part of WordPress v5.0+).

Adding the Progress Bar to Your Site

This Add On supports a shortcode or block implementation. Sites using the WordPress v5.0+ Block Editor can insert the block via either method. All other sites can use the shortcode method described below. Each Goal Progress Bar has unique settings and can be configured to fit your needs. You can set up more than one Goal Progress Bar on a single page or insert them on multiple pages of your site. Both implementations feature the same settings:

  • Type of Goal: Choose whether your goal is tracking revenue, sales, or member count.
  • Levels to Track: Choose the levels to include in your goal tracking.
  • Goal Amount: The numeric revenue value (no currency symbol) or the number of sales or signups to reach your goal.
  • Date: Specify a timeframe for your goal. You can set a specific start and end date for calculating your goal’s progress.
  • Text Before: Text to display before the Goal Progress value to date.
  • Text After: Text to display after the total Goal Amount.
  • Font Color: The color of the text overlaid on the Goal Progress Bar.
  • Fill Color: The color of the progress “thermometer”.
  • Background Color: The background color of the entire bar.

Goal Progress Bar Block for Paid Memberships ProIf you’re using the WordPress v5.0+ Block Editor, you can place the Goal Progress Bar Block in your posts and pages. If you want to show the same Goal on multiple pages, you can use a “Reusable Block” or copy the same settings from one Block to another.

Block settings allow you to customize your progress bar, including whether this is a revenue goal, sales goal, or number of signups goal, which levels to include in goal tracking, as well as custom dates, wording and colors. Refer to the settings list above for help in setting up your block.

The Add On adds a new [pmpro_goal] shortcode that you can place in a page, post or in a widget. Shortcode attributes allow you to customize your progress bar, including whether this is a revenue goal, sales goal, or number of signups goal, which levels to include in goal tracking, as well as custom wording and colors.
