I’ve been using this for several months now to highlight a fundraising campaign we want to draw attention to. The plugin works great and is quickly modified using a shortcode, like: [progressbar_striped class="active" width="50" color="#fff" bg_color="#aa0000" text="50% to budget… and getting closer!"] Much thanks to the developer!
