The following shortcode is only available in the Pro version of the plugin.

The message shortcode allows custom content to be displayed when a user has gained or lost weight over a number of consecutive weight entries. This will allow you to motivate people when they gain weight or congratulate if they lose weight (or vice versa).

Below are some examples of its use:

[wt-message type=lost]
    Well done you have lost weight (since last weight)

[wt-message type=lost consecutive=3] 
    Well done you have lost weight 3 times

[wt-message type=gain]
    Unlucky, you have gained weight since your last entry.

[wt-message type=gain consecutive=3]
    Oh no… you have gained weight 3 times…

Shortcode Arguments

The shortcode supports the following arguments:

Argument Description Options Example

type The type determines whether to check for weight gain or weight loss. ‘gained’ (default)- Gained weight since previous chronlogical entry. ‘lost’ - Lost weight since previous chronlogical entry [wt-message type=’lost’]Message here[/wt-message]
