This plugin will allow you to use the [badge] shortcode to display a helpful and valid html snippet to encourage others to link back to your website by placing a linked image on thier own site.

This plugin does not have a Widget at this time but I recommend trying the Shortcode For Sidebar Plugin to use the shortcode for plugin in a text widget.

url – This will be the link added to the html to be copied.
title – This will be the alt tag and title tag applied to the image and link.
image – URL to Image to be used to display sample of badge and included in the provided html

Usage examples:
[badge] (Will display default code based on options page settings
[badge url=’’ title=’’ image=’’]

Default URL, Image and Title settings for the shortcode can be set from the Badge Grab settings page. If the settings page options are populated then all shortcode attributes are optional.

The shortcode can be used multiple times on the same page to make multiple variations of your badge available to your visitors.
