- To customize the feed from Twitch TV, fill either the ‘Game’ field or the ‘Channel’ field or the ‘Team’ field. Only fill one of these fields, or the feed will not work.
- To add the widget to your site, you can use the shortcode [getTwitchRail] within any page or post. Advanced WordPress users could also add the function call directly to their theme to use the widget outside of a page or post (more on this below)
Simply use the following shortcode anywhere in a post or page within WordPress:
For those of you who know your way around a WordPress theme, it’s possible to embed the Twitch TV Rail widget directly within your theme using the wordpress function do_shortcode. This will allow you to put the widget anywhere in your theme, even outside of a post or a page.
To do so, use the following PHP code anywhere in your theme.
<?php echo do_shortcode('[getTwitchRail]') ?>
