How To Add a New WX Stick

Open the file wx-sticks.php. This is located in the inc folder. This file contains a variable, $sticks. The $sticks variable is an array containing each sponsor information for each wx_stick.

$sticks = array(
			'id' => 1,
			'location' => 'Cumberland',
			'xml_file' => 'WPRI_Cumberland Kitchen & Bath.xml',
			'sponsor' => 'Cumberland Kitchen & Bath',
			'sponsor_url' => '',
			'address' => '1764 Mendon Road, Cumberland, RI',
			'id' => 2,
			'location' => 'Smithfield',
			'xml_file' => 'WPRI_Ephraim Doumato Jewelers.xml',
			'sponsor' => 'Ephraim Doumato Jewelers',
			'sponsor_url' => '',
			'address' => '425 Putnam Pike, Smithfield, RI',
			'id' => 3,
			'location' => 'Newport',
			'xml_file' => 'WPRI_Newport.xml',
			'sponsor' => 'Viking Hotel',
			'sponsor_url' => '',
			'address' => '1 Bellevue Ave, Newport, RI',
			'id' => 4,
			'location' => 'Tiverton',
			'xml_file' => 'WPRI_Phil\'s Propane.xml',
			'sponsor' => 'Phil’s Propane',
			'sponsor_url' => '',
			'address' => '77 Crandall Road, Tiverton, RI',
			'id' => 5,
			'location' => 'North Kingstown',
			'xml_file' => 'WPRI_Scalabrini Villa.xml',
			'sponsor' => 'Scalabrini Villa',
			'sponsor_url' => '',
			'address' => '860 North Quidnessett Road, North Kingstown, RI',
			'id' => 6,
			'location' => 'Narragansett',
			'xml_file' => 'WPRI_The Village Inn.xml',
			'sponsor' => 'Aqua Blue Hotel & Conference Center',
			'sponsor_url' => '',
			'address' => '1 Beach Street Narragansett, RI',
			'id' => 7,
			'location' => 'Warwick',
			'xml_file' => 'WPRI_Top of the Bay.xml',
			'sponsor' => 'Top of the Bay Restaurant',
			'sponsor_url' => '',
			'address' => '898 Oakland Beach Ave, Warwick, RI',

Copy the last array(...) and add it to the end of the $sticks array. Make sure to add a , before the array you just pasted. Edit the text after the => (these are the values, the text before the => are the keys). The id needs to be a number, so don't put it in quotes. Make sure to add an image for the sponsor logo named [id number].jpg.

How To Edit A WX Stick

Find the array that contains the name of the xml file for the wx stick you want to edit. Edit the values.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
