Requires at least: 2.8

Stable tag: 1.0.10

Easily add WOW Server Status 4.1 badge to your wordpress site by just a few clicks.

== Description ==
This is a simple widget that displays WOW Server Status 4.1 badge, without having to upload the script with ftp and write an img tag to run it.
-- realms with non-english names may also work, but not in 'full' mode as the font used doesn't have those characters

The original script [can be found here](, which is not my work 
1.0.6: patched to use official JSON feed (finally :p), php 5.2+ recommended (for native json_decode() support), fallback JSON.php for earlier versions is included as well.

** If you find your widget broken after a wordpress core update, please try to re-save your widget settings.

If you managed to find bugs or want to correct some of my codes, please don't hesitate to post on forum:)

== Installation ==
1. Unpack and Upload all files to the `/wp-content/plugins/wow-server-status-widget` directory
2. Activate the plugin through the **Plugins** menu in WordPress
3. Drag **WOW Server Status Widget** to your sidebar
4. Enter details and done!

== Frequently Asked Questions ==
The badge script is not my work, I just make it easy to drag and drop in wordpress.
It should be able to run properly on most servers, but if there is a problem
please visit [the author's site]( and look for solutions there.

= It says "No Status Source", what's wrong? =
Make sure you check the realm name and region carefully, it won't work if you've typed it wrong. 
If [official realm status page for US]( or [official realm status page for EU]( is working fine, this badge should be working fine, in some rare cases like when Blizzard is upgrading their server hardware or something, the realm page just breaks and this badge will also break.

= It doesn't reflect the actual realm status correctly, what's wrong? =
See above. Also, update timer of this badge is set to 10 minutes, so it may not reflect immediately if the server status has just changed within 10 minutes.

== Screenshots ==
