Snippets

Unless otherwise specified, most of these snippets only work with the Pro and Pro Plus versions.

Registered Users

This snippet allows you to show the amount of users that have registered on your site to bid for the auction/s. This works best ONLY if you have enabled the option to allow only registered users to bid.

<?php $users = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT COUNT(ID) FROM $wpdb->users"); ?>
<p>There are <?php echo $users; ?> users bidding on this auction.</p>

<?php $table_name = $wpdb->prefix . "wpa_auctions";

list($number) = mysql_fetch_row($strSQL); ?>
<p>There are <?php echo $number; ?> auctions online.</p>
