This would be very rare, but if the scraper seems to fail, check following permissions in folder fifa-world-cup-south-africa-scoreboard/
Verifies that you have curl installed (mandatory).
chmod 757 php/tmp && chmod 646 php/tmp/cookies.txt (mandatory).

Template Tags


Due to the fact that some themes are not widget-ready, or that some blog users don’t like widgets at all, there’s another choice: the nomikos_fifa_world_cup_scoreboard_widget_manual template tag. With it, you can embed the scoreboard on your site’s sidebar without using a widget. This function also accepts parameters (optional) so you can customize the look and feel of the listing.


Without any parameters:

if (function_exists(‘nomikos_fifa_world_cup_scoreboard_widget_manual’))

It will show random groups with date and one row by match.

Using parameters:

if (function_exists(‘nomikos_fifa_world_cup_scoreboard_widget_manual’))

It will show random groups if you do not pass at least one group.
date (0|1): show date of match.
one_row (0|1): reduce the output. useful in small sidebars.
a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h: groups of teams.
