Hangman

Description

A cool version of the traditional hangman. Dictionary composed of 14000 English words. Powered by the jQuery library, AJAX and PHP.

Demo

You can play a demo of the Hangman game here

How to use

  1. Install the plugin.
  2. Add the shortcode [hangman] in the page you want to display the Hangman.
  3. (Optional) To change the default words you need to modify the file “dictionary.txt”. Take note that, if there is a plugin upgrade, the changes will be overwritten.

Troubleshooting

I’ve found that, for some reason, jQuery library may not be added on the WordPress website. To include it, add the following code to functions.php:

function theme_scripts() {
  wp_enqueue_script('jquery');
}
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'theme_scripts');

This works well. It would be useful if there was a simple way of importing your own words. Also an option for changing the background image woudld be good or at least give a few different ones to choose from.

This was easy for the user to play. However, I needed more customization. I needed the words to match the theme of my site. The first game I played was for the word: "flatulent" which doesn't work for my audience. But like I said, if you are looking just for ease of use for website visitors, it's easy to install and easy to play. I wish it also had clues to the word.
