There are official and unofficial contests and events. Official trophies appear automatically.
PlanetMinecraft has special page widget for Official Contests but there's no widget for Unofficial ones (I wish it could be)
Still you can create your own widget for unofficial trophies/badges


Create your own Unofficial Trophy Case Widget



You can use one of the "Custom Post" widgets to turn it into "Unofficial Trophy Case" widget.
Just add it to your profile and use a name for example: starsTrophy Case [unofficial]
I like to use a little star to make it look almost like the official Trophy Case widget.

What if you already customized every "Custom Post" widget and have no more?
It's not a problem at all. You can add "Unofficial Trophy Case" as a part of already created widget.
Also you can use some colors in text and make the name prettier: starsTrophy Case [unofficial]
Unfortunately you can't color the name of the widget.


How to create a Trophy with follow link [for Contest Makers]



There is a special code with some arguments to give your participants the ability to place a trophy and to click on it to go on contest's page.
So you created a badge (usually the size is 64x64)
And you need to give it to your participants with follow link to your contest.
You can use this code pattern:
[url=LINKtoCONTEST][img]LINKtoTROPHY.PICTUREFORMAT[/img][/url](Just fill it with your links)

LINKtoCONTEST - you place here the link to your contest's forum thread

LINKtoTROPHY - you place the link to your custom trophy, but first you need to upload it somewhere, I prefer IMGUR

PICTUREFORMAT - just make sure your link is correct and has png/jpeg or whatever format after dot


I have an example trophy for this tutorial:

So we need your uploaded picture's URL
Right-click on your picture and choose "Copy URL"

My picture URL is https://i.imgur.com/3AWN1yz.png
And forum thread link for example is: https://www.planetminecraft.com/forums/pmc/events/community-event-calendar_575043/

After all the link for trophy is:

[url=www.planetminecraft.com/forums/pmc/events/community-event-calendar_575043/][img]https://i.imgur.com/3AWN1yz.png[/img][/url]


How to place Trophies in your widget



Edit your Unofficial Trophy Case and click to BBCode Source button here:


Place the code I wrote above and save widget.

In the end we have the Trophy you can click:



This is it. I hope it was useful for you!

☕ Thank you for being here ☕

Made with love.
😊 Enjoy 😊

Wat? I don't understand a thing, also, how does the special code work, do you just put the link down and...... it goes to your trophy case?

but still the main contest page has links to all the winners so you can check it and see if the information is correct :)
