  1. Hey, I just downloaded this plugin and I love it, but is it possible to add more than one streamer? I havent found any function to do it yet

  2. I had to enter \.twitch in the setup instead of just .twitch as shown in this video in order to get it to work with the most current version of WordPress. I got an error without it.
