Display SQL Stats


! ! ! S T I L L B E T A ! ! !

Displaying SQL result data as graphical chart on your blog (shortcodes) or your dashboard with use of Google Chart Tools.

Remove plugin

  1. Deactivate plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  2. Delete plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

It’s best to use the build in delete function of wordpress. That way all the stored data will be removed and no orphaned data will stay.

  • Showing chart in dashboard
  • Settings

Installation Instructions
  1. Upload plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ folder
  2. Activate the plugin
  3. Edit/Insert SQL Stament in Settings
  4. Watch in dashboard
variable #user_login#

Use SQL statements with #user_login# to be replaced by user login on the fly
Eg. SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE user_login=’#user_login#;’
Will only give one line whith the result of the current user login, where
SELECT * FROM wp_users;
will give you all lines

What about the shortcode?

[dsscode no=x title=”My Title” width=”100%” height=”400″ pagesize=”50″]
x is the number of your SQL statement
title is the title
width, use percent values oder just figures which will be treated as picxel, leave empty for full width of 100%
height=”400″, same as above
pagesize=”50″: The number of rows in each page (only with charttype table)

Can I access other databases than wordpress database?

Yes, but you have the grant your user access (better only select rights) to the database. Than you can use “SELECT * FROM database.table;” as you are used to. Be careful this might cause security risks.

Where can I find more information on Google Charts?

Interestingly, the plugin does not requires me to specify x and y axes, but somehow it figures out. I guess user would have to put the x axis values in the first column and y axis values in the following columns. I’ve tried several charts-making plugins. I would have to say this is exactly the one I needed. There are some other charts-making plugins are quite popular, but you can barely do anything with their free versions.
