Net Worth Calculator


The Net Worth Calculator plugin helps you keep track of your monthly assets, liabilities, and net worth.

This plugin is developed by the team at Credit Card Finder

Display Options

Short Code: Data View

To insert a monthly data view into a post:

[networth month=”02-2010″ view=”data”]

By default, the post author’s data view is displayed.

To display another blogger’s data, the ‘user’ parameter can be used:

[networth month=”02-2010″ view=”data” user=”fred”]

Short Core: Graph

To insert the post author’s graph into a post:

[networth month=”02-2010″ view=”graph”]

By default, the post author’s data view is displayed.

To display another blogger’s data, the ‘user’ parameter can be used:

[networth month=”02-2010″ view=”graph” user=”jeremy”]

Width and height can be altered, as well as the number of months to display on the graph.

[networth month=”02-2010″ view=”graph” width=”300″ height=”300″ num_of_months=”6″]


A “Net Worth Calculator Widget” can be included in your widget-aware WordPress theme. This displays the same graph as the Short Code. Options include adjusting the width, height, and background colour of the grpha.
