Simple Org Chart


This plugin allows you to seamlessly setup a hierarchical based organisation chart, otherwise known as an Org Chart, for use in your website. We have integrated drag and drop features to ensure the process is intuitive and fast.

The Chart is able to display a Gravatar image and user’s display name. In the future we are aiming to add a template system which will allow more information to be displayed.

Now chart JSON can be accessed using endpoint.

Endpoint for JSON. {}/wp-json/org_chart/json

JSON format can be updated using “parseJSON” function in index.php . Its a pluggable function.

WP Org Chart Pro is released.

* Responsive
* Buddypress Support
* Multiple Charts

* Custom Departments
* Simple user management

* Replace Top Level user without reset chart

My CSS is not appearing correctly, and the borders are showing around my chart?

You will need to edit the theme’s CSS to ensure it is fully compatible.

El plugin permite visualizar muy bien una organización, sin embargo creo que vale más la pena obtener la versión PRO pues las funcionalidades se multiplican.

This plugin does not work on the latest wordpress version (5.6). No menu is visible on the left side for simple org chart. Only the menu in "settings" is visible, but this one does not contain any functionality. (this review is for the free version of Simple Org Chart)
