How do I create a new chart?

The steps required to create a new chart are: 1. create the SQL query that retrieves the data in the desired format as a table 2. select the chart type that better fits your data 3. define chart parameters such as: axis precision, labels names, chart name, colors and save it 4. insert the chart in your post/page with the following shortcode:

[wpbusinessintelligence id="11" type="chart" iframe="n" ]Any text (chart name?)[/wpbusinessintelligence]

How does the chart retrieves data?

Data are retrieved at each page refresh with a SQL query on your live DB. So they are always up-to-date!

How do they work?

The charts are powered by D3, a powerful JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. We are trying to wrap as many D3 charts as possible in WP Business intelligence. Have a look here for more info!

How do I extend the default DataTables features?

In order to add more Datatables features you will have to edit the "table.tpl" file located in the /templates/views directory. At the very top of the file you will find the table initialisation call with the default options. You will have to edit this code in compliance with the Datatables API.

Can I pass parameters to the queries?

Yes, you can make queries parametric via WordPress constants
