WordPress Charts

Create amazing HTML5 charts easily in WordPress. A flexible and lightweight WordPress chart plugin including 6 customizable chart types.

Are Shortcodes Really User Friendly?

Short Answer : NO. But an easy to use admin interface for WP Charts will eventually be realised. Along with many features to help you quickly produce amazing charts. In the mean time copy and paste the demo shortcodes and edit them carefully, while they can seem a little difficult they're actually still pretty simple to understand and use. Its best to paste the shortcode into the html/text editor rather than the visual editor.

How do you use the new scale properties?

Its quite easy actually, have a look at the example shortcode below :

[wp_charts title="linechart" type="line" align="alignright" margin="5px 20px" datasets="40,43,61,50 next 33,15,40,22" labels="one,two,three,four" scaleoverride="true" scalesteps="5" scalestepwidth="10" scalestartvalue="0"]

canvas Height ? width ? canvas width ? responsive charts ? whats going on ?

The canvas height and width properties set the actual canvas drawing area (for example if you're displaying a huge chart set these values higher to avoid aliasing / poor rendering), the height and width properties set the chart container height and width, and I use CSS and JS to set the canvas to 100%, measure the width and set the height to an equal value. This makes it possible to have these charts responsive. Note that in order to create non symmetrical charts you will need to set all of these properties as well as the relativewidth property in the shortcode, there is an example at the end of the installation section.

Are you still going to eat that ?

Not since you poked it with your fat sticky finger, but I will eat this here elephant one bite at a time.
