It’s easy to use and produces attractive graphs from simple SQL queries… but it cannot properly display any text on the axis labels that contains “foreign” characters. The name “Röntgen”, for example, will be displayed “R & ouml;ntgen”, with HTML code descriptions of o-umlaut rather than with the actual ö character. This is a serious defect… but there are no other equivalent graphing plugins available, so one must make do!
It’s incredibly easy to use and it produces attractive graphs from simple SQL queries: a lot of other plugins tend to require you to supply data in separate text or CSV files.
I did once have a problem with the graphs not displaying UTF-8 characters properly on the axes of graphs (so things like ‘Röntgen’ would be displayed as “R & ouml;ntgen”, with HTML code descriptions of o-umlaut rather than with the actual ö character. But that got fixed around version 2.2.0.
With that fix in place, there isn’t a tool quite like it anywhere else and it has made my personal website much, much more useful in consequence.
The support I received back in 2019 was a bit iffy -but the support has improved by leaps and bounds since then, and they would now appear to be responsive and helpful, which is great.
Because of the improved support and the fixing of the UTF-8 issue, I’ve increased my rating for the plugin from an acceptable 3-star to a ‘I’m a fan’ 5-star one, as of March 3rd 2022.
