    So, how goes it raviraj? Or maybe coderguy has some more time now?

    I Agree with the above posters - I saw Tally Graph which looked pretty good as well as the rather limited Google Chart Generator. An updated version would help a lot of people I think.

    Hey guys, I found this site, but I don't know how much it helps. It's truly over my head, but I'm going to try it out.

    Thanks ibiss55

    This one basically requires you to create the chart in Google Charts manually first. And then you can get the JS code and put it in the plugin. You could as easily put the JS in a text widget.

    So I don't think the plugin really helps much.

    I'm working on a plug-in with the following features:
    emoticon display
    chart (bar/line/pie)
    custom internal DBs

    Other stuff like CSS and general options
    Callable as a shortcode

    I'll keep y'all apprised.

    Waiting, waiting... :-)

    Would be cool if you can include scatter too in v1...

    I guess that looking ahead, since different chart types take data in different formats, the workflow would be somewhat like...a wizard...select chart type, input data, select colors etc (high level css) for data ranges, select color etc (high level css) for specific data points if needed...generate/verify chart...grab shortcode...

    Hello all,

    Like everyone else we were looking for a good Google Charts / Graphs or any other java script / jquery / HTML5 WordPress (WP) Plugin and came across two Google plugins which if we all leave good feedback to show our appreciation also make requests one of them start to invest more time and centralise more charts / graphs and include shortcodes and etc...

    Google Org Chart

    Plot Over Time (later found out this is for posts however is working example that someone is on the case however different route in this case)

    Hope this helps.

    I would recommend you to try my plugin GChart. This plugin will allow you to create interactive charts and place it at your pages/posts/text widgets. Some screenshots are here. However pay attention that this plugin is not free.

    What's the difference between GChart and Easy Visualization Tools?

    Also, do these plugins allow selection of colors for data series and data points?

    Checked out the "Test before you buy" demo of GChart. Definitely worthy.

    I'm just missing 1 thing - Ability to assign color to a specific data point. Add that, and I'll buy and advocate/recommend to everyone.

    Hi OC2PS,

    Sadly my team hasn't tested these yet however when they do we'll try and update everyone here though the one straightforward highlighted GChart appears to be a good one if you urgently need something.

    If anyone else tests these plugins before we do please update us all accordingly, thank you.

    You can go to the comments tab on the top and ask any question regarding the plugin and they should answer it for you: http://codecanyon.net/item/gchart/discussion/2128926

    I had a quick look. First impressions: V. Good!

    We need the ability to colorify specific data points (not only data series). Hence can't use at the moment.

    But generally, seems like a solid starting point.

    I’m receiving good feedbacks for my ChartBoot plugin (e.g., completeness, usability).
    At the plugin page you have some screenshots and a tutorial video.
    I just released the free 2.0 version yesterday.
    I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Any questions, comments or suggestions are welcome.

    lpagg, this is spectacular! It provides all of the key features I need.

    I'd love to have a way for the labels to be links, so I could link to more detailed data. Can I somehow embed those or can it even be done?

    Other things I see that I'd like is a way to center the title and label the y axis.

    "ChartName" doesn't seem to display on my WP page. Is that intentional?

    Hi tangobango, thanks for your comments.

    The feature to keep active the labels to enable drilling down is not included at now by the native Google Chart editor, when they will make it avaliable I will update my plugin.
    At the moment, if you go to http://www.chartboot.com yuo can obtain the code of your chart and complement it manually with the custom code you can write reading the Google Charts tools documentation (i.e., here you have the events available for the pie charts https://developers.google.com/chart/interactive/docs/gallery/piechart#Events

    Center the title is not possible at now.
    You can label the y axis by selecting the verticalaxis (under Customize->Axis) and by setting a title.

    Use Chart Title instead of ChartName (it's not transferred to the chart).

    Hello Ipagg,

    I tested your plugin and it is very nice (I am currently using the "old" chart API, so I would like to transform all my graph to the new API).
    I used the "old" API to have dynamic data in the graphs : I am sending queries to my wordpress database (I'm using Participant database) to be able to display percentage of men/women, etc.. which are real data and not a number entered as data.
    Before digging in your plugin code, I would like to know if you expect to do such development on your plugin or not ?

    Hi Sev,
    Extending Charboot for WordPress to manage dynamic data from WP DB is for sure and interesting enhancement path for the plugin. In the next days I will enter more into the details of the technical implications of interfacing the Google Chart API with the WP DB.
    In the meanwhile any suggestions or comments are welcome.
    Rgds, lpagg.

    Only suggestion/comment I have is my current way of working with "old" google chart :

    function graph_women( $atts, $content = null ) {
       global $wpdb;
       $mens = $wpdb->get_var($wpdb->prepare( "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM wp_participants_database WHERE sexe = 'Man';" ));
       $womens = $wpdb->get_var($wpdb->prepare( "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM wp_participants_database WHERE sexe = 'Woman';" ));
       $per_mens = number_format(100 * $mens / ($mens + $womens),0);
       $per_womens = number_format(100 - $per_mens,0);
       /* http://code.google.com/intl/fr-FR/apis/chart/image/ */
       $data = '&chd=t:'.$per_mens.','.$per_womens.'';
       $colors = '&chco=6633FF,FF00FF'; /* if something, use &chco= */
       $size = '&chs=500x200';
       $bg = '&chf=ffffff';
       $title = 'Repartion Mens / Womens';
       $labels = '&chl=Mens '.$per_mens.'%|Womens '.$per_womens.'%';
       $advanced = '&chm=N*p0*,000000,0,-1,11'; /* don't work on pie */
       $charttype = 'lc';  /* line
       $charttype = 'lxy'; /* xyline
       $charttype = 'ls';  /* sparkline
       $charttype = 'gom'; /* meter
       $charttype = 's';   /* scatter
       $charttype = 'v';   /* venn
       $charttype = 'p';   /* pie2d */
       $charttype = 'p3';  /* pie */
       return '<img title="'.$title.'" src="http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?chtt='.$title.'&cht='.$charttype.''.$data.''.$colors.''.$size.''.$bg.''.$labels.''.$advanced.''.$title.'" alt="'.$title.'" />';

    The concept is simple : use wpdb to set variables values then use the Google API.
    But with your plugin, you write directly in the post the value of the variables, so that's not so easy. Unless you know a method to send variables to a shortcode (that I don't know).
