    How do I insert a chart into my post/page?

    Currently this plugin has no graphical assist, so you have to manually type the shortcode directly within your text as such:


    You should avoid using the WYSIWYG "Visual" post editor when entering shortcodes. Instead, use the "HTML" tab.

    This will create a default demo chart. You will specify a variety of parameters to create your own.

    Can I change chart types without changing the data?

    Yes. The chart types are independent of the data content, so you can preview how your data may look like as a horizontal or vertical bar chart, or as a pie chart.

    I get the following message in my posts: "EASY CHART BUILDER SHORTCODE ERROR"

    Your shortcode has an illegal parameter, or perhaps a new line. Make sure the shortcode is in one single line. It can wrap of course, but sometimes editors place implicit breaks... these become HTML codes under the covers and confuses the shortcode parser.

    This message was created to help identify when these situations were occuring. If your problems continue, please contact us.

    How can I support your plugin?

    Right now there are three support options that would be much appreciated

    1) Purchase our RSS news reader for the iphone: Flitter! app store link

    2) Advertise our Flitter! iPhone app on your site. You can use the graphics right off of this site's main page or contact us if you want something custom.

    3) Donate via PayPal. The sidebar on your right over there has a paypal donation button.

    This list is in no particular order, whatever you choose would be wonderful to us!

    I still get the "EASY CHART BUILDER SHORTCODE ERROR" and I know I have entered everything correctly!

    It is rare, but you also may have a plugin that replaces key phrases in your blog with HTML markup codes (such as a dictionary or ad plugin). The plugin in question MAY be performing this prior to wordpress shortcode parsing. If this is the case you can replace a single letter of the phrase you want in the shortcode with a percent character followed by the HEX ASCII code from this table:


    This will prevent the plugin from matching its keywords, and allow our shortcode to show the correct text.

    If your problems continue, please contact us. Could be a bug in our stuff you know!

    How do I put a chart in my sidebar (or widget)?

    Add a generic "text" widget to your site and edit it. Inside the text, use the shortcode as you normally would. Note this requires ecb >= v0.7.
