Easy Charts [easy_chart] Shortcode

The Easy_Charts shortcode is a dynamic tool that embeds a specific chart within your WordPress content. Upon execution, it calls the ‘easy_chart_shortcode_callback’ function, passing chart_id as an attribute. If a valid chart_id is provided, it triggers the Easy_Charts plugin and enqueues necessary scripts for chart rendering. The chart specified by the chart_id is then displayed.

Shortcode: [easy_chart]


Here is a list of all possible easy_chart shortcode parameters and attributes:

  • chart_id – The unique identifier of the chart to be displayed

Examples and Usage

Basic example – Display a chart by specifying the chart ID

[easy_chart chart_id=1 /]

Advanced examples

Creating a chart by specifying multiple chart IDs. This will display multiple charts on your page.

[easy_chart chart_id=1 /]
[easy_chart chart_id=2 /]
[easy_chart chart_id=3 /]

Remember, the shortcode will only work if the chart ID specified exists. If the chart ID does not exist, the shortcode will return an empty string and no chart will be displayed.
