This is just what i was looking for. Easy to make graphs and even graphs looking cool. Many thanks for this great plugin.
This software is not only an excellent plugin for fast and easy charts and graphs embedded in your Joomla! articles. But the author also made available the code to custom create graphs and charts in PHP. It is all Object Oriented and well written. I cannot recommend this plugin enough. Extremely easy to use and it's also an extremely powerful front end to Open Flash Chart.

An awesome pluggin!

A very usefull extension for Joomla! webmasters that have lot of application datas to manage. I display graph to control my breeding production since 1990.

Thank a lot to share your job.
This is a perfect plugin to insert charts everywhere. Easy, good documentation and visually better than others.

Only have missed for some types of charts as "scatter". Hope someday can increase the types of charts as for a plugin is perfect!.
Owner's reply: hi,

many thanks for your review! You may now with version 1.2.1 create scatter charts. You may also use my implementation of regression calculations for scatter charts.

bravo brother joachim

never found like this. great plugin. Just trying 1.2.0 for joomla 1.5 : AMAZING.

Its suggest for you : I wish can to display mysql data tables in frontend joomla at any content (eg. article); table can contain images, URLs, e-mail address, text, integer, date and time.

Can load data from Joomla! database or from external database. Many different database types is supported. Can load data from CSV files. Highly customizable and Works in all modern browsers and off course creates charts based on data from table. You can make a little donation for that.

Keep creating...

Brilliant and beautiful. If you need a dynamic chart for anything, I mean anything and can write a little php and mysql this is the answer. Though the plugin does most of the mysql on its own.

If your data is static. The flashCharts plugin is simple to install, configure and well documented. Copy an example, add your data and you will have a beautiful chart or graph in less time than it took me to write this review.

I spent four hours writing a little php application for a graph and ported it into joomla with jumi. I installed and configured the php option of this plugin in 4 minutes. Wish I would have seen it first! Every J developer should check this Plugin's documentation -- clear examples, known conflicts, work-arounds, all in one page! Bravo!

Hi All, I've been using this plugin for a long time now and I am very happy with it.

It's easy to combine multiple charts in one article, it's beautiful and one of the best features is the ability to have conditional formatting!

The only thing I would change/ adapt is the ability to ALWAYS display the labels values, and not only as tool tip.

Thank you for this plugin and for your effort!

VERY Powerful and Free

It is one of the best extensions for joomla! But it can be better with adding some feature for comparison between 2 or more things..

anyway, It receive my 5 star..
I have been using the flashChart Content Plugin on my site for awhile now, and our viewers really like it. Installation is easy. Setting up the display takes a little time to learn, but it is well worth it. The support is fantastic. The developer returns emails, fixes problems and makes necessary updates very quickly and efficiently. I wish I could use this support for all of my problems with Joomla plugins.
