Using content tags
As of version 1.0.0, you can now use simple tag to include simple graph(s) in your posts and pages. However, this required WP2.2 or newer. If you’re using earlier versions of Simple Graph or WordPress, scroll down the page for instructions on how to do this manually.
If you want to insert a graph in posts and/or pages, simply write a string similar to following in your post or page.
Just replace the values as you wish. The ones above are default values, and if you don’t need to change the default value, you can simply omit that value from the string. I.e. alone produces the graph with default values drawn from widget setup.
* n is number of widget options, from where default options (such as colours) are drawn
* x is width, any positive value is acceptable
* y is height, any positive value is acceptable
* trend is whether trend graph is shown, 0 = no, 1 = yes
* wkly is whether weekly averages are shown, 0 = no, 1 = yes
* lm is whether only values from last month are shown, 0 = no, 1 = yes
* ytd is whether only values from last year are shown, 0 = no, 1 = yes
* uid is user ID of the graph owner (see WordPress dashboard -> Users)
* gid is user-specific graph number, same as in widget control panel’s graph# selection
The manual (old) approach
Step 1. Copy page.php to graph.php
Navigate to your theme folder and find a file called page.php. This is a template which specifies how your static pages are displayed. Copy the file to other name, for example graph.php.
Step 2. Edit your graph.php file
In your newly created graph.php file, find the position where the page entry begins. Usually it looks like this:
Replace the contents of that div elements with something similar to the example below. This is the source code excerpt from my own weight watch page.
Pages: ‘, ‘
‘, ‘number’); ?>
Also, don’t forget to change the template name at the beginning of the page template file, for example to “Graph Template”.
Step 3. Create a new static page
In your WordPress dashboard, go to “Write Page.” On the right-hand options column, select “Graph Template” as the Page Template. If you wish, you may enter page content, which will appear below the graph(s). And you’re done!
