Using googleVis output with WordPress

WordPress is a popular web software for creating websites and blogs. Here we give some tips about the usage with googleVis output.

By default WordPress does not allow JavaScript code (and hence googleVis output) to be inserted into a page. However, additional plugins allow us to extend the functions of WordPress.

One option of embedding JavaScript code inside a WordPress post is to use the "custom fields shortcode" plugin. This plugin allows you to create a custom field for the googleVis code, which can be referred to in your article.

Suppose you created a motion chart in R:

M <- gvisMotionChart(Fruits, "Fruit", "Year",
		     options=list(width=400, height=370))

Copy the chart code, e.g. from

print(M, 'chart')

and paste it into the value text area of a custom field in WordPress, e.g. with instance name Fruits. To include the motion chart into your article add [cf]Fruits[/cf] into the post, see the figure below for an illustration. For more details see also the vignette.

It is very difficult to help you, when you don't provide any details. We can't judge, if your problem is related to googleVis, WordPress? or the plug-in. Please provide more information via email.
