How to Create Charts in WordPress With a Free Plugin

Trying to create charts in WordPress? 📊

While the built-in WordPress Table block gives you some basic options for creating tables, it’s limited in what it can do, and you can’t visualize that data in any kind of chart or graph.

With the free Visualizer plugin, you can create much more flexible charts and graphs. These charts are interactive, responsive, and colorful, and they will look great on any device. Using just the free version, you can import data from various sources, including:

  • CSV
  • Excel files
  • Google spreadsheets
  • URL

Then, you can create different types of charts and graphs including pie, line, bar, maps, and lots more.

Your visitors can interact with your charts and you get tons of options for controlling their style and display.

The premium version adds even more features such as database import, an in-browser Excel-like editor, and more chart types.

📚 In this step-by-step tutorial, you’ll learn how to create charts in WordPress using the free Visualizer plugin.

How to create charts in WordPress with Visualizer: A step-by-step tutorial

Here’s how to create charts in WordPress with the Visualizer plugin, in six easy-to-follow steps:

  1. Install the free Visualizer plugin
  2. Create a new chart
  3. Choose your chart type
  4. Import/configure your chart data
  5. Configure your chart styles/settings
  6. Embed your chart

1. Install the free Visualizer plugin

The first thing to do is to visit the WordPress repository and download, install and activate the plugin:

Add Visualizer plugin
Download, install and activate Visualizer

If you’re a newbie and need help installing a plugin, you can check out this post.

2. Create a new chart

Next, head to the WordPress menu and click on Visualizer. From here, there are two ways to go about building charts in WordPress. One, click on Add New Chart in the menu:

Charts in WordPress - Add New
Add new chart

OR, open a new page/post, find the Visualizer item in the Gutenberg block editor and click on it:

Create new chart
Create new chart

You then have a choice between Create a new chart and Display an existing one. If you already have charts in the Visualizer library, choose to display existing charts. Since we are creating our first chart, let’s click on Create a new chart.

3. Choose your chart type

In the screen that opens, you can choose the type of chart you want from among 15 chart types:

Charts in WordPress - different chart types
15 chart types in Visualizer

For the purposes of this tutorial, we’ll go with the first option, the Table chart, and then click Next:

Select chart type
Select chart type

4. Import/configure your chart data

This is the screen where all the action happens. To build your chart here, you’ll need to do two things – import data from a source to populate your chart, and then tweak settings to make the chart attractive and match with your website design or brand.

You can import data from file or URL with the free version. Importing data from other charts, WordPress, database or manual addition are all included in Pro options:

Visualizer - Import data from file
Import data from file

The data should be in CSV format.

Now, if you’re not familiar with creating a CSV file, there’s a sample file included that you can simply download and substitute values with your own. Or, if you wish to access data via a URL or a Google spreadsheet, you can do that, too.

Upload CSV File

5. Configure your chart styles/settings

With your data in Visualizer, go on to customize your table by clicking on the Settings tab:

Customizing the chart
Data imported, click Settings

As you can see, there’s a lot you can change here to customize your table to match your website or brand:

Save chart in Visualizer
Settings to customize your chart

Under General Settings you can give a title and description to your chart, save it as an image to your media library, and enable lazy loading.

Move on to Table Settings to make your table responsive, paginate it, freeze the Header and Footer, enable sorting and horizontal scrolling, and set the table height and number of rows per page. 

That’s not all – you can customize the color, text, and background for the rows, columns, and cells. Lastly, you can enable visitors to print or copy the chart to clipboard, or download the chart as a CSV or Excel file by enabling these frontend actions. If you’re a Pro user, you can also restrict access to the charts in WordPress by customizing permissions. 

After you’re done customizing the chart, click Save Chart. This is how my chart appears in the block editor:

Charts in block editior
Chart in block editor

And, this is how it appears in the Preview tab:

6. Embed your chart

With the chart saved in the Visualizer, you can reuse it freely by pasting the shortcode anywhere you want. You can also edit, clone, export or trash the chart: 

Copy chart to clipboard
Visualizer library

Repeat these steps to create additional charts

By following the same steps, you can create a Pie or Donut chart as well (or all of the other chart types). For this purpose, at Step 3, choose Pie Chart (instead of Table) and proceed thereafter in a similar fashion:

Select Pie Chart
Select Pie Chart

The data source CSV file has been modified to show the number of sunny days for only one city, since the Pie chart is visualized in percentages.

Below is a live example of the newly created pie chart. Try hovering over the individual slices of the chart – it reveals details of the percentage of days it represents:

Having created two types of charts, you can now see how easy it is to create different types of charts in WordPress with Visualizer and how you can use it to visualize data and convey a point effectively.

    Recently I came across a site of private sex stories, I’ve never read this before, and it was a very interesting experience!
    It is reading erotic thoughts and ideas of other people, their real or fictional sex stories, that excite several times more,
    forcing the imagination to work and imagine pictures from the essay.
    The site I found –
    It’s worth noting, no ads, dirt and porn pictures, just text and your imagination, it’s really wonderful!
    To be honest, the constant excitement gave color to my life, my partner and I began to have sex more often and set up experiments.

    I recommend the site above and wish you a good reading!

  • AnnaDaync


    Periodically, I study various materials about sex and eroticism, and I began to realize that with the right approach, it pays off.
    Sex and the life of people have always been and will be together, and a proper understanding of psychology and the main points of the relationship with a partner,
    they help to make sex and relationships interesting and productive, and not just as it usually happens with most couples because of the necessity of family life.
    I want to say that one of my favorite sites, regarding articles about eroticism, sex and the life of couples –
    Everything is pretty accurate and to the point, no distracting pictures or vulgar banners, just information and useful articles about sex!
    I will be glad if this resource is useful to you or you can tell me something more worthwhile.

    Good luck!

    I wondered if girls need to read sex stories at night and in general in life, interviewed friends and work colleagues and found out that many people practice it!
    I was prompted by several sites, and I began to spend more time reading private porn stories before going to bed, more often erotic novels by a variety of authors and topics.
    My favorite site has become –
    There is nothing superfluous, just text and My imagination! By the way, my sexuality has greatly increased in a couple of weeks of reading, I even spun 2-3 novels, with a sequel, it was a very interesting experience)
    Now, often sitting in the office, remembering certain stories, there is warmth in My panties, and this is a cool feeling, it helps to quickly pass the day and be in good shape!
    I’m against all sorts of porn movies, and stories are exactly what My imagination creates)

    Have a good reading!

    Recently, my wife and I went to a sex therapist, we had a reduced desire for sex, and this began to affect Our lives (
    After a couple of sessions, he identified the main problem areas and instructed his wife to read 2-3 sex stories a day, written from different people on the web.
    One of the sites was –
    I thought it was all nonsense, but my wife became really more excited by studying this type of literature!
    At first, she just told how reading imagines everything in her imagination, but then she began to demand to satisfy her flesh every night, it was cool!
    In addition, We tried new types of sex and it gave new life to Our relationship.

    I will be glad if this experience helps you, good luck!

    Imagination and fantasy vividly draw the characters of the stories, and I am in an extremely excited and elated state, it really works)

    I used to have a negative view of many things, often worried about the environment, people, politics, and it began to have a bad effect on my health and quality of life in general.
    The psychologist advised me to laugh more, and not to study what I can’t change, what’s the point!
    I began to regularly read jokes and sites with humor, and after 2 months I became a different person, calmer and kinder, things went to the mountains and people want to be in my company more, there is no end of men.
    I advise everyone who likes jokes, this site –
    Everything is simple and about the case, read, laugh and be healthy!
