How to make an infographic using the Infographic Shortcodes WordPress Plugin
You can use the Infographic Shortcodes WordPress plugins in 2 ways:
1. Using the Infographic wizard button . This button appears in the rich text editor menu when you create/edit a post or page. This button is also context aware, so you will be able to edit charts that you created earlier.
2. By keying in the shortcodes corresponding to the graph / chart that you want to display. Each shortcode has a series of parameters. The available shortcodes are:
Interactive infographic examples
Example bar chart made using the infographic WordPress plugin. Here is the source code:
[infographic-bargraph bar_type='normal' width='450' height='250' colors='#044d6f,#3c83ba,#19a4db'] [ig-bargroup name='Infographic Example Dataset 1' ] [ig-bar label='Subset 1' value='100'] [ig-bar label='Subset 2' value='200'] [ig-bar label='Subset 3' value='120'] [/ig-bargroup] [ig-bargroup name='Infographic Example Dataset 1' ] [ig-bar label='Subset 1' value='50'] [ig-bar label='Subset 2' value='75'] [ig-bar label='Subset 3' value='88'] [/ig-bargroup] [/infographic-bargraph]
