Wp Custom Field Chart


This plugin collect data attached to post/article via custom field and make
chart of it.
This plugin use Chart.js for chart drawing ChartJs

Data are collected by looking for specific custom field attached to your
post/page. You can change aggregation method, intervall…

See usage


Edit your post/page in text mode and put some Javascript and a WordPress tag


var mydata = { datasets: [{}]};
[custom_field_chart fields="humidity" js_data="mydata"]

For each field you need to put empty {} into datasets.

For two fields:

var mydata = {datasets: [{},{}]}
[custom_field_chart fields="humidity,temperature" js_data="mydata"]

But it’s pretty useless to put more than one field without different colors 🙂


var mydata = {
    datasets: [
            label: "Humidity",
            fillColor: "rgba(255,73,0,1)",
            strokeColor: "rgba(255,73,0,1)",
            pointColor: "rgba(255,73,0,1)",
            pointStrokeColor: "#fff",
            pointHighlightFill: "#fff",
            pointHighlightStroke: "rgba(220,220,220,1)",
            label: "Temperature",
            fillColor: "rgba(255,73,0,1)",
            strokeColor: "rgba(255,73,0,1)",
            pointColor: "rgba(255,73,0,1)",
            pointStrokeColor: "#fff",
            pointHighlightFill: "#fff",
            pointHighlightStroke: "rgba(220,220,220,1)",

var myopts = {
    pointDotRadius: 1,
    bezierCurveTension: 0.2,
    barStrokeWidth : 2,
    barValueSpacing : 2,
    barDatasetSpacing : 0,

// Optional...
jQuery(window).load(function() { = true; = "easeOutBounce"; = function(){
// End optional
