RJ Quickcharts


Build Complex, Powerful HTML5 Charts in Just Minutes.

RJ Quick Charts is the only WordPress plugin available that allows users to easily enter data that is immediately built out into a chart below as they type. Quick Charts uses all native WordPress UI so it feels right at home without adding any excessive bloat to your site.

Build and publish your chart in minutes by:

  1. Selecting a chart type (Line Chart, Bar Chart or Pie Chart)
  2. Choosing a few options
  3. Add your data!

The chart will be dynamically built out and updated as you type. Once you’re done, just save it and add it to any Post, Page or Custom Post Type by going to Add Media -> Insert Quick Chart.


  • Create bar, pie and line charts with simple Intuitive UI
  • Charts are HTML, CSS and JavaScript so they will work on any modern mobile device

I like this features: 1. Charts will resize dynamically with responsive themes 2. Enter your data directly into the Excel-like table 3. And another thing that is not written in the plugin home page: you can hide data series by clicking on the legend! Awesome.

This plug-in does not offer all the bells and whistles other chart plug-ins do (especially when it comes to the selection of chart types), but its easy to understand and creates nice results. The realtime preview in the backend while entering data in a table is especially helpful. Best plug-in for beginners, but covers a lot of use cases.
