This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



D3.js is a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. D3 helps you bring data to life using HTML, SVG and CSS. D3’s emphasis on web standards gives you the full capabilities of modern browsers without tying yourself to a proprietary framework, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation.

Ths plugin provides the current last version of D3 (v3.3) and a javascript editor to add javascript code into your post or pages and render it.
All extra .css or .js files can be uploaded to your WordPress blog and then included into the post/page easily using built-in functions.


  • Live example here
  • Wp-D3 Chart Manager to edit and save multiple charts code.
  • URL Include dialog to provide the URLs of extra style (.css) and javascript (.js) files used in the D3 snippets.
  • Example displaying D3 chart taking from, in


  1. Upload wp-d3/ to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Create a post in Visual Mode. The last toobar icon is a shortcut to the Wp-D3 Manager Editor.
  4. Paste your code into the editor.
  5. If you have any extra dependencies to .js or .css files upload them to your WordPress
    installation using the WordPress Media Library and then add their URL to the list of includes that
    appears when Wp-D3 Chart Manager’s ‘Include’ button is pressed.
  6. In your D3 code, make sure that the chart is attached to a div with the same name as the current edition tab.
  7. Press ‘Insert’ to add a shortcode into the current post with the chart reference.
  8. Press ‘Save’.
  9. Preview your post and have fun!.


  1. Is it possible to execute javascript code different than D3 one?
    Technically you can use any .js file in your code if you upload it to the WordPress’ Media Library and then copy its URL to the Wp-D3 “Includes” dialog.
    This plugin is designed with D3 in mind so any extra charting libs are not guaranteed to work.
  2. What about including remote javascript files (i.e. hosted in another server)?
    Browsers don’t allow the reference of javascript code hosted in a machine different of the localhost due to security concerns so this is not a limitation of the Wp-D3 plugin itself.

Simply awesome. Thank you so much Ruben for making the plug-in. Can't illustrate how much this has helped us out! As users have pointed out, go to D3 for dummmies and read user "p_ebox" instruction on how to get it up and running. Thanks again.
