Description

Insert spreadsheets into WordPress

You can now easily insert accounts and basic spreadsheets directly into your WordPress site - when the user changes them they automatically update without need to be republished in any way.

Charts and graphs in WordPress

Simply drop graphs and charts into your WordPress blog. When the underlying data is edited the graph or chart automatically updates.

Creating and inserting tables in WordPress

Tabular data is very common. You can now easily create and insert tables of data which the end user can sort or filter on your site.

Embeddable forms for WordPress

The Vixo spreadsheet lets you create simple forms that store information in an online spreadsheet and email you when someone submits data - making your life easier.

Calculators and quotation engines for WordPress

Specialist quotation engines and calculators are a cinch with Vixo - they can be built easily in a spreadsheet and then published into your blog.

Installation

  1. Upload vixo-plugin-1.5.zip to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Unzip it
  3. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  4. Use the shortcode [vixo url="http://example.com/some/page/"]

Vixo is a next generation spreadsheet - designed to be used on the internet - everything, graphs, forms, pages of figures, tables of data, has its own URL which you can pop into the Vixo shortcode. You can build sophisticated calculation and quotation engines and embed them as well.

Using The Shortcode

Because everything in Vixo has a URL, The shortcode is very simple and has only two forms:

[vixo url="http://example.com/some/page"]

[vixo url="http://example.com/some/page", width="198px" height="100px"]

If it can the Vixo plugin will work out the size of the thing to be embedded automatically and resize to fit.

For a small number of cases (principally inserting tables) Vixo needs to be told how wide and high you want the embedded object to be. In this case use the long form and specify the width and height in pixels as per the example.
