Lets you embed graphs and graphs, tables, spreadsheets, forms and quotation engines from the Vixo online spreadsheet.
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.
- Unzip it
- Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
- Use the shortcode
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", 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.

Fixes in documentation and plugin embedding.
Two major bug fixes:
- use of unsafe jQuery expressions in previous version means that sites using native WordPress jQuery would fail to load spreadsheet elements
- failure to load native WordPress jQuery means themes that don't use jQuery would fail to load spreadsheet elements
Had 3 lines after '?>' leading to a 'The plugin generated 3 characters of unexected output during activation' error.
Turned off debugging by default
