The now deprecated charts from Google are being offered as part of the current tools. Shouldn't they they now be removed from the features list? Putting these into a site/solution and finding they vanish in a year or two seems rather odd.

Hi,

I wasn't aware of the charts situation, I will bring this to the attention of our developers. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks,

It would be great to have another chart option thats so easy to implement. I've just started to appreciate the flexibility of Pagelines, Bootstrap, shortcodes and LESS etc and to have a chart option going forward would be the icing on the cake. Great update - pretty much everything you need in one box - brilliant!

They have stated that the charts will work til at least 2015:
 


  • Deprecation Policy
    Google will announce if we intend to discontinue or make backwards incompatible changes to this API or Service. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to continue to operate the Google Chart Tools without these changes until April 20, 2015, unless (as Google determines in its reasonable good faith judgment):

    • required by law or third party relationship (including if there is a change in applicable law or relationship), or
    • doing so could create a security risk or substantial economic or material technical burden.
This Deprecation Policy doesn't apply to versions, features, and functionality labeled as "experimental."


After April 20, 2015, this Deprecation Policy will not apply.
