Are the current Pagelines chart tools using the new Charts from Google or the deprecated version?

Hi there,

 

I would imagine Martin's waiting to hear from the developer team for a definitive answer. I've checked the changelog for you and I can't see any changes to googlemaps since 2.4, so I would imagine at this stage we're using the deprecated version.

That chart shortcode uses the old OLD google api to draw charts as images, it was written a long time ago. There are plugins out there to make graphs using the new api.

Here is the first i found:

Thanks for the quick response

Doesn't seem to be a link in your post?

 

Would it be possible for a request to be sent to Pagelines developers to use the new code - it doest seem right to offer a product feature using code that is in the process of being removed.

Glad Simon was able to help you.  I'm sure he'd say you're very welcome.

I think we are done - thanks to all. Just wanted to know if the new charts are going to be integrated into PL? - and/or, if a request has been passed to the developers?

Simon is a developer, so yes.  No idea how or if or when it will go.

 

You're welcome. Cheers.
