The Free Version
The Plotalot Component really is free. You can download it further down this page. It includes the full back end chart editor, and the front end of the component can display any number of charts on your site. The only restriction in the free version is that the X axis title for bar charts and line graphs is always "Plotalot Free".
The Paid Version
The paid version of Plotalot includes the Plotalot Plugin, which allows you to place charts anywhere in any article (with your choice of X axis title, of course). The plugin also provides optional caching of chart data, and enables fully responsive charts that resize dynamically, for example when a tablet or mobile device is rotated. The paid version of the component also allows your choice of X axis title.
The Plotalot APIIf you are a PHP programmer and want to include Plotalot charts in your own Joomla extensions, then the Plotalot API is for you. Using the API you can build your SQL queries and chart options dynamically, using data gathered from the database and from the user. You can download the Plotalot developers guide for free, but if you need some sample code, the SimplePlot component is available with the paid version. You can see SimplePlot at work here
Three Different Options
We offer a choice of three payment options for the paid version. The difference is the length of time you get upgrades for, and the level of support. All our products are open source so there are no restrictions on their usage. You can read more about that at Downloads and Licensing. You can check out the Plotalot version history to see the kinds of features that tend to get added over time.
Upgrades for 30 days
You can download the software and any updates published in the next 30 days.
Most people buy this option when they are happy with the Component and just need the plugin. Please note that we will not provide support with this option. We will fix bugs but you must provide a detailed analysis of the problem.

One support incident is included which you can use to get advice, or help if you hit a problem. This does not include custom modification of the code, or help with SQL, but we will do our best to help with any other kind of problem.
