The Plotalot component really is free. 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".
When you buy the paid version, you will be able to download any of the files listed below, including the Plotalot Plugin and the paid version of the component that allows your choice of X axis title. You can also download SimplePlot and the Plotalot Developer Guide, if you want them. Most people don't need these, but there's more information about them 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, and you can check out the 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.
Upgrades for 2 years
1 support incident
You can download the software and all updates published in the next 2 years.
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.
Upgrades for 3 years
5 support incidents
You can download the software and all updates published in the next 3 years.
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. Officially we limit this to five support incidents, but the idea is that with this option, we are here to help you.
