Insert Diagrams into WordPress®

Ever try to share a complicated visual in a compact space like a blog post? You probably had to resize your image so much that it became unreadable. Using SmartDraw's WordPress® widget, you can now embed interactive views of complex diagrams into your WordPress® blog without worrying about resizing. Your audience will be able to zoom, scroll, and even open hyperlinks.

The widget also allows your embedded diagram to be linked to the original, so if you update the original diagram, you don't need to reinsert it. It will be updated automatically.

Once you have the plugin installed, you can also insert a diagram using a shortcode.

How to Install the SmartDraw for WordPress® PlugIn:

  1. Go to Admin > Plugins > Add New, and search for SmartDraw in the plugins directory.
