Hi Seastar,

You can create the graph on your own spreadsheet software, export the image, save it as a .jpg and add it to your page using the image widget.

You can also add a chart using a Google Gadget (click on the Widgets folder on the right-hand sidebar to get access to the widget) and browse Google Gadget's site by searching for 'chart'. Customise the widget to your liking, copy the code provided and paste it back in the dialogue box on your SynthaSite.

You can also embed a chart in your page by using a Google Docs spreadsheet, it's very easy and effective:
1. Create or upload your spreadsheet to Google Docs and create the chart. Remember to create it in a new worksheet so that the chart is on its own page.
2. Publish the spreadsheet in Google Docs, you should get a toolbar opening on the right-hand side of your page, click on 'Publish' and then 'More publishing options'.
3. A dialogue box will open, change the File Format to 'HTML to embed in webpage', choose the rest of the options you want, (remember to choose the right worksheet) and generate URL.
4. Copy the HTML code provided.
5. Go back to your SynthaSite. Drag and drop an HTML widget onto the page, paste the code into the HTML editor and press "OK".
6. If the size doesn't please you, go back to your HTML widget, click on Edit Settings on the top left corner of the widget, and adjust the width and height settings in the HTML.

I hope that helps!
