Hey there! How are you?
Welcome to Tortoise IT

I am a freelance WordPress plugin and theme developer based in Crewe, Cheshire, UK. I’ve been at this for nearly 15 years now and you could say I know a thing or two about PHP and WordPress. I have extensive experience using the Divi Theme and write/sell my plugins on Elegant Marketplace. I’m also involved with a number of other projects and schemes ongoing.  This site is a blog primarily where people who want to know more can find out more about what I’m doing/releasing and get a taste for the sorts of things I’m capable of.

If you’re new to this site then a very big WELCOME to you and do have a look around. If you’ve got any questions or comments please use my contact form, hire me form, Facebook Group or if you’re into that human interaction thing then just pick up the phone and drop me a line!

I came across Google Charts the other day and wanted to let people know what it’s all about. I found it incredibly easy to use to make a simple chart but a little more complicated to make something more complex. The hello world example is given as follows: http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=p3&chd=t:60,40&chs=250×100&chl=Hello|World (should be used within an <img…
