Thermometer goals chart – FREE

We are proud to announce our new image based thermometer charts. Simply reference the inage on the thinksynergy server along with some variables and the customised chart will appear on your site.

In order to use these charts simply add the image to your HTML page in the usual format:

<img src=”http://www.thinksynergy.co.uk/scripts/thermometer.jpg?currency=£&template=4&max=1850&current=1525&text=Title” />

Note: If you cut/paste the above, please make sure the “” are pasted correctly, and dont end up curly quotes!

As you can see, there are some variables on the end of the image. These are as follows:

template = Choose 1 to 5 for different themes. We will be adding new themes and a gallery soon

max = This is the maximum (target) value of the chart

current = The current value on the chart

text = The title of the chart

currency = Enter the currency symbol you wish to use e.g.$

That’s it for now. Enjoy using this chart and please add a comment if you decide to use the chart of have any ideas for how it could be improved.

License: These charts may be used freely on any non-profit website. All I ask is you give me some feedback and a link to this site.

    I was able to copy and paste without any problem.
    But I am trying to eliminate the data inside the chart
    to read something else and their is not letting me do that. Can you plese instruct me as to how to change
    this data.

    Thank you very much for all of your assistance.

    Hi Barbee,

    What data is it you are looking to change? The title of the chart is customisable, as is the maximum number and the current amount saved. Is it the “so far..” section you wish to change? If so, that shouldn’t be too hard to implement, but at present it is part of the background template.

    Let me know what it is you are trying to achieve and I will do my best to help.

    Jim

    Hi Jim,

    Thank you for the easy-to-use tool. I’m going to use it on our theatre website to track the progress of a fundraising campaign. Is it possible to make the template a little wider so we can display six figures? I’m going to use template #2. Currently the template width allows for display of up to four figures plus the currency sign before rolling off the right edge.

    Thanks again,
    Bill

      It’s great to see the script in action. I sent you a link to a slightly wider version, if anyone else needs it just replace thermometer.jog with thermometerw.jpg and use template 6.

      Cheers,

      Jim
