Hi there.

I have several plugins I made. But when I tried to share them from my own page I came across a problem.

One of them: https://thingspeak.com/apps/plugins/182625

is 100% public (check the link, you will see the gauge). If I edit the plugin I see the "Make public URL" in the parameters, and it's checked

The other one: https://thingspeak.com/apps/plugins/189102

can't be accessed without my personal login. If I edit it, there's no such a "Make public URL" checkbox to select, so it can't be made public.

What's wrong here? How come there are shareable and not shareable plugins?

Also, I have my own website, is there an easier way (instead of dealing with public/private plugins) to show a google gauge with my Thingspeak data embedded in it? I have full control over this website (it's Joomla)


Thanks everyone!

Hello Eduardo,

For security reasons we have restricted the sharing of plugins' views. We are working on alternative widgets that can be used for the common plugins like gauges and do not have the risk associated with plugins and would appreciate your feedback.

Besides gauges, what kind of plugins are you interested in creating and sharing? Can you share some links and/or screenshots?

As to your own site you can make AJAX calls from your javascript to read the last value of a field on your channel and then display that on whatever widget you can host on your website.
