Scatterpolar missing?

Is it just me or is the scatterpolar plot not working in R?

I’m trying to run the first example from the polar charts page ( and getting the following error:

> library(plotly)
> packageVersion('plotly')
[1] ‘4.7.1’
> p <- plot_ly(
+     type = 'scatterpolar',
+     r = c(0,1,2,2),
+     theta = c(0,1.5,2.5,0),
+     mode = 'markers'
+ )
> p
Error: Trace type must be one of the following: 
'scatter', 'box', 'bar', 'heatmap', 'histogram', 'histogram2d', 'histogram2dcontour', 'pie', 'contour', 'scatterternary', 'sankey', 'scatter3d', 'surface', 'mesh3d', 'scattergeo', 'choropleth', 'scattergl', 'pointcloud', 'heatmapgl', 'parcoords', 'scattermapbox', 'carpet', 'scattercarpet', 'contourcarpet', 'ohlc', 'candlestick', 'area'

You probably just need to upgrade to the latest version.

Isn’t 4.7.1 the latest version?

I am having the same issue and I am on version 4.7.1 of plotly - any advice?

probably best to post on
