Shading Time Series plots

Very new to plotly (day 1). I have a time series plot in ggplot2 where there is shading for periods of recession. A background appears pink when there is a recession and unshaded when there isn’t one.

Here’s an example of coding it in ggplot.

For what it’s worth, I tried the ggplotly function to create the plotly chart, but the shading was lost. I am using R. Can this sort of shading be added to a time series? Thanks.

@rmacey, it is possible to add that sort of shading using shapes. Here is an example You will have to modify that example slightly if you want the shaded regions to extend the entire height of the plot. You can do that by setting yref='paper' and then y0=0, y1=1.
