I updated to ios 11 and now whenever I plug in my charger it says This accessory may not be supported. I have tried several things, but none worked. If you have any solution to this please leave it below. Thank you.

Are you using a third party cable or the original apple cable? Also, what are you using to plug it in (Computer, charging block, power bank)?

It is not a chord from Apple, and it is plugged into a port extension thing.

If you have a charging block (Preferably one made by Apple) try that.

When you get the "accessory not supported" issue, it's normally down to accessories that aren't certified by Apple, chances are that's the issue you're getting. I know they tried cracking down on non-certified chargers in previous updates so I'm not sure if they've tried doing it in this one.

Best bet is to try an official charger (or apple-certified), any cable that's over about 5 pounds/dollars because that's the rough price it costs for a company to have certification on their cables.

The weird thing I noticed like yesterday was that it still charges even though the lightning bolt icon doesnt show up. Not too big of a deal anymore, thanks.

It could be the port where you plug it in
Damage of the charger or if its dirty

That message means, it cant read the charger

Maybe take into store, but if its what the user above was saying get a pin and clear out your charger port you will probably find that you have a lot of dust trapped causing this problem. I had to do this before
