Artiss Currency Converter

This plugin will convert currencies within the text of a post or page.

If you are upgrading from a version previous to 1.1 then you will need to sign up an App ID before currency conversions will work again - please see "Other Notes" for further information

If you have a wish to convert currencies "on the fly" within the text of a post or page then this plugin will offer this functionality!

For example, I run a UK based site and will refer to currencies in GBP. However, the majority of visitors are from the US, so I may have a wish to also show the dollar equivalent. Using this plugin I can do this without having to work out the conversion and then re-visit it in future to take into account conversion changes.

Features include...

  • No need to update exchange rates yourself - data is fetched from an Open Source API
  • 159 currencies supported
  • An easy to use shortcode for embedding directly into your posts and pages
  • A PHP function for those people who wish to add features in their theme
  • Results can be cached, reducing resources and improving response
  • Template to allow you to control how results are output
  • Administration screen allowing you to define defaults and to view current exchange rates
  • Fully internationalized ready for translations. If you would like to add a translation to this plugin then please contact me

To add to your site simply use the [convert] shortcode. For example...

[convert number=49.99 from="gbp" to="usd"]

This would convert 49.99 GBP to USD.

The above should get you started - for more information and advanced options please read the "Other Notes" tab.
