Only base=”XXX” is supported, where XXX is the three-letter currency code (GBP, USD, EUR etc.)
This plugin has GBP as the default base currency. If you want a different default base currency or output format, fork the plugin.
The ~ character is included in the output to indicate that it is only an approximate conversion, as the geoplugin.net rates will be different to the rates you might actually use.

- Can I change the base currency or output format?
Yes, amend the plugin code. For such a simple plugin, it’s unlikely I’ll be adding a settings page.
Very useful little plugin, I use it to display hotel prices in the currency of the country where the hotel is in – and in the country where the visitor is at. Great to give my site’s visitors the complete price picture.
Only thing is setting the base currency like this doesn’t work: [currency base=”PHP”]2000[/currency]
I had to change it in the code, easy enough, but I just hope this plugin will keep on being updated when needed so it will keep working.
Anyway, thanks for sharing it with the world, appreciate it.
