QuoteMedia Tools

Description

QuoteMedia Tools provides short codes to integrate real-time stock quotes and charts into WordPress posts.

Stock Quotes

[stockquote symbol="MSFT"]

Generates a real-time stock quote formatted like so (MSFT 23.10 +6.7%).

Stock Charts

[stockchart symbol="MSFT"]

Generates a 3-month price chart for the ticker symbol “MSFT”.

The stock chart short code can also contain additional parameters to help customize the chart:

  • float to designate the CSS float parameter on the chart. For example, [stockchart symbol="MSFT" float="right"] will float the chart right. Default: “left”.
  • padding to designate the CSS padding on the chart. For example, [stockchart symbol="MSFT" padding="10px 0 0 0"] will add 10px to the top. Default: “0 10px 10px 10px”.
  • scale to designate the timeframe that the chart shows. For example, [stockchart symbol="MSFT" scale="1y"] will show a one-year chart. Default: “3m”.
  • width to designate the chart’s width. For example, [stockchart symbol="MSFT" width="500"] will show a chart with a 500px width. Default: “250”.
  • height to designate the chart’s height. For example, [stockchart symbol="MSFT" height="100"] will show a chart with a 100px height. Default: “150”.
