YAACC: Yet Another AJAX Currency Converter widget for WordPress features a intuitive UI and advanced caching of currency rates.
Upgrade from a previous version (< 1.0):
- Save a copy of your existing yaacc.php and delete everything under the wp-content/plugins/yaacc/ directory.

Open the currencies.php file under ‘yaacc/settings/’ in a text editor and comment the currencies you don’t need (by adding // at the beginning of the line) and uncomment the currencies you need (by removing the ‘//’). Save the file.
