Yahoo Currency


With the yahoo currency plugin you can display and embed Yahoo Currency Feeds in your WordPress posts and pages using the following shortcode:

[ycurrency base="Currency Code" currencies="Currency Code,Currency Code,Currency Code etc"]


  • Simple:

Just put a [ycurrency base="Currency Code" xcur="Currency Code,Currency Code,Currency Code etc"] in your post, and the rates will show up.


For some customisation there are some options you can use.

  • base : The Base Currency in international format (USD)
  • xcur : The other currencies you want to display the rate compared to the base currency seperated by a comma (GBP,EUR)


[ycurrency base="USD" xcur="GBP,EUR,ZAR"] (display the buy and sell rate of the US Dollar against the British Pound,Euro,South African Rand)

Finally note the whole thing must be on ONE line. No line breaks or else it won’t work.
