  • Hi godavid33,

    Initial release does not cache quotes from Yahoo Finance and on every load leave to visitor’s browser to retrieve quotes (AJAX), and then parse results to ticker. It’s probably client timeout issue (any suggestion is welcome).

    Can you provide site URL where you experiencing issue?

    Here is the URL: http://themreport.com/ticka-testa/

    I haven’t looked at your code so I can’t figure out exactly what is going on but I can surmise a guess that every iteration you are making a new API call. The problem happens when the following script is trying to be called:

    Ticka Testa

    and it 500’s. I would suggest just making one API call per page load and storing the variables then re-using them.

    Can you please try with this development version http://urosevic.net/wordpress/?wpdmact=process&did=MTEuaG90bGluaw== (removed ajax setup, and moved calls to footer).

    Btw, I don’t use API call for Yahoo Finance, but doing javascript load for quote JSON (like this), then JavaScript parse JSON and prepare ticker content.

    When YF have heavy load, drops can be experienced.
