A simple and easy configurable plugin that allows you to insert inline stock quotes with stock price information (data provided by Google Finance). Insertion is enabled by shortcode.
Google in September 2017 completely abandoned free stock API we used for Stock Quote plugin. That is reason why plugin does not work anymore. We’ll try to find other stock resource allowed by wordpress.org rules and update plugin. If you have any advise or example of free stock API, feel free to contact me!
As soon as I find good alternative for Google Finance allowed for plugins hosted on WordPress.org, and implement new API to plugin, I’ll release new version of plugin and publish update on this page and in community threads https://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-not-working-558/ and https://wordpress.org/support/topic/fix-for-api-breakage/
Stock Quote is simplified, static inline variation of Stock Ticker plugin.
