Adding a stock ticker using extension module or style?

Post by ajmcello »

I'm interested in adding the current stock ticker information for a particular stock forum I created in phpBB. It would be nice if it would display live data somewhere at the top, or maybe open up in a separate page? I'm not sure. Is there anything available to do anything similar or has anything like this been implemented that I could look at?

Thanks

Have you looked at any of the stock ticker APIs?

If you open overall_header.html in templates folder this should work at end of file:


Code: Select all

<!-- IF FORUM_ID == 123 -->
// Your HTML/javascript for stock ticker.
<!-- ENDIF -->
123 needs to be the id of the forum.
