Our stock market plugin for WordPress has been updated today.
Version 3.1.2 brings the ability to have more than one ticker on the screen at a time. Previous to this version there was problems in doing this.
Some users have it setup in such a way that they have a ticker in the header or footer on their WordPress site but also wanted to be able to show another ticker somewhere in the page content of WordPress.
As well as this there was a couple of minor bug fixes in this release as well.
How to get the update
Existing users with a current licence will see the update right inside their WordPress dashboard. Visit the update centre of plugin section of WordPress and you will see an update for 3.1.2.
The update is free for all users with a current licence.
