InvestorGuide.com Stock Ticker Link WordPress Plugin

By: , dated January 1st, 2010

InvestorGuide.com Stock Ticker Link WordPress Plugin lets you automatically link ticker symbols within your posts to our stock and mutual fund research page on InvestorGuide.com. All you have to do is write your article the way you normally would and enclose the ticker symbol to be linked within parenthesis. For example,

  • Apple (AAPL)
  • Google (GOOG)
  • Microsoft (MSFT)
  • Vanguard 500 Index Fund (VFINX)

Our plugin will automatically detect these ticker symbols and link them to the specific research page for the stock, mutual fund, or ETF.

Why should you use this?

There are two primary benefits for using this plugin

  1. You don’t have to spend the few extra minutes to manually link the ticker symbols
  2. It gives your readers access to additional relevant information

Installation Instruction

  1. Download the plugin from WordPress.org
  2. Unzip
  3. Upload to your wp-content/plugins folder
  4. Activate the plugin

That’s it!

How To Use

Simply include ticker symbols within parenthesis in your article and the plugin will take care of the rest.

How to stop the plugin from autolinking certain ticker symbols or acronyms?

There are two ways to achieve this:

  1. You could list the ticker symbol or acronym in the filter list via the Settings admin area
  2. You could link the ticker symbol or acronym in the post itself.
