Streaming News and Stock etc... WordPress

  • SOLVED

I need a plugin, or php code, that i could insert to give me the current time in multiple locations (korea and finland). I also need a stock ticker that i can specify which stocks to display from finalnd and korea like this : http://www.fcc.or.jp/news.php . I also need a plugin to stream news from a news website (korea and finland).

I am also looking for a plugin that will act as a second "Posts" thing? basically i have a blog template on my website, and it streams all of the "Posts", I want a plugin that can be completely separate from my categories and posts and will function the same and allow either a shortcode or something that i can place in a page.

Thanks, If someone can answer all thats great, otherwise i can split the money among people?

For World Clock Try these plugins [[LINK href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/local-time-clock/screenshots/"]]Local Time Clock[[/LINK]] and [[LINK href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/flash-world-clock/screenshots/"]]Flash World Clock[[/LINK]].

For Stock Ticker you can try [[LINK href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-stock-ticker/screenshots/"]]WP Stock Ticker[[/LINK]]. It pulls data from Yahoo! Finance so if Korea's and Finland's markets are there, this plugin should support them.

For your second posts thing, what you need is [[LINK href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types"]]Custom Post Types[[/LINK]]. You may want to look into that.

Navjot any other ideas for the clock? local clock only shows one time zone and flash world only has 3 options of 6 places, and non are finland or korea.

The stock ticker is nice thanks!

For News from Finland and Korea, use [[LINK href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/rss-just-better/screenshots/"]]RSS Just better[[/LINK]] plugin. It has options for selecting Google News source and countries from where you want to show the news.
