    I am trying to get a stock quote box to show on a page and found a free plugin
    "Top Position Yahoo Finance"
    Can't find the authors site & the comments in the code are in spanish or some other language.

    If I post this code in the template adding a few stock symbols like this it works fine:
    <?php tpyf_output('^IXIC,MSFT,GOOG,AAPL') ?>

    But, I want it in a page so I use the following shortcode:
    [tpyf#^IXIC,MSFT,GOOG,AAPL]
    When using this, the last symbol always shows a zero instead of the stock price.
    If I put a comma after AAPL, it will show that price but then put a line under it with a zero.

    Any ideas on how to get the shortcode to work? I can link to the page or link to the plugin if anyone cares to look at the code?

    thx !
