Hi, as I find out under "Localisation->Currencies" the currencies do no more update because Yahoo stopped the service.

Regards

    Darn, I had not noticed it, thanks for letting us know.

    Added it to GitHub Issues: https://github.com/arastta/arastta/issues/729

    My old website uses http://www.webservicex.net

    If it helps, here's the file contents.

    <?php

    class CURRENCY_WEBSERVICEX extends ISC_CURRENCY
    {
    public $_id;
    public $_name;
    public $_description;
    public $_help;
    public $_url;
    public $_targetURL;

    public function __construct()
    {
    // Setup the required variables for the module
    parent::__construct();

    $this->_id = "currency_webservicex";
    $this->_name = GetLang("CWebXName");
    $this->_description = GetLang("CWebXDesc");
    $this->_help = GetLang("CWebXHelp");
    $this->_url = "http://www.webservicex.net";

    // Target URL
    $this->_targetURL = "http://www.webservicex.net/CurrencyConvertor.asmx/ConversionRate";
    }

    public function FetchExchangeRate($fromCode, $toCode)
    {
    // Can make a SOAP request but a REST (POST or GET) request is quicker
    // The fields to post
    $postFields = "FromCurrency=" . urlencode(strtoupper($fromCode)) . "&ToCurrency=" . urlencode(strtoupper($toCode));

    $rtn = PostToRemoteFileAndGetResponse($this->GetTargetURL(), $postFields);

    // If we have failed then there is nothing really useful you can tell the client other than this service is temporarly unavailable
    if (!$rtn) {
    $this->SetError(GetLang("CurrencyProviderRequestUnavailable"));
    return false;
    }

    // Now we parse the return XML. Its not a big XML result and we only need one value out of it so we don't need anything heavy to read it.
    // If the parsing failed or if we didn't receive a value then we wern't given a valid XML due to the code(s) being incorrect
    $xml = @simplexml_load_string($rtn);
    if(!is_object($xml)) {
    $this->SetError(GetLang("CurrencyProviderRequestInvalidCode"));
    return false;
    }

    if (empty($xml)) {
    return (double)$xml;
    } else {
    return (double)$xml[0];
    }
    }
    }

    Note that it is written in php 5.2 so it may need updating.

    Dear Rune,

    I'm sorry to see that nobody has resolved this currency issue in GitHub.

    Kind regards

    Hermann

    It's a shame after this time that the currency exchange do NOT update. NO FIX FOR IT?

    While I understand your pain ...

    The software is free open source, available at GitHub for you and me, and everyone else.
    We are all free to contribute and improve it, providing fixes etc.

    Did you pay for Arastta?! Did you contribute to Arastta?!

    The only shame is people yelling at others, for something they got for free.
