Automatic Currency Updates

Average Rating: 5
Description
This is an update of Masterblaster's original currency update mod designed to automate currency conversion updates by turning them into a CRON / scheduled job.

This module takes account of Zen Cart's currency conversion ratio when updating the currency conversation rates held in your database. This allows store owners to use the module and price products to cover the costs of currency conversion.

NOTE: In Zen Cart 1.5.5 and above, the admin/currency_cron.php facility can be used.

Version History

Automatic Currency Updates   -   Version: 5.0
In this version application_top.php was added so the Zen Cart structure can be utilized. This way mysql and mysqli commands are obsolete and replaced by i.e. $db. This give better compatibility for future releases of Zen cart

NOTE: Starting with ZC v1.5.5 a cron job script is supplied within Zen Cart, allowing you to trigger automated currency updates to use whatever currency-rate source your store is equipped with.

Automatic Currency Updates   -   Version: 4.0
The PHP "ereg" and "mysql_db_query" functions are deprecated in PHP 5.3.0. Therefore I have switched to using SimpleXML and mysqli objects instead. I have tested it on PHP 5.3.1. XAMPP on Windows XP and also PHP 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.10 on Ubuntu 8.04.

Note: This version REQUIRES PHP5.0 or better. If you are still running PHP4, please use the prior version.

Automatic Currency Updates   -   Version: 3.0
This update does away with the need to screen-scrape sites
whose terms of use now forbid this. Instead is uses the reference rates
published daily by the European Central Bank. There is a link for more
information about the currencies available and the update process in the
mod's revised readme file.

NOTE: This version requires that your PHP configuration has allow_url_fopen set to true.
