I have the html Code but the instructions say that I am required to create 2 empty PHP files in the root directory. One is as 'Index PHP' root file and the other is a 'Converter PHP' root file.

Any thoughts and direction are appreciated in advance.

Thanks,

Paul.

Hey Paul, is there a reason you can't use a wordpress plugin for this? A plugin should not require you to manually add php pages.

Hi Christian,
Thank you for your quick response. Can you suggest a plugin to use? I have been hesitant about employing too many plugins, but will give it a try.
Cheers,

Paul.

P.S. I am now following you if you do not mind.

Hey Paul, no worries.

I don't have any exerience with currency converters so I don't feel qualified to recommend one, but I word do a plugin search for "currency converter" and try a couple of different ones out to see which one best suits your needs. Remember you can look at the reviews of a plugin before installing it. And you can always uninstall it if you feel like it's affecting your site performance. You can install and uninstall as many as you want as a premium member so don't worry about that.

Also, I feel the 5 plugin cap is a bit conservative. Yes, some plugins can drastically affect performance, but many of them do not affect it at all. I have one blog site that is running in excess of 24 plugins that performs better than one that is running 10. The reason is the one that is running 10 has one that it employs that consumes a lot of resources. But the performance is not so bad that it is turning off the site's visitors.

I always look for plugins to use vs trying to custom write something myself for any task.

That's just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the like, Christian.
The converter I'd like to use has three elements to it.

I can't seem to copy it into the box here so I will attach it. Let me know if it came through as attached.

Thanks.

Great suggestions, Christian.

I sent the above response prior to receiving your response above. I have reviewed some plugins for currency converters but I am seeking something a bit unique. See the comment above.
I sent the html in an attachment.

There is no worry if you cannot assist. I always 'muddle' my way through. All part of the learning.
Thanks.

Paul.

Hey Paul,

No attachment came through. WA strips HTML and other code so if you're trying to upload that, it may be blocking it.

If you're seeking something custom, it may be a good idea to consider hiring someone to build it for you. A lot of times you can find someone to do tasks like this on fiverr.com for a very reasonable price.

With that said, I'm willing to take a look at what you're trying to do and give some guidance if I can. Maybe try writing up what functionality you are trying to accomplish and I can give it some thought.

Hey, Man.
You are a truly 'stand-up' guy.
I'm actually ahead of myself and the addition of the converter can wait a while.

What I wiil do, if you want to look at it (it's kind of interesting) is try to send it to you through PM. If it goes through, great. If not, no hurries, no worries.

I will contact support here at WA. They have been absolutely great so far.

The fiverr suggestion is also a good one.

Thank you.

Paul.

Thanks for the compliment. Just trying to pay forward all of the help I've received along the way. This is a great community of folks that really want to help.

Feel free to PM me what you're trying to do whenever it is convenient and I'll be happy to help if I can.

Contacting WA support is not a bad idea, but I believe something like this is going to fall outside their purview.

Sounds great, Christian.

I'm close to finding what I'm looking for online. I'll leave it at that for now.

It's just great to know that I'm a part of your team. I'm looking forward to viewing your sites. I'm not there yet but getting close.

Over and out for now and I wish you a fabulous day.

It was a pleasure to get to know you.

Cheers.

Paul.
