How do I use the module?
Create a new module (using Joomla's Module Manager) and assign it to the pages you want it to appear
Define the stocks to track
Then simply provide a comma-separated list of stock symbols.
Choosing the information to view
Then decide which information (symbol, name, prev. close, open, last trade, change, change in percent...) of the stock symbols you want to show in the stocks table. You can define the order by choosing the appropiate information in the respective data entry (from 1 to 12 possible).
You can decide whether/which headers should be supplied for the according data entry. Alternatively, you can decide to not show any headers at all.
Adapting the design
Stockster Quotes comes with a number of pre-defined designs. This helps you to quickly deploy the module in your site.
Of course, you can also use a custom, CSS generated design. Then use the "Clean design" option to suppress the standard formatting and go ahead to include the formatting in the template of your site.
How do I find out the stock symbols to use?

How do change the direction of the table?
Simply use the "table orientation" setting.
