Hi,

When selecting Yahoo as source for exchange rate updates, an error is thrown:

Error
Could not retrieve the Yahoo Financial feed


It appears that as of January 3rd, 2019, Yahoo has retired query.yahooapis.com and the relevant service.
See e.g. here: www.valuewalk.com/2019/01/yahoo-retires-yql-services/

Since the ECB update affects only a fraction of the available currencies, it would sure be nice to continue offering an alternative in the plugin.

Many thanks in advance for looking into this!

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback. We'll remove the Yahoo finance choice from the plugin and add support for an alternative.
