XF 1.2 Imbedding Yahoo Finance charts/iframe

I need an option to type in both the ID and the name of the ticker - in this case it's JASO, but this has to be customizable when I post the bb-code. Or I guess the {$id} could just start after /1.0/ ?

Also; I would like to have this chart embedded in every last post of certain threads on my forum. Is this doable on XenForo?

It will be possible but you will need to create a custom BB code.
Which parts of the URL are configurable?
If there is more than one option you will probably need to do a PHP callback.
I tried making a custom BB code, as [media]{$id}[/media]

with http://api.finance.yahoo.com/instrument/1.0/{$id} as "Match Url" and

<iframe allowtransparency="true" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" hspace="0" vspace="0" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" src="http://api.finance.yahoo.com/instrument/1.0/{$id}" width="200px" height="603px"><a href="[a href="http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=JASO/">Quote[/a] for JASO/</a></iframe>
as "Embed HTML"

I then posted
but got no results. I also tried changing the {$id} to be just after "AppID=", but that didn't do anything either.

Are you able to make this work?
