Quote This

Allows the user to call random quotes with the quote_this() function, [quote-this] shortcode, or Quote This widget.

Why was this plugin created?

It was just an old script I've had lying around, gathering dust. I've been using it on my personal blog for years, so I figured someone might make some use of it.

How do I call the function in my theme templates?

<?php if ( function_exists( 'quote_this' ) ) quote_this(); ?>

How do I use the shortcode in my posts?

[quote-this]

How do I use the widget?

Head over to the Widgets section in your WordPress admin and click the "Add" button for the Quote This widget. Once added, you can select how you want to display the quotes.

What are the parameters?

type

  • Which type of quotes to show.
  • Possible values: all (default), art, film, friendship, individual, life, literature

orderby

  • How to order the quote(s) shown.
  • Possible values: rand (more options will be added in the future)

echo

  • Whether the quotation should be printed to the screen or returned for use in a function (is not used for the [quote-this] shortcode.)
  • Possible values: true (default), false

Can I get more detailed instructions?

If you need a more detailed guide, see readme.html, which is included with the plugin. It has a few examples and explains everything.
