Quotes Collection plugin helps you collect, manage and display your favourite quotations in your WordPress blog.

Features and notes

  • Admin interface: An admin interface to add, edit and manage quotes. Details such as author and source of the quote, and attributes like tags and visibility, can be specified. The 'Quotes' menu in the WP admin navigation leads to the quotes admin interface.
  • Sidebar widget: The Random Quote sidebar widget with Ajax refresh feature -- you will be able to get another random quote on the same space without refreshing the web page. Following is the list of options in the widget control panel:
    • Widget title
    • Option to show/hide quote author
    • Option to show/hide quote source
    • Turn on/off the ajax refresh feature
    • Choose random or sequential order for refresh
    • Option to refresh the quote automatically
    • Show only quotes with certain tags
    • Specify a character limit and filter out bigger quotes
  • Shortcode: Quotes can be displayed in a WordPress page by placing a [quotcoll]shortcode. Few examples are provided below. For more examples and the full list of arguments, please refer the plugin homepage or 'other notes'. (Note: The new [quotcoll] shortcode is introduced in version 1.5, that makes use of the WordPress shortcode API. The older [quote] shortcode is deprecated, though it will still work as a measure of backwards compatibility.)
    • Placing [quotcoll] in the page displays all quotes.
    • [quotcoll author="Somebody"] displays quotes authored by Somebody.
    • [quotcoll tags="tag1,tag2,tag3"] displays quotes tagged tag1 or tag2 or tag3, one or more or all of these
    • [quotcoll orderby="random" limit=1] displays a random quote
  • The template function: To code the random quote functionality directly into a template file, the template function quotescollection_quote() can be used. Please refer the plugin homepage or 'other notes' for details.
  • Compatible with WordPress 3.0 multi-site functionality.
  • The plugin suppports localization. Refer the plugin page or 'other notes' for the full list of available languages and the respective translators.
