A plugin that enables you to display a random quote from your collection on sidebar, posts and pages.
th0th's Quotes is a plugin that allows you to show quotes from your collection in custom places of your WordPress (like sidebar -with widget-, pages and posts).
The plugin comes with a widget working out-of-the-box. Widget has no settings, it is pretty simple. After activating plugin you can add widget and it will show a random quote each time page is reloaded.
You can display your quotes also in pages or posts using shortcode of the plugin. Plugin has shortcode
[th0ths_quotes]. You can insert this to page or post that you want to show your quote on. By default, shortcode will work just like the widget, showing a random quote for your collection. However, you can specify the quote using parameters.
You can narrow down your collection using
owner parameter. Thus, a random quote will be chosen from quotes only with the specified owner. For example,
[th0ths_quotes owner=Buddha] will show a random quote of quotes whose owner is 'Buddha'.
You also can show one specific quote on a page or post. For this you can use
[th0ths_quotes id=3] will show only one quote id of which is 3.
Now you can narrow down quotes that are used in shortcode by using tags. After adding a specific tag to quote in management menu, you can use
[th0ths_quotes tag=<tag here>] to show quotes with the tag you specified.
NOTE: id parameter supersedes owner parameter, and owner parameter supersedes tag.
You can define custom style for the division on which quote displayed using shortcode to match your theme or your needs. Shortcode has
class parameter which will set a css class for the division that quote will be displayed in. Using this class you can set a custom displaying style. For example,
[th0ths_quotes class=quote_div] will cause the output
<div class="quote_div">...</div> so that you can define custom width, height, etc. for your quote displaying division.
