WoW Blockquotes

Easily add Warcraft GM blue post blockquotes with rounded corners to your posts and comments.

Original author notes

Despite the name BlockQuotes, the rounded corner effect isnít actually produced with a blockquote tag (what you get when you click the wpbqbttn.png button). What it actually does is replace all instances of [quote] and [/quote] with several divs to build up the box where the blockquote would normally go. It will also do the same for blockquote tags although you can turn this off.

There are a couple of things to bear in mind when using this plugin:

If you donít close your tags properly then it will probably mess up your template but WordPress will do that everywhere, not just with this plugin. If you have a floated image that overlaps the blockquote, it will sit over the top of the image rather than wrapping round the overlapped part of the image like a proper blockquote. Nested blockquotes look crap with this plugin. Why would you want to use nested blockquotes though, they look crap! If you add any parameters (such as style or cite) to your blockquote tag, it wonít convert your blockquote.

Anyway, give it a whirl and see what you think. Download the plugin, unzip the contents, copy the blockquotes.php file to /wp-content/plugins and then activate it. Simple as that, no initial customisation required as the plugin looks here for the images unless you tell it to look elsewhere. The default images are in the zip file with the plugin if you want to host them yourself or use them as a template to base your own images on.
