Quotes Collection
Feature Request: Widget URL Link to Main Quotes Page (3 posts)

    Hi,

    The Quotes Collection is absolutely superb - thank you for building it.

    There's only one thing that would make it perfect for me... is there a way of the widget being able to have a URL field that can link to the main quotes page? Like a "more" link so that people can see all of the quotes on one page.

    Ideally, the text should be editable (so I guess that's 2 fields - URL and URL text).

    Anyway, would be great if this feature could be considered for the next version.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi ZainB, you can do what you are wanting to do right now just using some HTML in the default WP text widget:

    - create a page with all the quotes on it (using the plugins shortcode - [quotcoll] ), and make a note of the post / page URL,

    - then insert a link to your post/page within the text widget, like so:

    YOUR POST's NAME OR DESCRIPTION GOES HERE

    (You could add some fancy styling such as a border too if you wanted, and opening in a new page is optional of course. To add a paragraph / space between the top & bottom of the link you could just add <p> and </p> at the beginning and end of the above code...). If you place the text widget directly beneath the quotes widget it might even look like it's actually part of the QC widget (depends on your theme).

    Hope this help, and I agree, it's a really great plugin :-). It's a really nice way to present little bits of information - A big THANK YOU to the wonderful developer(s). Much appreciated!

    Doh! - the HTML I wrote got automatically linked!!! - I'll add a space between all the < > brackets so that you can see the code, just remove the spaces when copying it....... here goes:

    < a href="YOUR-POST-OR-PAGE-URL-GOES-HERE.com" target="_blank" > YOUR POST's NAME OR DESCRIPTION GOES HERE >
