Aviation Quotes

Description

Aviation Quotes is a very simple plugin that’ll generate a random aviation quote on your website every hour.

  • Data is cached locally (using the WordPress transient API) for 60 minutes.

What will the plugin do?

The aviation quotes plugin will retrieve a random aviation quote from our API and display the data anywhere on your website.

I can’t see shortcode in my WordPress sidebar. What should I do?

There’s an option to uncomment a single line at the bottom of the aviation-quotes.php file that’ll enable shortcodes in widgets. The alternative is to install another plugin that provides the option in a form (Hiztory).

What are the plans for the future?

We plan on implementing a large number of improvements. They include:

  • Bulding upon our strong database of over 5000 quotes.
  • Submit your own quotes back to us.
  • Additional formatting options.
  • Request quote based on specific keywords or type of quote (history, comedy etc.)
