David’s Pithy Quotes


This plugin adds a new table to your WordPress database so you can save any number of short (100 character) quotations, comments, sayings, or anything you want. Then you can have them display in your site’s header (or anywhere you choose) by adding a function to your theme’s template file.


  • The screenshot displays the editing page added to your WordPress installation.


  1. Upload the dg_pithy.quotes folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


How do I get the quote to appear on my site?

Add the following code to your site’s template file where you want the quote to appear:

if ( function_exists( 'dg_pq_getQuote' ) ) dg_pq_getQuote();

You added a table to my database?! How do I get rid of it?

When you deactivate the plugin it will also remove the database table. Be warned, though! You’ll lose any quotes you’ve added!
