Quote of the Day from


This WordPress widget places a Quote of the Day from onto your website. It uses AYNCHRONOUS JavaScript to ensure that it will NEVER slow down your own website or delay any rendering times (same technology used by Facebook and Google Analytics).

By default this plugin will display quotes from our list of personally-approved Quote of the Day quotes, but you can visit the Quote of the Day generator page to get the JavaScript code for any quote topic, author, actor, movie, TV show, book, video game or custom List.

Simply choose from over 300 of our most popular quote topics and authors in the dropdown, or if you’d rather have absolute control over your quotes then create your own list and copy the custom script from into the textarea. Simply make your own List of quotes on, then get the Quote of the Day script from your list!

Check out the TooManyQuotes Quote of the Day generator page for more information.

See the bottom right sidebar of the Ruby On Rails Gallery to see this plugin in use. uses a custom List of quotes. You can create your own List of quotes that work well for your website, then use that list for your Quote of the Day.


Just like any other sidebar widget:

  1. Upload qotd.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place the Quote of the Day widget in your sidebar
  4. Choose from over 300 of the most popular quote topics and authors, or get the JavaScript for a different Quote of the Day and copy it to the widget’s settings.
