Quotes Collection

Quotes Collection plugin with Ajax powered Random Quote sidebar widget helps you collect and display your favourite quotes in your WordPress blog.

How to get rid of the quotation marks that surround the random quote?

Open the quotes-collection.css file that comes along with the plugin, scroll down and look towards the bottom.

How to change the random quote text color?

Styling such as text color, font size, background color, etc., of the random quote can be customized by editing the quotes-collection.css file. Please also note that any updates to the plugin will overwrite your customized css file, so it's advisable to backup your customization before updating the plugin.

How to hide the 'Next quote »' link?

You can do this by turning off the 'Ajax Refresh' feature in widget options.

How to change the link text from 'Next quote »' to something else?

Change the value of the variable $quotescollection_next_quote on line 34 of the quotes-collection.php file.

The 'Next quote »' link is not working. Why?

Make sure your theme's header.php file has the code <?php wp_head(); ?> just before </head>. If you still experience the problem, contact the plugin author.

I have added a number of quotes, but some of the quotes never get displayed in the widget. Why?

If you want all of the quotes to display, make sure all all the quotes fall within the 'Character limit'. There is an option named 'Character limit' for the widget (bottom most, under the 'advanced options') with a default value of '500'. The value can be changed, or simply removed and the field left blank so that none of the quotes get filtered out based on length.

Why multiple instances of the widget is not available?

There can be conflicts and undesirable behaviour when more than one instance of the random quote function call is used in the same page, especially with the ajax refresh turned on for all the instances. It is for this reason the multiple instances of the widget is currently unavailable. For the same reason, it is not advised to use the quotescollection_quote() function call more than once in the same page. And for the same reason, the ajax refresh option is not made available for the shortcodes. These limitations shall be overcome in a future version of the plugin.

How to change the admin access level setting for the quotes collection admin page?

Change the value of the variable $quotescollection_admin_userlevel on line 44 of the quotes-collection.php file. Refer WordPress documentation for more information about user roles and capabilities.

I have a long list of quotes, and the `[quotcoll]` shortcode puts all of the quotes in a single page. Is there a way to introduce pagination and break the long list of quotes into different pages?

Yes, pagination is supporterd in versions 1.5 and greater. paging and limit_per_page attributes can be used to achieve this. For example, [quotcoll paging=true limit_per_page=30] will introduce pagination with a maximum of 30 quotes per page.

How about a feature to backup/export/import the bulk of quotes in CSV/text format?

Such a feature will be available in a future version of the plugin, though no promises can be made as to when it will be available!
