Rorschach Quote


Adds the Rorschach Quotes widget, which displays randomly selected Rorschach quotes from the Watchmen graphic novel. Rated Mature for graphic content.

Each quote is wrapped in a <blockquote class="rorschach">, is properly cited, and includes a link to the Watchmen entry on Wikipedia.

This widget and its author are in no way associated with DC Comics, Warner Bros., Alan Moore, or anyone else that claims a financial stake in Watchmen, and I’m not looking to challenge any of their claims to copyright or profit financially in any way from this plugin.


  1. Upload rorschach-quote.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Drop the widget in your sidebar or place <?php rorschach_quote(); ?> in your template
