Just a simple project that prints random quotes anywhere on a wordpress page. Essentially it is just a custom post type that includes the quote and the author. A single function call returns the random quote which can then be displayed wherever you like on your pages.
To use the plugin just add the quotes using the WordPress admin interface on your site. Then to get the quotes to display on the site, call quote_dispaly_random() to display a default styling or the quote_random() function which will return an associative array with both the content, author and date in it. For more details see http://www.jasonernst.com/projects/quotes/ for more details.
Update: As of version 1.05 it is also possible to use the widget system to display a random quote. You can style the quote by creating css for the "quote" class.
The reason why this format was chosen, was to create the most flexibility for use in a template. It is easy to stick these inside of a div or apply css styling to it.
