I'm new to the world of writing plugins. I've been using wordpress for a year or so, but just recently have discovered all that it can give me.
My question is How can I add my own custom content to my page? In other words, is it possible to have another DB table and pull content from that table, then put it in its own space on the index.php?
One example would be a quote of the day plugin. Ideally, I would like to be able to login to the admin console, and from there edit all of the quotes in the database. Then, when the index page loads, a random quote is pulled and inserted near the top of the page or something like that.
I know that there is a hack currently that can do this, but I noticed it does not utilize the plugin interface.
Are there hooks available that will allow me to do this?
