Support » Plugins » Problem with Sidebar Widget and Random Qoute Plug-in

  • Resolved ternef4339


    Can someone give me some help with my Sidebar Widget and Random Quote problem? I use the Sidebar Widget Plug-in and the Random Quote Plug-in

    In my earlier sidebar.php I called the Random Quote Plug-in with the code bellow

    <?php wp_quotes_random(); ?>

    but I can’t use this code in a the Sidebar Widget’s Text widget. When I looked at my page is the text widget empty. What do I do wrong?

    a) Text Widgets can’t contain PHP code
    b) Text Widgets are filtered unless you have the “unfiltered HTML” role set
    c) WP-Quotes hasn’t been updated in a while. While you could use the ExecPHP Widget to make a text widget that *does* support PHP code, it would make a bit more sense to use a plugin that is more up-to-date and supports widgets natively. Like Joe’s Quotes Widget or something similar.

    Thank you so much for your help, Otto! I have downloaded and installed the Joe’s Ouotes Widget and it works great.


    Joe’s Widget does work. But I’ve been unable to access them — for selection, deletion, addition.

    Any ideas on how I should tweak my installation? Thanks…

    The quote files are text files. Just edit them.
