    Hi there,

    I wonder if it would be possible to create another column called Title. A column that only appears before the name of the person under the quotes or index page but without influencing the search of for example [quotes-llama mode=”page”].

    For example Sir Terry Pratchett. Sir will go before first and last name so that it will show under the quotes itself but not as a search option itself. Or Professor Dr. Lea Franken, Professor Dr. as title and Lea Franken, first and last name.

    No idea if that is difficult or not but that way, you have the correct names of people without putting Sir or Dr. etc. together with the first name.

    Just an idea 🙂

    Question… When displaying the authors title in the page list of authors, should it be formatted differently and how? Just doesn’t seem to look right having it the same case. (Franken, Professor Dr. Lea)

    Perhaps: sup or italic.
    author list:
    Franken, <sup>Professor Dr.</sup> Lea
    author display:
    <i>Professor Dr.</i> Lea Franken

    My idea was

    Franken, Lea, Professor Dr.

    without formatting for the title. That way the names will stay the same on the page list of authors the way they are now, with title as an extra. Normally you look for the name itself, the title is to make it complete.

    And the same for the author display:

    Professor Dr. Lea Franken

    without formatting. If you look online or at how you address people in writing, it’s all one name without the title being formatted differently.

    Maybe make a class for title so if people want it differently formatted they can use that?

    Thank you!

    Thanks for that clarification.
    Uploaded version 1.2.0. Let me know how it works.

    That works great thank you!.

    One small thing i noticed if you look at my quotes page:

    https://www.gendji.eu/quotes-quotations/

    If you use the title option, the space between quotes-llama-icon-pencil and the name is the same as quotes-llama-icon-arrow and the source. Which looks good.

    If there is no title, there is “one” space more between quotes-llama-icon-pencil and the name.

    You can see it best at the bottom of my page. Hope my explanation makes sense 🙂

    I think I have this worked out… just doing some other things before making an update. Going to add a dash-icons set for the default author and source displays. Perhaps extend it so it can be selected per individual quote too, eventually. Anyways, I wanted to let you know. Cheers!

    No havoc what so ever on my end :).

    Upgraded and like stated, deactivated/activated the plugin and it all worked without a problem. The “problem” i had with the extra space when using title, is gone.

    The new options with the dash-icons are a great addition, especially the ability to choose on a per quote basis. That is really a huge addition in terms of personalizing the quotes the way you want them.

    Thank you very much!
