Support » Plugins » Quote of the Day Plugin

  • I’ve just spent the last hour looking for a plugin with no luck. I need something that will display a daily quote on my page – but it needs to be daily and it cannot be random. I need to specify what quote will show on what day, in other words.

    I’ve looked at wp-quotes and wp-utterquotes and unless I’m missing something, neither one does what I need to do.

    Any suggestions?

  • There are so many quote plugins and all of them are either outdate or don’t work,

    I’m looking for exactly the same kind of plugin. Help!!!

    I like the idea of a random per day quote vs every time the browser refreshes surely, some of the quote plugins can be modified to do this ?

    Anyone ?

    @gspark: That is a pretty generic reply. My wp-utterquotes is working. Don’t know about the others.

    @modestopinions: I’m sorry I missed your post. I should be able to do what you want.

    I just checked some code I have and I do have a function called wp_utterquotes_daily($topic = ‘ ‘). I knew I had done this for someone else. If your plugin code does not have that function, please let me know and I’ll send it to you.

    Here’s were you can find a “daily quote” widget.

    I’m not sure if it works well as I’m a newbie who is preparing to build my first web—with daily quotes!



    I tried that code but its not working

    < ?php wp_utterquotes_daily($topic = ‘ ‘); ? >

    the code is in the plugin so not sure why it wouldn’t be working is ($topic=’ ‘); correct ?

    I get a blank even though the topic has quotes



    Concerning quote of the day, you need to have at least 365 quotes entered for that category. The logic is that it looks for a quote based upon the numeric day of the year. So, if the day is 325, it looks for quote number 325. That could be the problem.

    Sorry for not responding sooner. If you have additional questions, please email me at jwurster at comcast dot net.

    @modestopinions: Since this topic is marked as “not resolved”, let me suggest you my plugin “shantz-wp-qotd”, which will do what you want. It has a random mode, to pick a quote randomly, a ‘quote of the day” mode, to show a quote based on today’s date and a “quote of that day” mode, to show a quote based on the date when the post was made. It has many other features as well, along with widget support, and will add more over the next few days. You can check it out at
    Do make a comment there (or say a word about it on ur site) if you like it. 🙂
