Despite not having been updated in two years, this is still my favorite quotes widget.
Users should note that there are some limitations, however. The primary one for me is that the plugin only permits one instance of the widget (read the "readme" file) in the entire site. I get around this by displaying quotes in shortcodes where I need to. The other is that the plugin hasn't been updated in a long time, although the author has responded recently in the support forum.
Good for simple use, does what it should do. However unfortunately it's not compatible with WPML multi-language plugin.
It would be nice to be able to add a picture as well!
Good, clean-cut, and to-the-point!
Here's my Features Wishlist for Consideration for Future Versions: more than one widget availability (currently limited to one instance in widget settings); read anchor tag attributes, most importantly target="_blank" and rel="nofollow"; built-in styling controls or at least some more CSS hooks....
This is a very easy to setup plugin and it works very well. I give it 4 stars but it would be a 5 star if I could add an image or even better, if I could make more than one quote appear in the widget at the same time.
Needs to work in several widget areas
Needs to allow for reordering - editing ID number of a quote
that would bring this to 5 stars.
I would actually prefer if quotes were a custom content type - that would allow for lots of other ways to use this content. but i realize that's alot of rewriting of the code.
i have used this plguin for a long time and really like it but i do keep hitting these two limitations. otherwise the widget is really great.
Works great, but wish it could be used in several places in my widgets. Otherwise, killer plugin!
The only shortcoming is lack of possibility of searching for a quote by text. I have dozens and dozens of quotes and when I try to find that one with a typo (to fix it) or the one that has some copyright on it (to remove it or to add original source) it takes me forever to find it in the admin interface.
Other than that, best quotes plugin ever. Highly recommended.
