The WP-Quotes WordPress Plugin displays quotes, links, or any other information you want on your WordPress blog. I use mind for displaying random quotes, but there are a lot of things you can use this for.
What makes WP-Quotes different from other random text WordPress Plugins and scripts is the fact that it interacts with the WordPress database. Interaction with the stored content is through the WordPress Administration Panels, allowing you to input, edit, and sort your random text or content. Other random text generators work from a text file uploaded to your site.
I love featuring random quotes related to my article content on my main site, Taking Your Camera on the Road, and I use it in the sidebar. I have some other interesting ideas for its use on my family history blog that I’ll share with you soon.
I’ve been using other WordPress Plugins to make my random quotes work, so I wanted to use the same quotes but with this new Plugin. To get my huge list of quotes into the WP-Quotes table in the database, I came up with a method for importing my quotes into the database.
I’d love to see this Plugin turned Widget added to the Widget arsenal on WordPress.com blogs.
Thank you to Abhijit Nadgouda of ifacethoughts for bringing this to my attention.
