Hỏi đáp

How to hide the ‘Next quote »’ link in the widget?

You can do this by turning off the ‘Ajax Refresh’ feature in widget options.

How to change the link text from ‘Next quote »’ to something else?

This text can be changed from Quotes Collection -> Options in your WordPress admin area

The ‘Next quote »’ link is not working. Why?

Make sure your theme’s header.php file has the code <?php wp_head(); ?> just before </head>. If you still experience the problem, contact the plugin author.

I have added a number of quotes, but some of the quotes never get displayed in the widget. Why?

If you want all of the quotes to display, make sure all all the quotes fall within the ‘Character limit’. There is an option named ‘Character limit’ for the widget (bottom most, under the ‘advanced options’) with a default value of ‘500’. The value can be changed, or simply removed and the field left blank so that none of the quotes get filtered out based on length.

I have a long list of quotes, and the `[quotcoll]` shortcode puts all of the quotes in a single page. Is there a way to introduce pagination and break the long list of quotes into different pages?

Yes, pagination is supporterd in versions 1.5 and greater. paging and limit_per_page attributes can be used to achieve this. For example, [quotcoll paging=true limit_per_page=30] will introduce pagination with a maximum of 30 quotes per page.

Can an existing shortcode be converted to a Gutenberg block?

Yes, the existing shortcode will appear as ‘Classic’ block in the block editor interface. All you need to do is click on the ‘More options’ (three vertical dots on the top right corner) and click ‘Convert to Blocks’ in order to convert the shortcode into a ‘Quotes’ block.

What a stunning little plugin! So easy to use and works flawlessly. Sincere thanks!

I've had this running for all of a week, and I've had to reset it three times. It just stops working due to some kind of bug. Going to find something that works instead.

It is relatively easy to use. The link to the plugin home page isn't working. For accessibility, I would like the <div> tags with class "quotescollection-quote-wrapper" changed to <blockquote> when used in the widget area. Developers in Higher ED would not be able to use this plug-in. Accessibility is tied to federal funding, so it is important.

This is a simple plugin that works really well. I used this to replace a similar, but very outdated plugin on a client's site. The import/export functionality was a real bonus! Thanks for creating this.

I spent a few hours yesterday trying to massage my text file of quotes into a JSON file to import and even after two converters did their thing, it would say it imported the right number of quotes but nothing was there. In order to delete all of them, I found I had to deactivate and delete the plug-in before trying again. In desperation I manually entered one quote and exported it to see how the file varied from that I had. Turned out the "field" names - quote, author etc were capitalized by the converters because I'd entered a line with header info that was capitalized and the exported file was all lower case. After grepping all the field names I imported again. This time it managed to import but everything was marked private. I deactivated and deleted a last time and did a global replacement on my JSON file to add the final field for each quote showing public. My suggestion is to do the manual entry trick before starting the data-massage process if you have a lot of quotes. I've done the thrashing so you don't have to!
