  1. You can edit the quotes-collection.css file that comes along with the plugin. The random quote goes in the following format:

    <div id="quotescollection_randomquote-0" class="quotescollection_randomquote">
    <p><q>The quote.</q> <cite>โ€” Author</cite></p>
    <p id="quotescollection_nextquote-0"><a style="cursor: pointer;">Next quote ยป</a></p>
    </div>
  2. Hi, I love this plugin, my problem is the theme I use puts everything in the sidebar into a defined space with color using tags. When I put these around the individual quotes it look weird because the ” quote marks, author and see next quote are all out side of the confined area. I’ve tried fooling with it thru the plugin manager but all I’ve managed to do is cause big errors. Where should I insert this tag in order to have the entire plugin inside the content box?
    Thanks,

  3. Hi Lu, which tag you want to add? Whatever it is, i saw your theme and i think i know how to make the quotes widget look the same as others in the sidebar. In the style.css of your theme, find the code below,

    #sidebar form, #sidebar .block, #sidebar ul
    {
    	margin:0;
    	padding: 2em;
    	font-size: 0.94em;
    	background:url(img/sidebox4Wide.gif) no-repeat bottom center;
    }

    and change it into the following,

    #sidebar form, #sidebar .block, #sidebar ul, #sidebar div
    {
    	margin:0;
    	padding: 2em;
    	font-size: 0.94em;
    	background:url(img/sidebox4Wide.gif) no-repeat bottom center;
    }

    Let me know if it works.

  4. Srini, thanks for such a prompt reply. Your suggestion worked partially. If you look at the website now, quote collection is enclosed in the same style box as all the other sidebar items, the problem now is that box runs too long and is pushing the widget below it out of line because it runs behind it. It doesn’t seem to automatically determine length by the side of the quote.
    We are almost there, if you have any other suggestions I would be very grateful to have the issue resolved. Technical help from people like yourself is important to those of us that are not so CSS savvy. Besides a verbal thanks, I’m donating too. Appreciate the help.

  5. Lu, I have sent you an email asking you for details about the theme you are using. Please check it. And I thank you very much for the donation ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Hey, many thanks for this plugin. I am wondering, as C Martinez, how to change the style of the text rendered? I wish to have the same style as in the rest of my pages.

  7. Quotes Collection seems to do the job nicely for my needs. I’m new at this but I was able to install QC as a widget in my side bar on my blog using “The Red Carpet” theme. Here’s my problem, after installing I was getting error messages. This one came when I tried to access my blog typing in my domain name without the “www”

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/httpd/vhosts/lovedmuch.com/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/quotes-collection/quotes-collection.php:2) in /home/httpd/vhosts/lovedmuch.com/httpdocs/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 850

    This same warning came up earlier after I had installed the widget. But the widget installed and works nicely from what I can see. I really hope I can figure out this little quirk and keep Quotes Collection. I like it! Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated.

  8. Oh – my bad – I should have remembered to tell you I noodled with the code late last night to make it say “Next” instead of “Next quote”. That’s what caused this, isn’t it? I’d like to keep that edit if possible.

  9. I reinstalled from the original files and eliminated the warning message but I’d really like to have “Next quote” changed to say just “Next” or “Next note” – is that possible?

    1. Why not, just replace all instances of ‘Next quote’ to ‘Next’ or ‘Next note’ in the quotes-collection.php file. Let me know if that doesn’t work.
