Quotes Collection 2.5, with Gutenberg blocks

Quotes Collection plugin for WordPress version 2.5 released with two new Gutenberg blocks.

The ‘Quotes’ block

The ‘Quotes’ block helps you display the collection of quotes in a WordPress page or a post. Existing [quotcoll] shortcode can also be converted into ‘Quotes’ block.

The ‘Random Quote’ block

Works very similar to the ‘Random Quote’ widget.

These blocks come with presentation options. You can easily change the background and font colours, alignment, etc., from the block controls.

Other changes with version 2.5

  • The shortcode now includes refresh options and options to hide author and/or source.
  • Option to specify the minimum user level required to add and manage quotes. Previously, anyone with ‘Editor’ or greater credentials could add and manage quotes.
  • Fixed the bug that included a dummy ‘Quotes Collection’ menu in admin menus for unauthorized users.
  • Localization is now entirely handled at translate.wordpress.org.

Thanks to all the translators of the plugin. Hope you will continue translating the new strings at translate.wordpress.org.

And heartfelt thanks to all the users of the plugin all these years. Your feedback, encouragement and suggestions have helped me maintain this plugin for so long.

The plugin can be downloaded from the Quotes Collection plugin page at WordPress.org.
