Quotes Collection version 1.4

Quotes Collection plugin for WordPress version 1.4 — new version with new features.

What’s new?

  • Sequential refresh: The random quote widget need not be that random after all. You can set it such that the quotes are rotated sequentially, in the order added, latest first.
  • Automatic refresh: The user don’t have to click on the ‘Next quote’ link to get a new quote. The plugin can do it automatically. You just have to turn on the ‘Auto refresh’ option and set a time interval in the widget options. A word of warning though, it’s not advisable to turn on this feature in traffic heavy websites.
  • Quotes Collection‘ admin panel is now listed as a first-level menu from being a sub-menu under ‘Tools’. Just look below the ‘Settings’ menu in your admin area.
  • 1.4 has other minor fixes, changes and improvements

The plugin can be downloaded from the quotes collection page at WordPress plugin repository.

Break

For the next month, I’ll be completely staying away from development / maintenance / work on WordPress themes and plugins. I’ve already not been able to reply to comments posted here, there is just so much of spam comments and repeated questions that I am not able to moderate and respond to each comment individually. But I did make it a point to respond to emails as much as possible. The coming month, I won’t be responding to emails as well.

This break is necessary for me. Over the past few months, I’ve been losing interest in WP development and it’s reflected in the non-maintenance of this website and my themes/plugins. Web development, and playing with WP themes and plugins started as a hobby for me, but now it has become some kind of obligation. I need this break in order to give myself a chance of getting back the motivation and drive for development.

So, the final word: no updating themes and plugins in May, no responding to comments and emails. Happy May!

PS: If you need any help/support regarding my themes and plugins, you can post your question at http://wordpress.org/support/. I’m sure the nice folks out there will help you out quickly. Cheers.
