Installation


QuoteLib is a WordPress plugin, and as so it should be installed just as any other both free or premium WordPress plugin.

2. If downloaded as a zip archive, extract the Plugin folder to your desktop.
3. Read through the “readme” file thoroughly to ensure you follow the installation instructions.
4. With your FTP program, upload the Plugin folder to the wp-content/plugins folder in your WordPress.
5. Go to Plugins screen and find the newly uploaded “quotelib” Plugin in the list.
6. Click Activate to activate it.

FAQ


What do “Timer” settings do?

The time a quote is displayed is determined by the length of the quote. The quote will display for a shorter or longer than average time depending on the ‘timer’ setting. The ‘timer minimum’ is useful for quotes that are too short to get adequate display time. If a quote will only display for 1 second because it is very short, this setting will force it to display for the minimum so it has time to be read.

How do I use the widget?

To include this plugin in a Widget simply drag-and-drop the QuotesLib widget located in the Widgets Page to the desired location.
