    I Find your plugin extremely useful. Do you by any chance intend to upgrade your plugin so that it would support HTML tags?

    I wish to insert links into my tips & quotes and it would be great to do that by using your plugin.

  2. bws_com

    For now, the function strip_tags is set up when outputting text in this block in the plugin, this function deletes all tags in order to avoid the distortion of html in this block but you can delete it – please open the file quotes-and-tips.php and find the lines 187:

    < ?php echo strip_tags(get_the_content()); ?>


    and 209:

    "< ?php echo strip_tags(get_the_content()); ?>"

    Please delete strip_tags( and closing bracket in both lines. You should get the following.

    For 187:

    < ?php echo get_the_content(); ?>


    and for 209:

    "< ?php echo get_the_content(); ?>"

  3. Michael Battaglia

    Can this be used in a sidebar? I can’t seem to ge it to show the quotes

  4. Anton

    it is necessary to add the following code to the template in order to see the block Quotes and Tips on the website
    < ?php if( function_exists( 'qtsndtps_get_random_tip_quote' ) ) qtsndtps_get_random_tip_quote(); ?>

  5. Bhavadasa

    I like the plugin, but I don’t want both the tip and the quote to show; I just want the quote. How do, or can I, get this to work without the division

  6. bws_lvp

    Hello,

    The plugin envisages the displaying only the two together. I you want to display something one, must edit the plugin code.

    Kind regards.

  7. Floyd van Boksel

    Hey, love your plugin so far ^^. Just got a small question, is it/how is it possible to set an image per quote?

  8. bws_lvp

    Hello Floyd,

    You can implement only text there. But you can edit a plugin code and add images to content, so that it will be displayed in the block quote.

    Kind regards

  9. Yaron

    Is it possible to assign tips & quotes to a specific post? Meaning, I wish certain tips to be shown in a specific post and others in another post. Is it possible?

  10. bws_lvp

    Hello Yaron,

    Do you want that some certain tips will appeared on a page of certain post? And other tips will always appeared on the other post page?

    Kind regards

  11. Yaron

    I want to attach certain tips to specific post… Meaning, some tips will only appear in post 1 and some other tips will appear in post 2.. .

  12. bws_lvp

    Hello Yaron,

    Unfortunately, this opportunity doesn’t exist.

    Kind regards

  13. Pierre

    Very nice plugin… very useful for me.

    Is it possible that there be a bug concerning the background image ? I am checking it off in the settings page but it is always there – after multiple cache emptyings…

    Also: I am trying to lower the height of the bloc. Where should I look to do this?

    Thanks in advance for your insignt.

    P.

    Sincerely

    Hi!

    Awesome plugin!

    My problem: I have a long list of some of my fav. quotes and I’d like to upload them so they can change every day automatically.

    How shall I do this?

    Thanks,
    A

  19. Aoife

    Hi again!

    I have a, may be, dull question.

    I don’t like how the quote and the author look like on my website. Is there gonna be a problem if I DON’T put the name but just the quote?

    Cheers!

    P.S. If I give you the list of quotes, can you make some sort of a code that contains the quotes and I can directly place it on my website?

  20. Anna

    Hi Aoife,

    Unfortunately, this functionality is not available, but if you want you can order a paid customization and provide details.

    Sincerely

  21. Anna

    Hi Aoife,

    1) You can leave the Author field emply, it won’t cause any problems.
    2) Yes, but it is a paid service.

    Sincerely

  22. Aoife

    Hi again!

    It seems that when I upload the background photo it doesn’t show up on my website.

    What could be the problem?

    Cheers!

  23. Anna

    Hi Aoife,

    Could you please provide a link to the page where the quotes and tips block should be displayed and a screenshot of the plugin settings page.

    Sincerely
