- Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/randomquotrdirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
- Use the Settings->RandomQuotr screen add quotes in the textarea on the left-hand side. Quotes are split by carriage returns (line breaks)
- Use the following hooks to display the quotes:
Get a random quote
rdqr_random_quote(); – this will display the text automatically.
$quote = rdqr_get_random_quote(); – this stores the text within a variable.
Getting a specific quote
rdqr_target_quote(3); – this will display the third quote in the list.
$quote = rdqr_get_target_quote(); – this stores the text within a variable.
I’m using rdqr_target_quote(0) and nothing’s coming up! I know I have added quotes
The list starts at 1 not 0.
rdqr_target_quote and rdqr_get_target_quote are not doing anything!
Make sure that you are passing in a valid value. If you are passing in an invalid number (below 1, above the number of quotes), a non-number (“forty”), or there are no quotes to get, all of the functions will return null.

Can a shortcode be used to display a specific quote?
