FAQ

Widget: How to make the Quote Title look like a standard Heading in my Widget Area?

If you are using the Easy-Quotes Block as a Widget, try to find out what Header Tag your Theme uses as Widget Title. Usually this should be “h2” or “h3”. In your Widget Block Settings “Title” you can then set that value.
Same for the CSS-Class. Under your Easy-Quotes Block Settings “Advanced” you can enter that classname under “Title CSS class(es)”.

Google Fonts: Are the Google Fonts hostet by google or local on your site?

Both: While you’re at the backend of your site, and trying out different Fonts, they’ll get loaded from an external google location.
When you’ve found a font that pleases you, and your quote is viewed for the first time on the frontend, the font gets automatically downloaded to a local folder.
From this time on, only the local font is in use.

Daily Quotes: How to link a quote to a specific day?

Just change the “Published”-Date of your quote to this time. The quote will then be shown every year at that day. The year won’t matter.
(So if you publish a quote on e.g.: 2020-02-29, the quote will pop up every 4 years in a leap year.)
If there is no Quote associated with a day, the most recently published one is displayed.

Random or Daily Quote won’t update

This should be a Cache Problem. If you’re using a Cache Plugin your site gets cached and can’t show dynamic content.
You have to switch off your Cache Plugin or try the experimental feature “Avoid caching” in your Easy-Quote Block-Settings. (This will fetch the dynamic content through the REST-API and leaves your Cache intact.)

Great app to use. It is simple and works well. Also useful to rotate quotes automatically and where needed based on a selected category. Easy to implement and setup in pages and posts with Gutenberg editor.

Vielen Dank für das Plugin! Es bietet genau die Funktionen, die wir für unser Projekt benötigen. Eine Frage oder Anregung: Die Einbindung via Shortcode z.B. in der Top Bar wäre noch eine coole Funktion.

Habe einige Plugins ausprobiert. Die waren einfach zu bedienen aber nicht so das wirklich richtige. Dieses macht einen guten Eindruck.
