I easily customized this to have a second Author line by adding another value for an additional space after the dash. if omar had a forum I would have posted for anyone else looking to add AuthorCompany. ;) But it is so simple and easy to use most with basic knowledge will be able to easily adjust it to their needs, or use straight out of the box. thanks!

When using internal source, every words after the - (minus) sign is rendered as Author. Even it is written between "Double Quotes". I hope the developer fix this bug immediately.

Thank you

This is my second extension from this developer. The first was a paid extension, which also worked, with some support from the developer.

Simple to use - you can always see the instructions right in the module, so no clicking around everywhere.

I have used this for over a year now and just upgraded the site to 2.5. This is fast, simple, super reliable, configurable and makes displaying over 300 quotes randomly a breeze.
I wish all plugins and modules were this well done and easy to use. Recommend it highly.

I installed the tool and it works just as described on my site orgonite-brasil, however missing ability to configure formating font/class to use and the author separator configuration works only on external files, not on internally defined quotes.
Beside that the tool is great!
Thank you!

I used this extension but quite a few times the site where it is hosted do not work. I only have 3 local quotes. I liked their quotes though. Another problem is, it is hosting up my web connection. Because probably that host is too slow or not working all the time, joomla waits for the timer and then the local quotes shoots up. Sorry, but had to deinstall it for the time being but I loved the quotes though don't get me wrong..

I have been looking for something like this and it sifts the bill nicely! The only issue I have is the inability to stylize the quotes themselves using the "emergency" quotes. But the biggest issue I had was the quote / author separator. My client's company name has hyphens in it so it created some issues. But I resolved it by adding n-dashes in the company name. Maybe there should be some warning or reference to this issue?

I wanted a quick and easy random quote module and this one was up and running in no time. The module allows you to put in 9 "emergency" quotes for when the text file isnt found which was actually all I needed. It does allow for a text file with as many as you need. The only upgrade I can think of is to ajax the quotes so they change on the page, but as it stands, this is a great little module. Thanks and hat tip to the author!

Hi Omar, this is an excellent module. I was wondering to know how can we handle the formatting of quotes that are displayed on the page. for instance, to make them italic or bold, or change colour etc.

Would much appreciate if you could resolve this.

Perhaps because it is exactly what I wanted - maybe others were just to clever.
Whatever, this simple module is excellent and provides additional changing contents on my home page.
It is also useful for random announcements and other things - you can use your imagination.
Get it and try it!!

Salam, Omar you have made great extension, my suggestion is to make filters for some specific words(Adult Rated). We should have choice that we put some words, and quotes having these words should be restricted and not be displayed.

I had an issue with using 2 instances of this module on the same page. After contacting the developer, the issue was quickly resolved with a new version.
It is an easy to use module with great flexibility. I highly recommend it!

Hi.. I exactly love this extensions!
But there's a problem with the 1.5.5 version.
I have updated this module from 1.5.4 to 1.5.5, but my site went blank! So I rollback this module to the 1.5.4 version.
I'm using Joomla 1.5.23 version.
Would you please to fix this?

Thanks for your hardwork..
I really recommend this extension.

I needed a random quote extension for a new Joomla 1.6 site and after reading the comments I thought I'd try this one. It installed easily, only took minutes to configure, and works as described. Highly recommended!
