Got this handy component and module up and running very quickly. For those having problems with getting quotes to show from the database make sure you do the following:
1) Create categories
2) List quotes under the categories
3) (If using Module to display) Select module position and set parameters to display category.
4) When you go into a quote to edit it, the bottom radio button called Publish automatically is set to 'no' - even if the quote was previously published. So every time you edit a quote, before saving make sure you click Yes to publish at the bottom of the quote or is will be set to unpublished and won't show up.
Thank You for both your comments and directions. The point about the published state has been addressed. Please download the new version 1.5.2. It will save your published state after editing. The new module version 1.5 also has many improvements
