Installing the Widget

  1. Unzip the widget archive.
  2. Upload the folder idquotes to the /wp-content/plugins directory.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  4. Add the shortcode [id_popular_quotes] to the content or in any widget to display it.


My template doesn’t allow for widgets in the header. How can I add this?

There are many good resources available online that discuss this very thing. Search for ‘WordPress add a template widget area’ to see several. Be warned this will require some code editing in your template files. If you’re not comfortable with this consider hiring a web designer to do this.
