Example ImplementationSome time ago, I created a WordPress plugin that displays an inspirational quote on your blog’s sidebar. It includes over 125 quotes that will either rotate randomly on each page load, or update once a day (your choice).


  • Simplicity – No complex installation or settings; just install the plugin, add the widget to your sidebar and go – it’s that simple.
  • Quality Quotes – I hand-selected about 125 of my favorite inspirational/motivational quotes and more are added with each update.
  • 2 Display Options – Choose to update the quote daily or have it select a random quote on each page view.

Download from the WordPress Plugin Directory



  1. Download the files above and upload inspirationalquotes.php to the /wp-content/plugins/directory [Or simply go to your WP dashboard > plugins and search for “inspirational quotes” to install automatically]
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in your WordPress dashboard
  3. Go to Appearance > Widgets and drag ‘Daily Inspiration’ to your sidebar
  4. Update the settings in the widget: Title, When to Update, etc
