Here's an easy way to create a random quotes feature. Try it out, here:
The best quote yet...
Here's how you make it work. Set up a page called main.quotes with a list of quotes in info var format:
1: My first quote!
2: Here's another interesting quote
3: The best quote yet...
Now to generate a random quote just use the info function, like this:
[(info random page=main.quotes)]
Note that you can also pull in more than one random quote using [(info random page=extend.plugins.quote count=2)] and you can use fmt or template parameters to modify your output, making this feature quite powerful. It does require BoltWire 4.24.
