Manage Quotes

The Quotes feature of ThoughtFarmer allows users to add their favourite quotes to share with others on the ThoughtFarmer homepage. When enabled, user-added quotes will show on the left hand side of the homepage just below the RSS feeds (if enabled). Every page refresh on the homepage will present a new randomly selected quote.
