With this plugin you can put on your page a random quotation from predefinied list. I use it in my wiki's header section :)

Predefined list is a wiki page with Your favourite golden thoughts in specific format. Every quotation should be put in single line in following format:


  • Copy quotation.jar(info) into your wiki's WEB-INF/lib.
  • (Optional) Add the package name of the Quotation Plugin (pl.tsz.jspwiki.plugin) to the jspwiki.plugin.searchPath in your WEB-INF/ If you don't do that, you have to prefix the plugin name with its package name when using it in your page.
  • Restart your servlet engine.

Very nice plugin! Please add a note that the package name is pl.tsz.jspwiki.plugin This should either be used in the plugin invocation or added to the searchPath property.
