Random Quotes in Sidebar

    I would like to place a Random Quote block in my sidebar and am clueless as to how to go about it.
    One XF member had created a RQ module for Jaxel's portal, and was (I thought) trying to figure out how to place it in the sidebar. But he's since left XenForo (according to his profile).

    Any ideas on how to go about this?

    Did you tried the way he explained in that post ?

    Of course I did. :) And it doesn't work. That's why I've posted this.

    He added that he was going to test it in his sidebar and figure it out.
    He's left XF since then.

    Ut oh I just noticed that I don't have the header on that block. What'd I do wrong?

    Just add a header to the random_quote template if you want one:

    You will need another div though:

    Code:
    <div class="section">
    <div class="secondaryContent">
    <h3>Random Quote</h3>
    <div class="bqstart">&#8220;</div>
    <div class="quotes bq" style="padding-top: 10px; padding-right: 5px;"></div>
    <div class="bqend">&#8221;</div>
    </div>
    </div>

    But it doesn't look like the other modules on the sidebar. :(

    That's due to your Flexile theme - I don't know how the templates work in that style so you will have to check with Erik.

    @Brogan! aslında jaxel' in yaptığı portal için çok kullanışlı modules var. Bunları tek tek forum için de yapabilirsek harika olurdu bence >.< en son media videoları sidebar da göstermek gibi :D

    Quick translation - shenmuee is saying that Jaxel created some useful modules for the portal and it would be good if I explained how to do each one for a standard sidebar, the latest media one for example.

    I'll have to look and see what else is available as a module but I have a feeling the latest media will only work with the relevant add-on?
