QuoteIt! version 3.1

I'm no longer able to put very much time into this mod, so I've set up a Subversion repository at to allow others to help out. You can use the login "vbuser" with the password "vbulletin" to edit files. If someone would like to completely take over the mod, please contact me.

QuoteIt! allows you to have a database of quotes integrated with your forum. Users submit quotes that can then be voted on by the other users, using your choice of two rating systems. The average installation will show a random quote on the forum home page, but you can include it on any vBulletin page or on your portal home page.

If you'd like to see a demo, go to


Random Quote
- a random quote can be shown on any vBulletin powered page
- the administrator can set a default rating threshold that quotes must meet before showing up as the random quote
- a new random quote can be chosen at a specific interval of time, to reduce server load

Quote Database
- quotes can be searched, filtered, and sorted by many different criteria
- quotes have a "context" field that can be turned on or off to include more information about the quote
- quotes can be embedded in posts with bbcode
- each post and private message now has a "Submit to Quotes" link that allows users to quote things said on your forum more easily

Quote Ratings System
- quotes can be rated either plus/minus or on a scale from 1 to 5
- quotes below a certain total score or average score can be filtered out

Quote Management
- quotes can either be automatically approved or moderated
- the quote moderation que is like the que for posts, enabling the moderation of several quotes at once
- usergroup permissions are used for adding, editing, deleting, rating and viewing quotes
- most actions use AJAX to avoid page reloads

Don't forget to click install!

Currently known problems are listed here.

The files needed to edit the included images are attached to this post.

This hack is based on QuoteIt! 1.2, originally by magnus. The "submit post" feature was inspired by an addon by CtrlAltDel.

Older versions (no longer in development): QuoteIt! 3 for vBulletin 3.5.x | QuoteIt! 2.03 for vBulletin 3.0.x

I don't think Capn Steve is going to update it, as per his posts. Hopefully someone else will take over this great mod (I've been using it for years, and had to stop because I'm using vb4...). A lot of my users have been wondering where it went.

This is a GREAT community-building mod because you use quotes from your own users. Can someone PLEASE resurrect it for VB4? I still have the data and quotes in my database.

If I could write code I'd be all over this but I don't have a clue.

Yes... this is re-usable code. Who wants to take on a new version to support v4.x?

Does anyone know how it would be possible to remove some queries this adds to forumhome? I checked and it apparently adds a massive FIVE queries to that page. Surely there's a way to trim that down, for anyone adept at coding.
