It is showing just above the QOTD.

Cheers
Never mind that, I fixed it.

Can someone point me to the right place to add the QOTD to the search results as well.
It only appears on the homepage currently

Invalid SQL:
SELECT * FROM quote ORDER BY id ASC;

MySQL-Fehler : Table 'blabla_bla.quote' doesn't exist

In deed, the prefix "vb_" before the "qoute" is missing.

Any idea how to fix this?

Same error to me too. Hope someone correct it.

I was planning to use this in a more creative way:
Not to display the quotes in forum home but in all errors the forum gives, in redirect page , or other forum notification to users making boring errors & redirect pages much more interesting hence forum experience more interesting.

Probably a nice expansion of this mode if u can add from admin cp the insertion of quotes in all errors and redirect pages.

I think it can be done by changing phrases.

Or you mean different error message for same error?

I'm using vb 3.8.1 patch lvl 1 , I've done the first 3 steps correcly but I can't find the options inside the admin CP (step 4) and the quotes aren't showing in my home even though I tried adding "$quote_manual_template" above "<!-- main -->" in every template.

I'm not very good with Php so I don't understand why it's not working since I did everything right (uploads via ftp in the right folders and importing the other xml). I can even see "Random Quotes" in the list of pluging in Admin CP.

Is there some way to help me? Thx in advance.

For anyone wondering how to figure out why quotes with apostrophes give you a SQL error...

Change a quote like this....

It's clobberin' time!
to

It\'s clobberin\' time!
and it will work just fine.

Thanks for the edit, it worked, I get rid of the error but quotes are not showing (it shows only Q#: "" - )

I am reffering to put quotes above all errors forum gives and not on index page as this is too boring. And the benefit to this is it will put a smile on ppl face when they should be not happy of receiving an error or a warning from forum.

I have the same problem. I'm getting around it temporarily with a direct link <www.myforum.com>/quotes.php

I would like for the quotes to show up on every page, not just the index page. Any idea how to make that work?
