QOTD Block released



I use squirrelMail for my webmail servers, and one plugin I liked was its "QOTD" for the login page...

I liked the plugin so much, I converted it into a GL phpBlock. Squatty was kind enough to let me load it up on his site.

What this does is cache a random quote from QOTD.Org and display it in a block. The cache defaults to 1 hour, which is reasonable enough to protect qotd.org from getting hammered by this Smile

This is still "beta" but has been working here and here for a while without any problems...


Where can I find documentation on how to properly add a block to gl? I'm trying to add a few currently and the installation directions are horrible. It just says ok now simply add the php block and your done...ok well how the heck do i add the php block from admin. And where is this qotd.dat file the paths are referring to? It didn't come with the installer.
