blogquotes version b02.1

New release of blogquotes is out, with the biggest change being a switch from exclusive reliance on google accounts for login to leveraging a cool service at http://www.janrain.com/ that gives me a simple way of integrating authentication from a bunch of different sources. So you no longer need to be a google user to use blogquotes!  


Note that if you were previously using google to login this should just work albeit with a slightly different UI. And if you find other methods to be more preferable they should also "just work" provided that you use the same email address for those services. Note the logout button at the top of the page which will tell you what email or ID you've logged in with. So for example if I login with facebook all my old quotes are there, but if I login with blogger which doesn't use the same email address I get nothing and am essentially starting fresh. 

enhancement : support for Facebook, Google, Windows Live ID (includes hotmail), Blogger, Wordpress and LiveJournal logins  (have yet to validate Wordpress + LiveJournal) 
bugfix : javascript remote inclusion could still barf on some unicode, added clientside utf-8 handling

In the background I've also made a number of restructuring changes to the code which should help me release changes faster.  


Please leave comments on this post if you are having trouble getting access or for some reason can't see the quotes you've already entered. (no data has been deleted!)

  1. Where do I find the link to enable me to edit older quotes?
    I looked at my Java source code, but there are no quotes listed inside the code.

    My site is billbotex.blogspot.com

  2. Login here to access/edit your old quotes. I changed the login recently to be based on other services to avoid having to define yet another password, but to work you need to login using a service linked to the same email address you used when first accessing blogquotes. Let me know if you can't login.

  4. hi,

    First of all, thanks a lot for your service :)

    I've been using blogquotes on my blog succesfully for over 2 years now. I really enjoy the quotes :)

    I'm writing for some free support, if possible :)

    I can login with the new system but I don't see my old quotes. I'm pretty sure I use the same email adress to login, being marcdemesel@gmail.com

    Can you find my old account with plenty of quotes? I'm sure it is still there as the quotes still appear on my blog. Is there a way I could acces this account with your new login system?

  5. I am having the same problem as Marc, but I also agree with him in thanking you for your service!

    In addition to Marc's problem of not seeing all the old quotes I have entered in the past, an additional problem on my blog seems to be that the quotes that come up on reloading, seems to be limited to only the last (most recent) 4 or 5 quotes that I entered. It seems not to choose the older VISIBLE quotes at the new Quote Manager location, and of course does not see the older quotes, which I hope are not lost. Is there an update process that I have to apply to your application on my blog?
    Thanks for the help!

  6. Hello, we are using your random quote since 2010 in different blogs and we are very glad with this app. Is it possible in future versions to include a small picture of the author of the quote as an optional field in the quote managment? Thanks a lot www.carnivorosanonimos.com
