Tagline Rotator Plugin for WordPress

The Tagline Rotator plugin does pretty much what it sounds like it would do: it randomly selects a tagline (that’s the description of your blog beneath the title) from a list of user-compiled taglines, then displays it within your blog. It offers a couple of advantages over some of the other similar plugins I found, most importantly that it uses the mySQL database within WordPress, and therefore should not slow down page loads at all.

Installation

  1. Download the plugin and unzip it.
  2. Copy the tagline_rotator.php file to the plugins directory of your WordPress install.
  3. Activate the plugin in the Plugins menu within your admin pages. Taglines can be added through Settings -> Tagline Rotator.

Known Bugs/Limitations
Of course, there are a couple of bugs/limitations that you should know about.

  • You must choose ‘Save Changes’ to commit any deletions or additions to the tagline database. Hopefully, this will soon be automated
  • The plugin currently does not delete the tables it creates upon de-activation (that way you don’t lose your taglines). However, if you manually delete the table, WordPress will throw an error upon re-activation of the plugin. The easiest way to fix this is to change the option ‘tagline_tables’ in wp_options to be ‘false’ NB: If you’re not comfortable manually editing your mySQL database, don’t worry. The table will just sit there and work if you re-activate the plugin.
  • It still won’t do the dishes.

Updates

Version 1.2 – 4-18-2010 – Updated UI in Admin Settings to put Save button and add functionality at the top.

Version 1.1 – 12-31-2009 – Plugin database table is now compliant with WordPress database prefix (i.e. it will use the database prefix set by WP, not the previous wp_tagline_rotator). This should make it WPMU compatible as well, although this is still untested. Upgrading automatically through WordPress from a previous version will also rename the database table to use the correct prefix.

Version 1.0 – 3-16-2009 – Version 0.4b has been tested out a bit, and this plugin does what it sets out to do. As a result, it’s being re-tagged as version 1.0.

Version 0.4b - 3-13-2009 – Ensures compatibility with themes using either bloginfo() or get_bloginfo() to display tagline information. Here is the download: Tagline Rotator Plugin (BETA)

Version 0.3b - 7-31-2008 – Allows for editing of existing taglines without deleting and re-adding them. Please report bugs or errors in the comment area.

Version 0.2 – 7-26-2008 – Fixes an issue where double quotes in a tagline prevent it from being deleted. Thanks to Thorsten for pointing out this bug.

As always, please keep in mind that this is open-source software, so I welcome any contributions or suggestions you might have. Please leave a comment with any feedback or problems you had installing or using the plugin. Feature requests are also welcome, as are over-the-top compliments.

Drew (Jul 14, 2008)

Thanks for this plugin! Just a quick question: now that i've got it installed what should I do with the Tagline field under Settings -> General? Empty it? If something is filled in there, will it be rotated or ignored?

Vasken (Jul 14, 2008)

@Drew,

Good question. The Tagline field is ignored by the plugin. I figured that was the best way to go, since it won't leave people without a tagline if they uninstall the plugin. At some point in the future, I hope that the tagline that's already set for the blog will automatically show up in the plugin as the first entry, but for now you'd have to enter it again if you want it in the rotation.

Thanks for downloading the plugin! Please let me know if you run into any problems or have any requests for new features.

@Lionfire,

It should just be a matter of wrapping the function that adds the filter (the main part that makes the plugin work) in the mfunc tags that wp-cache provides to include dynamic content. However, that's not working for me right now. I can tell you that this isn't the first plugin that's having this problem, though–someone using the wp-quotes plugin had the same issue. I'll work on it and post here (and email you) when I figure it out.

Hi.

I can't delete taglines with a quote.

Is this problem/bug known?

@thorsten,

Thanks for reporting that…I hadn't tried any quotes with quote marks in my testing. I will figure it out as soon as possible and email you back directly as well as posting on this comment list.

Vasken (Jul 31, 2008)

The issue with quotes is solved. Also, there was a version of the plugin available for about a day with an error that affects the visual editor in WordPress. If you are experiencing this error, please re-download the plugin.

How do you set up where the taglines are shown. I do not see any instructions for this. I am a NOOB.

Vasken (Aug 19, 2008)

@Raymond,

If you're running WordPress 2.5 or later, just look for the Settings link towards the top right of your Admin panel interface. In there, one of the headings is "Tagline Rotator" and you can add or remove taglines there.

Vasken (Oct 22, 2008)

@Kugelblitz,

Unfortunately, the plugin is trying to create the database every time that you install it. Since you are using only one database, it is crashing because the database already exists. You should really not be sharing a database among three installs because of things like this, but you could delete the tables for the plugin manually each time before you switch on the plugin on each blog. Then the tables will be re-created by each blog and you can delete and activate, etc. Of course, all of your taglines will be shared, as there is only one database of taglines for all three blogs.

esck (Nov 13, 2008)

Hello Vasken I want to know if this feature could be doable?

I want that know if the taglines could be sent as comments in a wordpress page? so they can be moderated.

What do you think? I would love that feature!

j (Dec 30, 2008)

love it! exactly what I wanted. Thanks!

Randy (Mar 07, 2009)

Hey dude, installed this and added some taglines but none of them are showing up. The plugin is activated. If I change the tagline under the general settings it still changes on the site, so it isn't being 'ignored' like you reference above. I'm running WP 2.71 with the Atahualpa theme. Is there anything special I need to do? Any code I need to reference somewhere or something? Hopefully I can get it working since it's exactly what I need. :)

Thank you.

Sean (Mar 13, 2009)

@Randy: Atahualpa uses get_bloginfo() instead of the older bloginfo() function to load the tagline. I've been working on a workaround for the past few days but haven't gotten anything useful. It SHOULD be possible to modify Atahualpa's bfa_header_config.php to make it work.

liuzhongshu (Apr 16, 2009)

I found this plugin is very useful for me, Thanks.

And I noticed that I can not set tagline use Chinese character, It is caused by the Mysql characater encoding. I think you should create the table with UTF8 Collation.

Vasken (Apr 17, 2009)

@liuzhongshu,

I will make the change and email you as soon as it's available.

Karen Mason (Apr 22, 2009)

Great plugin. I have an autocompleter set to my taglines so it would fail my site. But great plugin.

Geoffrey (Jun 11, 2009)

As Kugelblitz notes, the plugin creates its own table in the database. This means it will not work with WordPress MU. Otherwise a very cool plugin.

ashutoshjha (Oct 25, 2009)

really great plugin to use thanks

Michael (Dec 29, 2009)

Thanks for this great plugin, I can see a potential issue in that the table created in the db is given the name "wp_tagline_rotator" ignoring the custom table prefix set up in wp-config. Can this be changed when the plugin is next updated?

Vasken (Dec 31, 2009)

@Geoffrey @Kugelblitz I'm pleased to announce that Version 1.1 now uses the prefix specified within WordPress for the database table, so it should be WPMU compatible. If you upgrade using the automated upgrade function in WordPress from a previous version, it will rename the table for you to comply with your prefix structure.

Eric J. (Dec 31, 2009)

Is there a way to make a tagline display using html? I wanted to include a link in a couple of taglines, but the html code doesn't do anything.

Vasken (Dec 31, 2009)

Hmm, I hadn't tried that. I've got some time over the next couple of days–I will look into incorporating that into a new version and email you when I have it.

Dear Vasken,

Sorry to be so basic.

I understand the technical side of the plugin but not sure about the purpose.

Is there any benefit on the SEO side?

Thank you !

Roger

Vasken (Feb 13, 2010)

Hi Roger,

For me, it was so that I could give people that visited my site a couple of different 'looks' while they surfed the various posts. I'm not an SEO expert, but I would imagine that the only benefit would be that the page would be different every time a search engine crawled it. This would be significant, because it would mean that the crawlers would visit more frequently to check out the 'new' content, but I imagine the big guys like Google and Bing have some sort of algorithm that makes small changes like a tagline less significant indicators of new content on a site.

It certainly couldn't hurt your SEO, unless you're using your tagline to include keywords related to your content. The last time I viewed my homepage the quote was 'the Dude abides,' so that's certainly not what I'm going for. If it was more like "Apple and WordPress tips with the occasional review," then swapping taglines might de-emphasize that message.

I hope that helps….

CeltJono (Jun 18, 2010)

I put in a few taglines and they work alright except for this one issue. About 90% of the time what shows at the top of a browser (or the title of a tab) isn't the one that is in my header tagline. For example I have "Green Lantern for President" and "Rogues do it from Behind" as some of my tags.

At the top of the browser it shows "Green Lantern from President" but under CeltJono.com in my header it shows "Rogues do it from Behind."

I just upgraded to 3.0, so maybe this is the issue? A small bug fix that altered a code? Anyways, let me know what to do to fix it please ^_^

John F Howes (Jul 04, 2010)

the 7/4/10 version caused two taglines to show at once so i reverted back for now. Love your plugin.

3nd3r (Jul 04, 2010)

I've just updated to 1.3 and now it shows 2 taglines with no spaces between them, when in 1.2 version it only shows one (as it must normally do)…

How can I avoid this?

Je3nYu5 (Jul 05, 2010)

I'm having the exact same problem as CeltJono. Any idea on how to fix it?

Vasken (Jul 05, 2010)

Wow! Thanks all for the responses. I must've had one too many barbeque products yesterday before coding :)

The problem was that the plugin was appending the original tagline to the random one, and also was appending a random tagline in the admin section under Settings->General when the plugin was first loaded. You can fix this immediately by deleting and saving a blank original tagline (which will cause one to magically reappear in the admin field, but display correctly on the front page). Version 1.4 should be available in a couple of hours, and includes a more permanent fix that 1) disables the filter on all admin pages, so your default tagline won't change mysteriously and 2) hides the original tagline from displaying, which is how the plugin used to function. You should now be able to both see the tagline in your header AND not have two taglines on your main page. Thanks again for all the feedback!

John F Howes (Jul 05, 2010)

Thanks for the quick fix. All is well with version 1.4

The error message: Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/freefrin/public_html/wp-content/plugins/tagline-rotator/tagline-rotator.php on line 148

Please help. I love this plugin. One of my favorites…

Vasken (Jul 10, 2010)

Hi Erica,

That error is usually caused by the table in the mySQL database being manually deleted. If you did delete the table, the easiest way to fix this is to go into the mySQL database, find the wp_options table, search for 'tagline_tables' and change the option from 'true' to 'false'

That should cause the plugin to recreate the database on activation. If you didn't delete the table, please let me know and I'll try and troubleshoot further.

KsbjA (Jul 15, 2010)

I was waiting for the update for WP 3.0 ever since the first beta! Thanks for updating!

By the way, is there a way to make the tagline in the window title be the same as in my page?

Vasken (Jul 17, 2010)

There should be. In order to get the tagline to display in the title at all, I kind of hacked something together, so I'll look into this for the next release.

The Meerkat (Jul 18, 2010)

2) Are you using the automatic installer?

3) If you are doing an automatic install, does it throw the error when you install the plugin, or when you click "Activate"?

McD (Dec 24, 2010)

Can you tell me where all of my taglines are kept/stored? I deactivated the plugin and now it does a "QUERY FAIL" every time I try to re-activate it. Thanks!

vaskenhauri (Dec 24, 2010)

@McD,

The tagline table will be called something like *prefix*tagline_rotator, so on a default install it would be wp_tagline_rotator

It sounds like you\’re getting an error that reads \”The query failed.\” This is triggered when the plugin is updated (or re-activated) and doesn\’t find an option called tagline_db_version, which was first set in version 1.1 of the plugin. If it doesn\’t find this option, it will try and rename the database to be more compliant with WordPress MU installations (basically it goes from always calling the table wp_tagline_rotator to using whatever prefix is set for your blog). If that query fails (because your table is already renamed), it will output the \’query failed\’ error.

If you\’re getting an error like \’could not create tagline tables,\’ then you\’ll need to change the tagline_tables option in your wp_options table to \’true\’ so the plugin doesn\’t try to create the table again. If you\’ve got a backup of your taglines, you can completely remove all traces of the plugin by deleting the tagline_tables option, the tagline_db_version option, and the wp_tagline_rotator table. If you activate from there, you should have a brand-new install.

It\’s worth noting this is the time of year when I have a little time off work and usually update the plugin. It\’s going to probably get a major overhaul over the next couple of days, to make it a lot more efficient and to do some better error-checking, so if you\’d be interested in testing a beta of that just let me know and I\’ll send it over as soon as it\’s ready.

This plugin has been working fine for months until I just tried to update to 2.2. I performed an automatic update and received this eror message:

Any ideas???

vaskenhauri (Dec 29, 2010)

@Josh,

Line 34 is where the __construct() statement is in the plugin\’s main class. It sounds like that error might be related to PHP4, which can\’t handle the __construct() method. If your web host will let you upgrade to PHP5, that\’s probably the easiest and best fix, although and easy solution would also be to just put v1.4 of the plugin back in, as it seems to be compatible with PHP4.

If you\’re running PHP5, or you\’re not sure what version is running, let me know (also what hosting provider you\’re running on) and I can help troubleshoot further.

Josh (Dec 29, 2010)

Lisa Risager (Apr 07, 2011)

Works great and now I'm greedy… what would it take to make it work on a WordPress network (multisites)?

vaskenhauri (Apr 07, 2011)

@Lisa, It should work right out of the box. You can either activate it on a per-site basis, then add the taglines in that site's dashboard as you normally would (recommended), or go into your Network Admin panel and Network Activate the plugin. I wouldn't do the latter, because I'm pretty sure then every site will be looking for taglines from the Settings->Tagline Rotator menu, so you might get blank taglines if there isn't a tagline manually set for each site.

I'd love to know whether this works for you. If it doesn't, please let me know what sort of errors you're seeing, and what version of WP you're using. Thanks!

I had the same question – in fact, I was wondering if there was a way to have the plugin ONLY display the tagline in the blog, and not in the window title. Is it a matter of just commenting out a line or two in the plugin file? If not, no worries. Might the next release possibly make it an option to include the tagline in the window title?Great plugin, thanks for your work on it!

InstaDerek (Jun 12, 2011)

Here goes nothing… my situation was similar to the one Erica M had, except that I lost ALL my taglines. :-( . Worse yet, I have tried and failed to reproduce the error message, so I don’t know if we’re going to be able to figure it out. What happened was that I mistakenly changed my blog to the Twenty Ten theme. I changed it back immediately, but after I did I got an error message similar to Erica’s, i.e. [ something? ] is not a valid MySQL result [ something? ] in [path...] /wp-content/plugins/tagline-rotator/tagline-rotator.php on line 127 [?] I THINK it was line 127, but I don’t know for sure. I do know that the same error message was on the plugin’s options page, above the Delete Taglines section (which by then showed no taglines to delete).I remembered what you wrote on the WP Plugin Directory about possibly needing to deactivate and reactivate the plugin on WP 3.0 or higher, so I did that. When I re-activated it the error message was gone, but all my taglines were still gone too. I put one in just to see if it would show up, which it did. Now I think that may have been a mistake, because then I came here and read what you said about going into the options table in the blog database. I went to the db with PHPMyAdmin, and the tagline_rotator_taglines table was there but all it showed was the one tagline I had just put back in after re-activating.There aren’t any db backups recent enough to have my taglines in them, so I’m resigned to trying to remember them and type them back in. I just thought I should let you know what happened, in case there’s anything to be learned from it for future use/development of the plugin. Thanks for making it, I really like it despite this setback.

Thanks for reporting this! I’ll take a look at the theme and see how it’s loading the blog description, then let you know.

Ed (Jun 20, 2012)

Hi – Installed your rotator and it looks good. Does exactly what I want it to so thank you.

However, I have two problems in that it changes the title of my home page to one of the quotes that I have put in. I’m not a coder but could you suggest an easy answer to this small issue?

The other issue is aesthetic – is there any way to prevent the quotes that I’ve put in going onto three lines, rather than just remaining on two?

Cheers Ed

Vasken (Jun 28, 2012)

Hi Ed,

It sounds like the title of your home page is actually using the description field (which is what my plugin filters to rotate the taglines). If you let me know what theme you’re using, I’d be happy to take a look and tell you what code needs to be changed so that the rotated taglines don’t appear in the title area. As to the 3-line issue, that’s being determined by the CSS on the page most likely–in other words, the container for the tagline is only so wide, so it’s wrapping the text at that point. Similarly to the title issue, if you let me know where the theme is currently running, I can probably give you some pointers on the CSS you’ll need to change to make your tagline wider (and appear on 2 lines instead of 3).

I love this plugin! Many Thanks. However, it repeats entries 2-3 times on the page listing all of my entered taglines. I can delete the repeated entries, but they show up again eventually. Any idea what may be causing this?

thanks again!

Noticing an apparent bug with the Twenty Thirteen theme and WP 3.6 – the page title and header area taglines are out of sync, as if they are being selected (at random) separately. So I’ll have one headline in the page title, a different one in the header area (except when they randomly align by chance, of course).

This is exactly what I’m looking for… but it isn’t working for me at all. I’m running WP vers 3.7. I did have it working about a week or two ago though. Maybe 3.7 killed it somehow? Any updates coming, or suggestions?

Thanks!
