My 2 cents: Whether an extension is in the CDB says nothing about its quality. It is more important to read the support topics for it. Better to avoid authors who do not answer support questions themselves, who do not update their stuff, and who do not fix bugs for years.

Is it possible to give each user the choice of whether to index it or not?

I installed the quote ext on my local dev copy of the board and it works, but it doesn't quite function as I'd want.

It creates a whole new block just for the quote, and adds loads of extra stuff I don't want, like a dedicated quote page.

I was thinking I'd just replace the "board index" link on the homepage with the quote, something like this:

It's used to display song lyric snippets from the band the forum is dedicated to, so attribution isn't required (as it's obvious!) and neither is the standalone "quotes" page.

Any ideas how I change the front end of how this works?

Presumably I need it to not inject that template chunk, but instead pull out the quote value in one of the pre-existing templates...?

I'm using the Milk theme from PlanetStyles btw.
