# QuotesGenerator
# A Jekyll plugin to generate a quotes/index.html page based on a Tumblr's
# account.
#
# You need a quotes.json file inside a SITE_ROOT/_data/ directory to use this
# plugin. It must use the same format as Tumblr's API v2.
#
# Available _config.yml settings:
# - text_size_limit: Maximum size of a used quote. Default to 1000.
# - tumblr_account: Used to link to your account.
# - tumblr_quotes_layout: Layout used.
#

Am I going insane or have you got the source of your plugin twice in this file? Thanks for the writeup on your blog and putting the code up!
