Books You’ve Read

Description

It’s important to write about what you’ve read. For a long time I’ve been meaning to write blog posts for all of the books that I’ve read recently but found that I got lost when it came time to begin the process. So I created a plugin that makes it easy to keep track! Basically, it’s a good-looking way to write about the books you’ve read and display them on your website. I utilize some basic prompts to help you extract the meaningful parts of the book and the plugin then creates a blog post entry from this information. Presently the prompts are:
-Date Finished
-Book Summary
-What Did You Learn from the Book?
-Any Final Thoughts?

If you have any recommendations for other prompts to use please let me know at me@trevorelwell.com and I’d be happy to consider them!

Installation

Installation of Books You’ve Read is simple. The shortcode utilized is [byr_show_all_books] which you can put onto any of your pages or posts. Here’s some more installation info:

  1. Upload the byr folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place <?php do_action('byr_show_all_books'); ?> in your templates or place [byr_show_all_books] in a post or a page
  4. Begin writing about the books that you’ve read!

Please keep in mind that books need a featured image in order to properly show up on the list of all books. I recommend using a high-quality image of the cover of the book but you can be as creative as you’d like.
