Mooberry Book Manager

Mooberry Book Manager | Mooberry Dreams

Description

Mooberry Book Manager is an easy-to-use system for authors to add books to their WordPress websites.

No coding is necessary to use Mooberry Book Manager. Adding books is as easy as filling out a form. Include as much or as little information as you want, including the book cover, links to purchase the book, reviews of the book, an excerpt, and more.

Each book can be linked to as many book store retailers to you want. You can even use your affiliate links!

Mooberry Book Manager will create a page for each book, ensuring a consistent look on all of your pages.

Organize your book into grids with just a few clicks. Grids can include all of your books or a selection of books, and you choose how they are ordered. You can create multiple grids; for example, an “Available Now” page and a “Coming Soon” page. Grids update automatically when you edit or add books. Set it and forget it!

Feature books on your sidebar with four options:

  • A random book

  • The newest book

  • A book that’s coming soon

  • A specific book

Mooberry Book Manager works with your chosen theme to provide a consistent look throughout your website.

Requires WordPress 3.8 and Javascript.

Mooberry Book Manager can be translated into other languages! See Other Notes for more information.

Getting Started with Mooberry Book Manager

After installing and activating Mooberry Book Manager, you’ll now have a Books menu. Use that to add your books to your website.

In order for your books to appear on your website, you need to add a Book Grid and/or a Widget.

To Add a Book Grid:

  • Go to Book Grids -> Add New

  • Give the Book Grid a name to help you remember what kind of grid it is

  • Choose the books, grouping, and sort order

  • Save the grid.

  • On any page, blog post, etc. on the text editor will be a button that says Add Book Grid. Click that and select a book grid.

  • Save your page and view it. Click on any book to see the details of the book.

To Add a Widget:

  • Go to Appearance -> Widget

  • Drag the Mooberry Book Manager Book Widget to the Widget Area of your choice

  • Choose the book to display

  • Save the widget and view your website. Click on the book cover to get the details of the book.

Multi-Site Compatibility

  • Versions 2.4.4 and earlier work with WordPress Multi-Site if you don’t use Network Activation. If each blog activates Mooberry Book Manager themselves, it should work.

  • Versions 3.0 – 3.0.4 do not work with WordPress Multi-Site in any way.

  • Versions 3.1 and above work with WordPress Multi-Site both with and without Network Activation.

Caching Plugins Compatibility

Versions 2.4.4 and earlier should work with caching plugins as-is. If your book pages or book grids aren’t refreshing when you add/update a book, you may need to manually clear your cache.

Versions 3.0 – 3.0.4 do not work with W3C Total Cache. An error will be thrown. These versions work okay with WP Super Cache.

Versions 3.1 and above work with both W3C Total Cache and WP Super Cache with the following notes:

  • W3C Total Cache – You must turn on Object Caching in W3C Total Cache’s settings for Mooberry Book Manager data to be cached. Book data cache is automatically cleared when a book is updated, added, or deleted so your book pages and grids should stay up-to-date.

  • WP Super Cache – When a book is updated, added, or deleted, the cache for the entire site is cleared. Unfortunately, WP Super Cache does not seem to have an option for selectively clearing some cache and not all of it.

  • Use another caching plugin? If you are having problems using it with Mooberry Book Manager, please contact us and let us know what plugin you are using and what the issue is.
