BH Book Recommendations


This plugin provides a simple shortcode and a widget which enables you to display book recommendations from RSS feeds on your website. So it’s basically a very simple RSS plugin.

The plugin is written primarily to work with the book recommendations feed from the Norwegian Deichman library.

The plugin uses the main Deichman RSS feed as default: But this can be changed by supplying a new URL as argument to the shortcode or added in the widget configuration.

The plugin is available in English, Norwegian bokmål and Norwegian nynorsk.

The development of this plugin is sponsored by Hordaland Fylkeskommune.


Download to wp-content/plugins/ and activate.

Insert into post or page with shortcode: [bhbook]. The shortcode uses the main Deichman RSS feed as default.

Customize the results by creating a custom feed at Copy the generated feed URL and use as argument to the shortcode like this: [bhbook url=].

As per version 0.1 the plugin has two different modes of displaying the feed, namely list and grid, where the former is default.

In order to change display to grid, use the display argument in the shortcode, for example like this: [bhbook display="grid"]. Images can be turned off in shortcode: [bhbook images="false"]. Set number of reviews with [bhbook number=4].

Additionally, there is also a widget available. Custom feed URL can be utilized as described above.
