Plugin / Media Libraries

Christopher Roussel



WARNING: This project is still in development and is not quite ready for production use. Please install at your own risk.

With Media Libraries, you can manage multiple library shelves of your current media, keeping track of when you’ve last used them, and how often you have used them. If you wish to use the same item on different shelves (e.g. a book you once read for school/work but also once read separately for fun), this is also possible. Users can also provide their own reviews, and library admins can flag reviews as official site reviews to differentiate them from other reviews.

Media Libraries is a complete rewrite of the Now Reading series of plugins (Rob Miller’s Now Reading plugin, Ben Gunnink’s Now Reading Reloaded plugin, and Zack Ajmal’s Now Watching plugin). Users with WordPress 2.6 and below should either upgrade or use Rob Miiller’s original plugin. Users with WordPress 2.6 – 2.9 should use the Now Reading Reloaded plugin.

Requirements: PHP5 with SimpleXML and SOAP libraries. In very few cases will these not be met automatically.

Template Files

The templates folder of the Amazon Media Libraries plugin contains a default set of templates (based on TwentyEleven) for displaying your library pages. These are hacked into the template process, meant to be overridden by copying them into a template folder and modifying them.
