This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



BiblioPress automatically publishes your reviews from libraries running Bibliocommons. The plugin runs daily, gathering your
new reviews and ratings, and posts them onto your blog. The posts include your rating as well as the cover art for the book or
movie reviewed.


  • Sample review. Note that the appearance of your reviews will depend on your theme.
  • BiblioPress configuration page. Each user has their own configuration page, and can update the stuff by themselves.


There are two methods to install BiblioPress to your WordPress installation. You can either uncompress the zip file and upload it
to the wp-content/plugins/, or you can install it using the Plugins/Add New menu.

After installing, add your Bibliocommons credentials to the BiblioPress settings page. You can find detailed instructions at
the author’s plugin page.


To ask a question, see the author’s plugin page.

How do I know if my library is a Bibliocommons library?

Go to your library’s catalogue, and scroll down to the bottom of the page. If your library’s catalogue is managed by Bibliocommons,
there should be a line of text similar to Powered by BiblioCommons, with the financial support of Knowledge Ontario.
