edshelf Widget

Adds a shortcode and template tag for embedding an edshelf widget onto your site.

  1. Download and unzip the plugin file.
  2. Upload the edshelf-widgets folder into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Go to the Plugins section of your WordPress admin and activate the "edshelf Widgets" plugin.
  4. Go to edshelf and view a collection you want to embed.
  5. Look for the Widget module at the bottom of the right column. In that module will be some code.
  6. Look for a 5 or 6-digit number in that code. That number is the ID number of the shelf.
  7. Go to the blog post or page on which you want to embed this shelf widget.
  8. Type in the following WordPress shortcode in the text editor: [edshelf-shelf-widget id="NNNN" height="YYY" format="FFFF"].
  9. The settings are: NNNN is the shelf ID you just found. YYY is the height of the widget in pixels. FFFF is the format of widget, where your choices are "grid" (the default setting), "list", or "compact".
  10. Or use the template tag edshelf_shelf_widget( $id, $height, '$format' ); if you are familiar with PHP.
  11. And you're done!
