Enhanced Bibliplug creates a central repository for researchers to organize and display their academic work either individually or in a collaborative environment. This plugin is designed to synchronize with Zotero accounts.
Key features include:
- database schema for storing bibliographical references.
- administration pages to manage the references.
- short code for easy retrieval of references based on author, year, and publication type.
- the ability to connect and synchronize with Zotero accounts.
- a custom Author page template to display user’s academic title, affiliation, bio, and CV content such as publications and presentations.
- short code for listing all users of the site.
- the ability to group and retrieve references based on custom categories and tags.
Reference short codes
References can be displayed on any post/page using short code bibliplug.
[bibliplug id=2] displays a single reference. [bibliplug last_name='Smith'] displays references by author/editor last name. [bibliplug first_name='John'] displays references by author/editor first name. [bibliplug type='book'] displays all books. [bibliplug category='chapter7'] displays all references under category chapter7. [bibliplug tag='biology'] displays all references with tag biology. [bibliplug year='2008'] displays all references published in 2008. [bibliplug format='full'] displays references with abstracts. Default is 'normal'. [bibliplug keywords='biology, genome'] displays references with any given keywords. [bibliplug order_by='last_name, year-, title'] displays references first ordered by first author's last name, then by publish
year in descending order, then by title. You can also sort by first_name (first author’s first name), date (publication date),
and type (publication type). By default, text fields are sorted alphabatically from A-Z, dates are sorted from oldest to newest,
and numbers are sorted from small to big. To invert the sorting order of a field, add “-” at the end of the field name to indicate
that the field should be sorted in descending order.
You can mix-match any arguments except:
- If id is used, other arguments are ignored.
- If category is used, tag is ignored.
Other than types shown in the drop down box when editing a reference, there are two super types you can use.
- Publication => any type that’s not presentation or conference paper.
- Presentation => presentation and conference paper.
All references are shown in Chicago Style Author-Date System.
Author profile short codes
Author list can be displayed on any post/page using short code bibliplug_authors.
[bibliplug_authors id=2] display a single user by its user id. [bibliplug_authors format='profile'] displays all users with user info and bio. [bibliplug_authors format='list'] displays all users with user info. [bibliplug_authors format='mini'] displays all users with profile pictures.
You can use id and format in the same short code instance.
