Quick Recommend

Description

Quick Recommend is a simple plugin for sharing book, movie, music and other recommendations on your blog. If these recommendations are not the primary focus of your blog, Quick Recommend is for you. Simply add a new Recommendation in the admin screen and then attach it to a post for it to show after your main post text.

The plugin adds the Recommendation custom post type and the associated custom taxonomy Recommendation Type. QRec relies on Advance Custom Fields, which is included in the plugin package.

Quick Recommend offers control over how your recommendations appear on the front end, as well as options to show recommendations in search results and enable a Recommendations Archive.

This is just the first version of Quick Recommend! If you have any ideas for new features, let us know, or help us develop on GitHub.

Can I attach one Recommendation to multiple posts?

Yes! Recommendations can be attached to as many posts as you want, but each post can only have one Recommendation.

What features are you planning to add?

For now, just improvements to existing features. For example, right now you can only select one Recommendation per post. In coming revisions I will add the option to select more than one Recommendation, and have a random one display at a time.
