Readinglist

Description

This plugin adds a readinglist where registered users can add and delete favorite articles. The list is accessible from any page on the website.

The readinglist is a handy tool for websites with many articles like blogs, newssites or e-learning websites. It helps regular users to easily add
articles to their list of favorites so they can read them at a later time. You can choose to display the ‘Add to readinglist’ button above each post,
or you can use the shortcode [readinglist_button] to display the button anywhere you need it. It also works in widgets, as long as the widget is inside the Loop or the page content.

In the plugin settings you can select the base color of the readinglist to match the style of your theme. The button uses the Bootstrap button class by default
but you can override the class used for the button in the settings. The settings also offers an option to include or exclude the readinglist button for
posttypes.

This saves selected articles to a Reading List, so a subscriber can come back to read them later. Key phrase is COME BACK. This is an amazing tool. It works perfectly!
