  • I’m about to transition to Canvas from The Journal and I want to display on online bookshelf to showcase author’s who contribute articles to my site. Is there a plugin which will allow me to upload book covers, bio’s of the author’s and where to buy their works?

    I don’t want to sell their books just allow my readers to go to Amazon and other sites to do that.

    For a point of comparison what I am attempting to do is similar to POLITICO and other sites. I apologize for the link to their site but its easier to show you than fully describe it.

    http://www.politico.com/bookshelf/

    Any help would be great.

  • You could maybe use this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sem-author-image/ which adds the author image functionality. Then you just need to put the bio and where to buy their works in the author description. Also see http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/the_author_meta

    Thank you for the response. It seems that plugin hasn’t been updated in a while. Essentially I want to be able to upload a book jacket, put the info in their and post it. Will I be able to do so by creating products with the Canvas theme? There’s a book theme in the pipeline from what I understand but my site is primarily articles and blog posts about politics and other things.

    You should probably ask the Canvas theme developer about modifying the theme.

    To get the specific functionality you will almost certainly have to modify the theme or create a plugin by editing PHP code.
