Support » Plugin: OpenBook Book Data » OpenBook for WordPress. How about a full-featured library? Kickstart it?

    OpenBook is a WordPress plugin that allows people to show rich book data on their WordPress sites. First released in 2008, it has seen three major version updates and 18000 downloads. I know there is a minor bug with displaying the OpenBook button after the WordPress 3.9 upgrade and I will fix it soon. It has got me thinking. I have had several inquiries over the years for new features. In my view, the next stage in development would be a major upgrade to a true OpenBook library, a full-featured library of digital books on your WordPress site. It would be like the WordPress ‘Add Media’ feature, but for books. Likely it would let users add items from a variety of books sources. This would not be a trivial undertaking, and I am thinking of crowd funding the development work through a site like Kickstarter. What do you think?
