[resolved] Place Input "Add Reader Extra" Elsewhere (4 posts)

    For the first time I utilized the "Add Reader Extras" section. I expected it to be at the bottom of whatever else I had entered into the content area for the book.

    Instead it appears at the top of content. See http://michelesinclair.com/wptrial/books/a-woman-made-for-pleasure

    I would suggest the following:
    Place at the bottom with a "title" of "Reader Extras". Make a class for these links so that we the users can modify with CSS. For example: I know I will want these in a much smaller font than the content area.

    Also I would like a description text area to the right of the Link. Some links one might add could (but will not always) need a bit of explanation for the reader.

    I'll leave the reader extras at the top of this URL for awhile. But cannot go "live" this way.

    To customise the layout of the plugin, the best way to go is to use the templating functionality built into the plugin, instructions are here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/totally-booked/other_notes#Advanced-Usage

    That way you can edit any of the layout, CSS classes, and even remove the Read More links by removing or commenting out the template tag that displays the box. tb_get_entry_meta()

    Alternatively, if you only have 1 book in a genre for example, and you don't want the link, then there is no need to actually have the book associated with the genre, then it won't display the link ;)

    Let me know how you go.

    Hmmmm -- you are definitely giving me some ideas to work with. For example, No need to mark the genre if there is only one book.

    One question regarding "Use the templating functionality"...

    Should that go in a child theme?

    I definitely recommend tweaking templates in a child theme.

    Let me know if you have any more questions.
