An excellent and useful plugin
By , for WP 4.4

This is a very useful plugin and the only one of its kind as far as I can see. Some very technical coding which works really well. If you work with Mendeley and you want to publish lists of publications on your site this is the tool to use.

I have found that working with the CSL styles works best even though CSL has its own limitations (e.g. I have not yet found a way to display URLs as links). The use of filters is powerful and allows you to produce categorised lists.

Without CSL the plugin provides a range of CSS classes to support formatting - perhaps this collection of styles could be extended (e.g. by including a class for the abstract.

Brilliant!

If you use WordPress and Mendeley this is a must. Incredibly helpful (and powerful) at integrating the two.

Great!

At the very first, I've installed the old version (the old Mendeley OAuth version) plugin and cannot get any access token from the plugin.... So, I posted my question to the support page of this plugin and get prompt reply that a OAuth2 version will coming soon.

Now I've installed the new verion (0.9). In the API Keys section of WP Mendeley setting, a URL can be used to apply a Mendeley application. After receive the client ID and secret from Mendeley, you can request the access token.

I use the [mendeley type="own" groupby="year" sortby="year", sortorder="desc"] as the shortcode in my post, and it works.

Hasn't worked yet.

Great idea, but can't get it to work and there doesn't seem to be any kind of timely support. Happy to change the review if things change...
