Extending the reach of Wordpress - cause it's really really cool.

WordPress BookMooch Widget

Screenshot of BookMooch Widget Control Panel I’ve created a wordpress widget to simplify adding the BookMooch widget to WordPress websites and blogs. This widget takes advantage of the new widget API of WordPress version 2.8, and is not compatible backwards to earlier versions of WordPress.

I’ve registered it with the main WordPress plugin directory so it can be installed with the WordPress web plugin installer. To install it manually, download the zip file from Then use the “Add New” plugin page to upload the zip file to your website, or unzip the contents of the zip file and upload it using ftp into your /wordpress/wp-content/plugins directory.

Please let me know if you run into any issues or have any suggestions for improvements.

    I’ve just installed and activated the widget, but I wish there were more documentation as to how to configure it. Hopefully when I go back into my WordPress Dashboard I’ll figure it out with a few minutes of fiddling, but I wish there were a walk-through.

    That’s a good point – I’ll work up a quick screen shot tutorial this weekend.

    Thanks for the feedback,
