In the previous two blog posts, I’ve talked about two extensions that are coming for Mooberry Book Manager: MBM Advanced Widgets and MBM Multi-Author.
Today I’ll be showing you the third extension, MBM Additional Images. This plugin allows you to display additional images for a book beyond a single book cover, and also adds a place for you to add a video trailer.
Add additional images
A new section is added to the Book Edit page:
Multiple images can be added, and the images can be re-arranged to the order you prefer.
A link to the video trailer can be added. Check this list to see what video hosting sites can be used.
Viewing additional images & trailer
When you view the Book Page, the cover shows up as usual. Underneath the cover, the additional images you’ve uploaded appear as thumbnails. When you click on a thumbnail, that image will replace the cover image.
The trailer video displays below the book summary.
If you click on the larger image, you will see an even larger version of it displayed in a lightbox. You can scroll through all of the images with the left/right arrows.
MBM Additional Images, MBM Advanced Widgets, and MBM Multi-Author are coming soon, as in the next week or so. There will be a special launch deal just for our mailing list subscribers — so if you aren’t on our list, now would be a good time to join! You’ll also get a free plugin, Mooberry Story, when you join.
