Our WordPress Guide gives you a complete overview of our plugin:
If you are having problems, we have a WordPress Troubleshooting Guide:
Is Bibblio free?
If you make fewer than 25,000 recommendation calls per month, Bibblio is totally free. This Starter plan offers full functionality, including all available plugin layouts and support. If you need more, we have monthly rolling subscription plans to suit your requirements.
Do I need to create an account?
Yes. Your data protection is important to us, so having a secure account ensures this.
After uploading and activating the plugin you’ll see a link to Bibblio in the WordPress admin’s left menu. From there, you’ll be able to create a Bibblio account.
Will it slow down my site?
No, the related posts plugin will not interrupt or slow down the rendering of your site. We do all caching on our side, and the latency of recommendation delivery via our modules is often quicker than the other page elements on our clients’ platforms.
After setting up, how long will I initially have to wait for my posts to be indexed and for my related content module to appear?
Related posts can be live in a matter of minutes, but for very large catalogs the full indexing may take several hours. Please be patient – it’s worth the wait!
What are the ‘content items’ mentioned on my Bibblio dashboard?
A content item is a post in your catalogue that you want to provide recommendations to and from. Depending on your plan, there’s a limit to the number of content items that can be stored at any time. You need a minimum of five posts on your site for the plugin to pull recommendations from.
What are the ‘recommendation calls’ mentioned on my Bibblio dashboard?
A recommendation call is a request to the discovery endpoint of the Bibblio API which results in related posts being delivered for the post you’re currently viewing.
Which languages does Bibblio support?
Bibblio is built to work in any language that uses a Latin-based alphabet.
Which posts will the plugin ingest automatically?
The plugin will automatically ingest your most recent posts up to the limit specified in your plan (if you have chosen this during setup). In the Settings page you can also choose to automatically ingest all future posts. You can also include or exclude individual posts from the Bibblio panel in the post editor.
N.b. You need a minimum of five posts on your site for the plugin to pull recommendations from.
Does Bibblio support custom post types?
Yes, we do!
Does the plugin work on mobile?
It does! Our modules are fully responsive, collapsing gracefully to display smartly on the smallest devices.
Can I display related posts in the body of the post?
Yes, you can display a related posts module within the body of your post using shortcodes. When editing a post in the visual module, just click on the line where you would like the module to appear, then click on Bibblio’s ‘Insert Shortcode’ icon in the toolbar. If you make any changes to your module, just remember to reinsert your shortcode into your posts.
Can I display related posts on my homepage?
At the moment, recommendations are retrieved for individual posts, rather than for multiple posts at once, so the module can only be displayed on the posts themselves. However, we are looking into this.
Can I use shortcodes in my templates?
Yes, you can add shortcodes to your template using PHP code in the source, replacing SHORTCODE with your Bibblio shortcode:
<?php echo do_shortcode('[SHORTCODE]'); ?>
What sort of reporting and tracking of enrichment and recommendation does Bibblio support?
Your WordPress plugin dashboard allows you to see how many posts you have stored and how many recommendations have been served each month. You can see this and also your click-through rates by visiting your full dashboard on bibblio.org.
