Use this plugin to display all the bestseller lists from New York Times on your own site. Optionally include links from your own local library catalog from each book.

The plugin uses an easy-to-use user-interface which updates quickly and “in-place” when changing lists without reloading the rest of the page.


WordPress 5.0

Use the Bestseller Lists from NYT block. You can optionally specify which list is initially displayed.

WordPress 4.x

Use the [nyt-bestseller-listings] shortcode to embed the lists in your page. You can optionally specify which list is initially displayed by using the initial-list attribute with the list slug as the attribute value. Get the list slug by first placing the shortcode in your page, then visiting the page and changing lists. The page url will change as the list changes, and the list slug can be seen by looking for nyt-list=SLUG-HERE in your browser’s url bar. So for example, to place the lists on a page and set the initial list to be children’s picture books, you would use: [nyt-bestseller-listings initial-list="picture-books"]

To hide the images, add the following bit of css to your theme using the Additional CSS section in the Customizer: .nyt-bestseller-listings-img { display: none; }.
