Bites4WP - A Book+Main Bites Profile Link Plugin for WordPress

Read Directions, Instructions, and Cautionary Tales:


  • Download zip file
  • In your WordPress dashboard, go to Plugins and Add New
  • Upload zip file
  • Activate


Open the Customizer Panel (accessible from the Admin Dashboard under Appearance -> Customize OR from the Customizer link in the admin bar at the top of the site), then click on Book+Main.

  • Profile Settings
    • Add your Book+Main username
  • Style Options
    • Set your design preferences. These apply to both the shortcode and to the floating icon. (Typography preferences only apply to the shortcode)
  • Display Options
    • Choose whether you'd like the floating icon to display everywhere, on home only, or disable the floating icon entirely.
    • Choose the position the icon will have on desktop browser windows
    • Choose the position the icon will have on smaller screens

Shortcode Use

To display the Book+Main Bites link in a page, post, or (if your theme allows) a widget, use the shortcode [bites_link].

Shortcode Parameters:

  • username : by default, the username you specified in the customizer will be used, but if you'd like to link to another profile, you can add it to the shortcode parameters.
  • text : default text is "follow me on book+main bites". To change this, add a "text" parameter to your shortcode.
  • align : by default, the shortcode link will be centered. Just like WordPress images, though, you may also set this parameter to "left", "right", or "none".
  • class : should you need to add an additional css class to the shortcode, you can add a class (or space-separated classes) to this parameter.

Using the Shortcode in Template Files:

if( shortcode_exists('bites_link' ) ) {
   echo do_shortcode('[bites_link'] );

Shortcode Examples

[bites_link username="janefonda"]
[bites_link text="come hang out with me at book+main!"]
[bites_link class="class1 class2"]
[bites_link align="left"]
