Examples WordPress BibSonomy Plugin

Here you can see some usage examples of the BibSonomy plugin for WordPress. I inserted the macros into this page to reflect my data on BibSonomy. This will give you live examples of my latest bookmarks, publications and tags; note that the results may change over time.


The most popular feature around these days may be the tag cloud. Use the following macro to show yours from BibSonomy:

[bibsonomy-tags minusercount="8"]

Furthermore, the CSS needs to be included in the header: add a custom field named bibsonomy to the post/page with the macro.

These are my tags with a minimum tag frequency of twelve:

[bibsonomy-tags minusercount=”12″]


This plugin uses the Google Chart API to generate charts. Showing some statistics about your tags is as easy as using the following macro:

[bibsonomy-tags style="occurrence" minusercount="1"]
[bibsonomy-chart color="#6699cc" xlabels="10"]

You can use bibsonomy-tags along with the nested macro bibsonomy-chart that holds some options for the chart. This is mine:

[bibsonomy-tags style=”occurrence” minusercount=”1″]
[bibsonomy-chart color=”#6699cc” xlabels=”14″]

If you’ve tagged a lot of resources and used a lot of different tags, the graph will show the famous long tail.


The bibsonomy-posts macro is very powerful because you can select every post you like. You can choose between bookmarks or publications, add various tags and restrict the amount of results.

The cool thing is, that you can insert the macros wherever you want, add new bookmarks or publications to your BibSonomy profile and the macros will reflect these changes without any further manual intervention. You’ll only have to manage your data in one place.


If you’d like to show a simple list of your three most recent bookmarks, add this to a post/page:

[bibsonomy-posts end="3"]

This results in:

[bibsonomy-posts end=”3″]


Managing your blogroll with BibSonomy is easy: add a tag, say, blogroll to the bookmarks that should appear in your blogroll and add tags="blogroll" to the macro.


The same works for publications. Lets select the four most recent papers I read with:

[bibsonomy-posts resourceType="bibtex" tags="paper" end="4"]

[bibsonomy-posts resourceType=”bibtex” tags=”paper” end=”4″]
