As many of you know I am a dedicated user of LiveBinders. Tina and Barbara have done an excellent job of listening to their users in making enhancements to this web 2.0 tool. Their most recent update allows for users to embed their entire bookshelf on their own site while maintaining interactivity. Here is the released information pertaining to this new enhancement.
Add Your Public Shelf to Your Blog
April 18, 2011
You can now add your public binder shelf to your blog or website. It will look something like this (but it actually be live if your blog is hosted on something other than WordPress):
Unfortunately WordPress hosted blogs (like this one) will not allow iframes, so you cannot use this feature. If you are running the WordPress software, you can implement this feature through a plug-in.
To see a live example, please go to my testing blog on Blogger.
For Blogger, and other websites and wikis that accept iframes, go to your “My Binders” shelf and just cut and paste the embed code that you will find there on the right side:
Then select the embed code and copy and paste it into your blog or website:
For those of you who are a little more advanced, you can customize the embed code to have a different number of rows and columns. To do this, please see the Tips and Tricks binder under tab #4 “Embedding Binders” and the subtab “Customizing the Shelf Embed Code”.
Here is a collection of additional LiveBinder resources that may assist you in creating your very own 3-ring binder.
