TitlePager makes beautiful marketing websites for books. Part of the idea for the service came from our making WordPress sites for authors. Building feature filled pages for them required custom templates, and the addition of loads of plugins. We wanted to make it easier for authors to highlight their books.
TitlePager landing pages have loads of information and customization options that would be difficult to do on a typical WordPress site where they would need a custom page template, plug-ins, and some advanced scripting.
We realize that many authors have sites where they could use really robust pages for their books. There are two ways to integrate TitlePager onto your sites. One is to make the TitlePage a menu item and link to it. Another is to embed the TitlePage in to a WordPress page or post.
Creating a WordPress menu item for your TitlePage
A great way to integrate TitlePager on to your author site is to use it as your book page for every title you’ve written. It will spur sales and you can load it with information specific to that title. If you have just one title you can add it as a link to your menu. If you have more that one book and your menu supports dropdowns you should create a category called My Books and then create links to your TitlePages under that.
Using the WordPress iFrame Plugin To Embed TitlePager
The plugin is called iFrame and it enables the ability to embed content on a WordPress page or post using a short code. It can be used for TitlePages, video, googlemaps, and other types of content. You can see an example of it here on Josh’s site (TitlePager’s founder) for his book Fifty shade of Chicken.
After installing the plugin you simply add a page for your book and enter a shortcode that looks something like this:
[iframe src=”your TitlePager sub-domain address” width=”100%” height=”adjust the default height from 500 to something more like 1200 or more”]
After embedding it the page will retain it’s ability to react to and be read on mobile devices and tablets even if the rest of the WordPress site doesn’t. We hope that the ability to embed the page on to a WordPress site is useful to lots of authors.
