Using Categories:

How to Display Multiple flipbooks?

You can display multiple books at once. We recommend using Book Categories and adding your books to those categories.
[dflip books="category-a"][/dflip]

Displays all the books in category named “category-a“. only 5 latest books will be displayed.

Books limited to only 5!

By default the multiple books are limited to 5. you can increase the limit by adding the number or showing all.

[dflip books="category-a" limit="-1"][/dflip]

Displays all the books in category-a

More Examples

[dflip books="category-a,category-b" limit="-1"][/dflip]
[dflip books="all" limit="-1"][/dflip]
Notice the limit attribute… -1 for all, 5 for 5 , 10 for 10..
These are created as thumbnails by default.. To convert to buttons use the following shortcode:
[dflip books="category-a" limit="-1" type="button"][/dflip]

    1. Hi, Can you share what shortcode you had used? Also in some editors, the quotes are converted to other quotes try adding quotes yourself.

    1. Hi,

      When using PDF, you can create clickable links and spots using a PDF editor, or Document editor that you later export as PDF.

      For image-based flipbook, hotspots can be created using the plugin.

      But we recommend using PDF-based methods, for ease of maintainability and future edits.
      We create our PDF with links and hotspots using, MS word then exports them as PDF.

      Best Regards
