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. the limit atribute is not working for me, It’s limiting to five books always

    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.

  2. Hi,
    How to hide text on the button. I don’t want to show any text on the button.

    1. Hi,
      The button from the shortcode will have text.

      You can have space in between the shortcode but the button won’t take proper height and width without text.
      [dflip id="19" type = "button" ] [/dflip]

      Alternatively, you can use any other button and wrap it with dflip custom type shortcode.

      Or did you mean some other button?
