This plugin provides an easy shortcode macro to generate a list of your library’s most popular books (determined by the number of times it was checked out) with cover art from Syndetics (if available). Both the title and cover image are links to the Online Catalog search results page.

Shortcode examples:

[selco_top_titles  lib_code=zum]

[selco_top_titles lib_code=zum]

[selco_top_titles  lib_code=zum  top_num=20]

[selco_top_titles lib_code=zum top_num=20]

[selco_top_titles  lib_code=zum  top_num=20 period=2]

[selco_top_titles lib_code=zum top_num=20 period=2]

lib_code is your library’s Horizon location code;

top_num is the number of books that will be shown. This parameter is optional, if not specified 20 will be used;

period is the period of time to count total checkouts. (New in Version 2 only). This parameter is optional, if not specified all will be used.

Valid values:
n =  Where n is the number of previous months to include in addition to the current month. For example: 0 will give the top checked out items for the current month; 1 will give the top checked out items for the previous month + the current month; 3 will give the top checked out items for the previous 3 months + the current month
year =    previous calendar year’s top checked out items
all =     the top checked out items since 11/01/2011

Items must be in either one of the b or p collection codes to be included.

NOTE: Only Version 2 of this plugin allows you to specify a period of time that you want to count the number of checkouts.
