Using CiteULike and Bib2HTML in WordPress

You might be using the Bib2HTML plugin and CiteULike to present your publications on your wordpress blog. Playing around a bit with both tools today, I found a way to present only a selection of your entire CiteULike bibliography which I have not seen documented elsewhere.

  • The following code snippet will present your entire bibliography [bibtex file=http://www.citeulike.org/bibtex/user/greger] example
  • You can use the following snippet to select only your own work [bibtex file=http://www.citeulike.org/bibtex/user/greger/author/Wikstrand:G?fieldmap=posted-at:posted-date&clean_urls=0] example
  • And you can use use tags to present only a selection of articles appropriate to a single blog entry [bibtex file=http://www.citeulike.org/bibtex/user/greger/tag/20110817?fieldmap=posted-at:posted-date&clean_urls=0] example. In this case, I used the tag “20110817” to indicate articles which I referred to in a blog post on that date.

  1. A better way for your own pubs is http://www.citeulike.org/bibtex/user/greger/publi… assuming you have flagged your own articles properly. Your way is not too reliable if one's name is John Smith :-)

    • Thanks for the speedy feedback! I will indeed try your method. I guess I am lucky that my name isn't John Smith…

    • I had some problems with the URL you provided until I realized that there was an extra \”,\” at the end of it. Instead of http://www.citeulike.org/bibtex/user/greger/publications?fieldmap=posted-at:posted-date&clean_urls=0, it should be http://www.citeulike.org/bibtex/user/greger/publications?fieldmap=posted-at:posted-date&clean_urls=0.
