Inside the ”export” screen, you’ll see this ”shortcode.” A shortcode is a ”short piece of code” inside square rackets. WordPress recognizes this code and substitutes other content. Many plugins use custom shortcodes to embed custom cointent. think of them as ”widgets” that go in the content instead of the sidebar.

Copy/paste the shortcode from your eBook’s ”Export” screen into any post or page to embed the book in that post or page. This is an ”embedded” book (as in http://pubml.com/the-blue-monk/ ).

Alternatively, you can export the book, unzip the files and drop these in a web hosting account to create a self-contained eBook/website (as in http://www.thebluemonkbook.com ). This is an ”exported book.”
