Sharing Club


Sharing Club lets you create a list of the items (like DVD, books, tools…) you want to lend to your users.
They can easily book, comment and rate these item. On the admin side, you can track what you’ve lent, who borrowed it and when.

Useful for any NGO, association or community with a sharing philosophy.
Currently available in english, french and dutch – feel free to translate it (using WordPress online interface or the provided files in the languages folder).

The shared object are based on WordPress custom post type and taxonomy (custom categories) which means that :

  • you can use other plugins to extends the Sharing Club possibilities, see the FAQ below
  • you can use easily integrate them, straight in your theme or using the provided templates files (see comments inside the PHP files)
  • you can search for objects from anywhere in your website, like you would do for any other post

If you like this plugin, I would really appreciate if you can leave it a positive review (you need to create a WordPress account if you don’t have one yet).

You can also customize how the items will be listed and displayed using your own templates :

  • templates/single-shared_item.php display the booking form and all its options.

Make sure your theme supports the “featured images” so you can display the shared item picture in your item list.

Συχνές Ερωτήσεις

Μπορώ να προσθέσω περισσότερα πεδία στα μοιρασμένα αντικείμενα ή στους δανεισμούς;

Yes, if the “notes” field is not enough, you can add other custom field using Advanced Custom Fields.
If you’re tech savvy and want to add extra functionalities to the lendings, you have to know that they are actually “custom comments”, mapped liked this :

User            user_id
Object          comment_post_ID
Lending date    comment_date
Return date     comment_date_gmt
Reviews         comment_content
Admin notes     comment_agent
Rating          comment_karma

So, feel free to use the other fields from the wp_comments table to store extra lending data.

Μπορούν τα μέλη μου να μοιράζονται τα δικά τους αντικείμενα;

Yes, you can allow your users to join the club and add their objects. If they are not administrators, use Ultimate Member to give them a restricted access to your admin. You can display the user name next to the item title uncommenting <?php the_author(); ?> in templates/single-shared_item.php or in the shared item list modifying the templates/Walker_Category_Posts.php accordingly.

Είναι αυτό το πρόσθετο συμβατό με το BuddyPress;

Yes, actually it was developped for a BuddyPress community in the first place.

Μπορώ να εισάγω αρκετά αντικείμενα με τη μία;

Yes, you can create a spreadsheet with all your objects, save it in CSV format and use a plugin like Really Simple CSV Importer to import it in your admin.

Βρήκα αυτό το πρόσθετο βοηθητικό, πως μπορώ να βοηθήσω πίσω;

If you like this plugin, I would really appreciate if you can leave it a positive review (you need to create a WordPress account if you don”t have one yet).

Good one. Free and useful for social service organizations. A little more 'dummies guide' would have helped:) Thanks for this!

This plugin works really well! There are a few things that need tweaking such as adding a user role for a club librarian to maintain our lending library of books, videos and equipment, and a label that needs to be localized in the "Lendings" page on the backend, but other than that I think this will work perfectly. Thanks for the plugin!

This is the only plugin that really can help you to implement a sharing system. Great for small libraries and any other kind of item you would like to share. Hope that it will keep being updated! Congrats!

It would be great if it would be possible to have several units of one item.
