You aren't limited to use books with the default settings (see later), you can add attributes to the
[pageflip5] shortcode. There are two types of attributes:
- Plugin attributes
- Pageflip config attributes
The Plugin Attributes are handled by the plugin, they aren't passed to the Pageflip5 engine. They are used, when multiple books are displayed on the same page. As only one Pageflip5 book can be shown on a web page, the hidden books can be opened by clicking on a link.
Adding a unique ID to the book helps deep linking in the book, even there is more books on the page.

All Pageflip Config Attributes set in the shortcode will override the default Config Options set in the Plugins Setting page.
