If you need to maintain a bibliography in bibtex format and also write a Web page to publish the list of your publications, then bib3html is the right solution for you.

bib3html is a refined fork from bib2html written by tango. It enables to add bibtex entries formatted as HTML in wordpress pages and posts. The input data is a local or remote bibtex file and the output is HTML.
The entries are formatted by default using the IEEE style. Bibtex source file and a link to the publication are also available from the HTML.
In order to reduce site loading the generated HTML Contents are cached in the cache directory for a defined time. If the cached HTML is out of date it gets reloaded automatically.


  • input data directly from the bibtex text file
  • source files can be URL
  • automatic HTML generation
  • template and cache usage
  • easy inclusion in wordpress pages/posts by means of a dedicated tag
  • possibility of filtering the bibtex entries based on their type (e.g. «allow», «deny»)
  • possibility to access the single bibtex entry source code to enable copy&paste (toggle-enabled visualization)
  • expose URL of each document (if network-reachable)
  • possibility of editing the bibtex file directly from the wordpress administration page

The bib3html plugin has been developed and tested under WordPress 3.2.0

A brief Markdown Example

When writing a page/post, you can use the tag [bibtex] as follows:

This is tango’s whole list of publications: [bibtex file=»mypub.bib»]
If you want to filter the type of bibtex items, you can use one of the attributes allow, deny and key as follows:

This is tango’s list of journal articles:
[bibtex file=»mypub.bib» allow=»article»]

This is tango’s list of conference articles and technical reports:
[bibtex file=»mypub.bib» allow=»inproceedings,techreport»]

This is the rest of tango’s publications:
[bibtex file=»mypub.bib» deny=»article,inproceedings,techreport»]

This is tango’s latest conference paper:
[bibtex file=»mypub.bib» key=»CGW2006″]

This is tango’s bibliography maintained at
[bibtex file=»»]

This is tango’s bibliography maintained at
[bibtex file=»″]


  1. download the zip file and extract the content of the zip file into a local folder
  2. local bibtex files should be copied in bib3html/data/ directory
  3. upload the folder bib3html into your wp-content/plugins/ directory
  4. if using a unix based operation system set chmod to an appropriate state (esp. /cache, /data)
  5. log in the wordpress administration page and access the Plugins menu
  6. activate bib3html


How can I edit tango’s bibtex files?

If your file is local to the blog installation, you have two options:
– via FTP client with text editor
– via WordPress Admin interface: Manage->Files->Other Files
— use wp-content/plugins/bib3html/data/mybibfile.bib as a path

Alternatively, you can maintain your updated biblilography by using systems such as and;
specify the bib file using as a URL (e.g., in citeulike, you should use

How are the entries sorted?

Since version 0.9, the entries are sorted by year starting from the most
recent; in future revision, I plan to make this configurable by the user

How can I personlize the HTML rendering?

The HTML rendering is isolated in a template file called bibentry-html.tpl.
Just change it.
