WordPress Plugin: Pocket Read It Later Links

Latest version: 1.0– Released 15/06/2012:

  • Initial release.


This plugin allows you to display Pocket ‘Read It Later’ links next to each post on your blog. You can see an example on the Pocket blog. You can automatically insert the links adjacent to your blog posts or you can use the template tag to insert the links wherever you like.

What the hell is Pocket?

From getpocket.com:

Pocket (formerly Read It Later) helps people who discover an interesting article, video or web page, but don’t have time to view it. Once saved to Pocket, the list of content is visible on any device — phone, tablet or computer. It can be viewed while waiting in line, on the couch or during commutes or travel — even offline.

Check out getpocket.com for all the details and to sign up.


You can install this plugin directly from your WordPress dashboard:

  1. Go to the Plugins menu and click Add New.
  2. Search for Pocket Read It Later Links.
  3. Click Install Now next to the Pocket Read It Later Links plugin.
  4. Activate the plugin.

Alternatively, see the guide to Manually Installing Plugins.

Once activated, check out the front page of your blog. A ‘Read It Later’ link will now show adjacent to each post.


By default, this plugin adds a ‘Read It Later’ link adjacent to each blog post on your blog. You can control where the ‘Read It Later’ links show up by going to the Settings -> Pocket Links menu in WordPress.
