Find Books Any Time, Any Place

Search Books Any Time And Any Place

Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.

Neil Gaiman

 

BookLikes book catalog is like online library. You can search books and authors any time, and now, any place - the header with a menu and a search box will follow you and stay fixed to the top. 

 

If you experience the urgent need of finding a given title while browsing reviews on your Dashboard, you'll have fun with a new header - now you can use the search box without the necessity of going up and losing your reading position on your Dash. 

 

Book reviews

 

 

The BookLikes header received a fixed top position and will follow your fingertips and eyes staying close enough to help you out when you feel the need to move to another BookLikes place or use the search box. 

 

Reading lists

 

The fixed position of the header can be switch off in Settings/General

 

 

Updates

 

Add your social profile links

 

Now you can add more links to your social profile in the customization tab. Apart from default social profiles (Facebook, Twitter, G+, Pinterest, Goodreads), you can add more links to you other webpages or new social platforms you're using and want to share with your blog guests. 

 

To add your social profile links go to Settings/Blog and click Customize. You'll be moved to the customization tab where you can personalize your BookLikes webpage by:

- choosing your blog title

- adding short bio

- adding your widgets

- adjusting the blog layout

- choosing new blog design

- adding your social profile links. 

 

To add more profile links click add next profile, insert the URL and write a title.

Remember to save all your changes and updates to make them visible on your BookLikes webpage. 

 

Personalize your blog

 

This new option is available for blog themes where the HTML has't been edited. 

 

 

Polish bookstores

 

Polish book bloggers on BookLikes can benefit from links to Polish bookstores. Book pages of Polish books received links to Polish bookshops.

Changing fonts in a post.

If it is one of the "browser safe" fonts(list) I believe you can just do this:

 

I'll use Tahoma for this example.

 

"Someday, I'm going to meet some supernatural creature who tells me everything I should know up front and in a forthright manner - but I'm not going to hold my breath." - Patricia Briggs (River Marked)

 

Here is what is going on in my HTML code:

 

 

If you want to use Google Fonts you need to add the bit of code they give you to your blog HTML.

 

I'll use Electrolize for this example.

 

First, I took this code Google Fonts gave me:

 

and put it right bellow the < head > tag in my Blog HTML:

 

 

 

Now it's possible to use Electrolize as a font-family:

 

"Someday, I'm going to meet some supernatural creature who tells me everything I should know up front and in a forthright manner - but I'm not going to hold my breath." - Patricia Briggs (River Marked)

 

Here's what's in the HTML:

 

Don't forget to capitalize the font name. 

 

I hope this is understandable. :)

Cursor Fun!!!

Go to your Settings - Blog - Then Click Theme:customize and then on each page you want follow (blog, timeline, etc) follow these directions:

 

STEP 1: Copy and paste the code below so that it sits between the <head> and </head> tags at the top of your web-page:

 

<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[
var sparks=75; // how many sparks per clicksplosion
var speed=33; // how fast - smaller is faster
var bangs=5; // how many can be launched simultaneously (note that using too many can slow the script down)
var colours=new Array('#03f', '#f03', '#0e0', '#93f', '#0cf', '#f93', '#f0c');
// blue red green purple cyan orange pink

sleft=0;
}
}
// ]]>
</script>

 

STEP 2: If you wish, change the colours at the start of the script you just copied to be the colour of fireworks you require.

 

THAT'S IT When your page loads, the fireworks should begin to explode on the screen, just like it is on this page.

Do you have a see-through or colored comment section?

Does this bother you about it?

It's been bothering me for a while now.

 

Why does the text have to go all the way to the border of the comment section? Well, it doesn't!

 

I think I found the code that controls it:
