*Previous post had a little problem. This one will work (I'm talking about method 2)
If you're a goodreads transplant, and, like me, depended heavily on those handy little spoilertags, then don't worry. Booklikes is flexible enough that you can make your own!
Thanks to a fabulous tutorial by anhec I've snagged myself a (faux) comment page. Heh.
How to change colour of text on your banner :
Added pages - I can't read it! My background is dark and font is black! And I want to have a comment section!
Changing appearance of followers/following counters and repositioning them:
Changing font colour (text, links, comment section):
Background for a search bar (what to do when it's invisible on a dark background):
Reading Challenge - how to post it on your site and a few simple customization options:
My booklikes account (like many of the migrants from GoodReads) is on hold and semi-inactive until GoodReads has officially been disowned in my eyes. Who knows, I might choose to run both at the same time, though. Booklikes is kind of cute, I admit.
Anyway, I'm also importing my books. Just in case.
Two "Add" functions are available on BookLikes from today: add books manually and add book covers.
From now on it doesn’t matter if you want to shelve unpublished books or self-published or from a local bookstore, now you can put on your Shelf all books ever existed. It’s called manual book adding. We have it online!
If you don’t find a desirable book in a search box you can easily ‘create’ a book from the scratch.
Click on “Add new book” after no results were found and fill up the necessary information of Book Title, Book Author, Book Cover, Book Description and ISBN. Click “Add Book” and add it to you bookshelf or create a post.
Second “add” function is about missing book covers. If some books on your Shelf lack covers, you can add them manually too. Click on a green book (no cover) and ‘Add cover' underneath it. Then choose image from your computer and voila. The book looks perfect with cover of your choice!
So what book will you add first?
Many - myself included - either have only rudimentary knowledge of Custom Style Sheets (CSS) or none whatsoever. Whichever category you fall in, there is a way to easily edit your CSS to customize the layout of your blog. Many browsers have addons to live edit your CSS and preview it at the same time. For Google Chrome I use Stylebot.
