Your Blog on BookLikes - Custom-Made


We've made some shifts and moves and added some customization possibilities. From now on you can manage the look of your blog on BookLikes and make it more personal thanks to customization tools which allow you to modify, add and change some of the elements visible on your personal webpage. 


Moves and shifts 


We've moved several elements from Settings to a new spot. All changes will be visible once you Save them. If you don't like them, just remove them and try something new.


Now if you would like to add or change the following things:


- blog name

- blog description

- social share buttons (likes, tweets, +1, pin it)

- social profile links

- design theme


you can do it in Settings/Blog tab by clicking Customize


This is perfect place for doing some personalization with your title and introduction, editing your blog design and sharing your writings thanks to social share buttons (add like, tweet, +1, pin it buttons) and your social profiles.


Some Extras


Additionally we've added several extra features to let you tinker with your page little longer :-) Let's see, once you click Customize in Settings/Blog you can change your webpage look. Here's how:


- You can add widgets to your BookLikes webpage, just get widget code(s) from Goodies/Widget page and paste it in Widget Area (if you want to add several widgets, just paste several codes, one under another);


- You can change sides of your columns and move them from right to left;




- You can hide and reveal boxes with books - you can decide whether you want to show all of them: Currently reading, Recently Added or Favorite books, some or none (instead of boxes you can place Shelf Widget);


- You can change background on your pages (possibilities varies according to design theme) and modify color of your Blog Name - this change will be visible on all of your sub-sites - blog, shelf, timeline).


You can upload images for header (in leather theme) and background (in all themes).





OR you can go crazy with color (add custom CSS to change background color, e.g.:  body { background: #FF5274; } ).



Play around and click Save. If you don't like the color or image, you can easily delete it and try something new.


Get ready for engaging and addictive fun :-) Gradually we'll add more customization features and new designs themes. If you have requests and preferences, do let us know :-)
