Blogging about books - additional blog post options, part 2

Writing on BookLikes is super fun, right? We've already mentioned 6 ways to blog about books (click to read more), and the side bar menu in the text edition (click to read more). Today we'd like to continue the topic of the text editor features.

 

When you click the Text, Quote, Photo, Video, URL on the upper bar on your Dashboard, you'll be moved to the text editor with some additional options at the top. Let's have a closer look, beginning from the first icon on the left: 

 

 

1. Embed

Embed your tweets into your posts. Just copy the code from a tweet, paste into the embed box and voila

 

Go to any tweet and click Embed Tweet from the menu on the right. Copy the code.

 

Go to your post. Click the Embed icon in the text editor, paste the code and click OK. 

In the editor the embedded tweet will look like a plain text but once you publish a post, it will look like this:

 

Did we mention you can embed any tweet? Yes, you can! Try it out!

 

2. Blockquote.

Use this to highlight a quote in your text. 

 

Write your post. Mark the passage which should be highlighted and click the Blockquote icon. The text will be given additional space on the sides. Just like that.  

 

3. Spoiler

Hide a passage not to reveal the book ending! 

 

Write your review, decide which part to hide, mark it and click the SP icon. The text will receive addition markers in the text editor and will be hidden once published online.

4. Text options

Decide how to write: in bold, italics, underline your most important sentences or cross them out. 
Mark the text and choose the property. 

 

 

5.  Text layout

Align your text to right, left, center or justify.

Mark the text and choose the property. 

 

 

6. Make lists

You can easily make list in your text. Mark the text and decide which list format to choose:

  • bullet list or
  1. numbered list

 

 

7. Insert image

If you'd like to add an image you can use either the Add photo+ under the editor box or the Image icon on the top.

 

 

The Insert image icon works for image URL only. You can also edit the image with some advanced options, like style or additional border. 

 

8. Add link

Add link to your text.

Mark the text and click the link icon to insert the URL.

 

 

 

9. Page break

Add "read more" to your post. 

Write your article or review and decide where to add the READ MORE button. Put your cursor in that place and click Page break. The READ MORE button will be added to your text .

 

10. Source code

You can add more formatting to your text.

Write a full text and click the source code feature, add more features, like different font or color, etc.
