~How to Add a Bookcover Link ~

• Click on the "add book/author link above the text box which you're typing in for the discussion.

• Notice a search box or “look-up” opens up and at the bottom the words
add: ⦿ link 〇cover
The little blue dot will always first default to link unless you click on cover.

• Type in the title you of the book you desire, and click "search".

• Click on the "add" button next to the option you want to include and the html for the cover will appear in your text box.

• Make sure that "cover" is chosen before you click the big “search” button, but if you forget, you can always put your cursor after the word “book” and before the colon: in the link and the bookcover will appear.

I'll put an asterisk* in the code so you can see the book numbers are the same:

[*book:Through a Dark Mist|7776013]
[*bookcover:Through a Dark Mist|7776013]

Results :

Through a Dark Mist
Through a Dark Mist = link

Through a Dark Mist by Marsha Canham
Through a Dark Mist by Marsha Canham = bookcover link

• If the bookcover that appears is not the one you want, simply click on "other editions" right under the add button. Page numbers are at the bottom of the "look-up". Browse until you find the cover you desire.

Thanks, that has been really helpful. I've ask myself a while how to add book covers, but couldn't figure it out.
