How do I insert headings within a list of books with cover art, for example: General, Special Education, etc.?

Also, how can create more space above and below the text dividers so they' stand out. Many thanks!

The best way to do this (currently) is to add your divider categories as additional "fake" items in your list of books. To add a fake item:

  • Click Add New Book
  • In the Book Title field, enter the heading name as you'd like it to appear (eg. "General Literature")
  • You can also add explanatory text for your category using the "Description" field
  • Click Create Book

That should net you a result that looks something like this:

Text Dividers

If you'd like to insert more spacing around those dividers, you can do so by strategically adding the <br> tag in the Book Title (or item description, if you've chosen to enter text there) field.  For example, try adding the text between the quotes below (not the quotes!):

  • Entering "<br><br>General Literature" in the Book Title field will generate 2 line breaks before your text
  • Entering "General Literature<br><br>" will generate 2 line breaks after your text
  • Entering "<br>General Literature<br>" will generate a line break on either side of your text
