How-To's

Just trying to collect some how-to's for customizing various bits on booklikes.  Definitely a work in progress.  Obviously from how custom my blog is, just collecting for now:

 

Creating a goodreads style spoiler tag even though booklikes has one now (which requires spoiler to be in separate paragraph, spoiler text has to be highlighted after the fact, and some edits of post may make you have to re-spoiler the spoiler text):  http://jess.booklikes.com/post/464839/diy-spoilertags- 

 (and my post from my first failed attempt in case it helps http://donealrice.booklikes.com/post/574922/help-i-need-help-fixing-a-spoiler-tag-showing-on-before-clicked )
