Booklists and Categories

Adding a Booklist

A Booklist is a way to keep Book records into organized groups.All books must belong to a booklist. Examples of Booklist names might be "Staff Picks", "Training Resources" or "Book Club".

Each Booklist can utilize a unique page Template, otherwise they will use the default Books template created by your developer.

  1. Go to Content > Books > Booklists.
  2. Click the Add a New Booklist button.
  3. Give the list a name and description.
  4. Set the Booklist Group. If you aren't using Groups on your site, the default Site Group should be used.
  5. Verify that your default or desired Template is set.
  6. Click Create.

 To add a book to your new Booklist:

  1. Go to Content > Books
  2. Select any books you'd like to add to the booklist
  3. In the upper right hand corner, select "Edit Selected Books"
  4. Under option "Add Booklist" select the correct booklist
  5. Click "Submit" 

Adding a Book Category

A Books Category offers another way to filter Books. Categories are much simpler and don't require much setup.

  1. Go to Content > Books > Caregories.
  2. Click the Add a New Category button.
  3. Enter a category name. If you'd like to make this a sub-category under an existing category, select the Parent. Though both parent and sub-categories are used in the same way on the website, it can be helpful to arrange them here for your reference.
