Use Navigation Arrows
When not enabled, users will need to click on the page itself to turn through the pages. When enabled, users will use the left and right navigation buttons to turn the pages. Note: If you do not enable the Page Navigation buttons you will not be able to click and interact with the stacks inside of your pages (The whole page is used as a clickable area to turn the page).
Navigation Arrows Enabled Options:
- Only On Hover: – The left and right navigation buttons will only appear once a user places their mouse over the stack.
- Theme: Detailed, Simple, Flat – Select between these three styles to change how the arrows look.
- Color: – Change the color of the Detailed or Flat styles. Note: The simple style does not have a changable color.
When enabled, selectable bullets will appear below Booklit to allow users to quickly navigate between multiple pages.
Pagination Enabled Options:
- Color: – Change the color of the pagination bullets.
When enabled, The pages will turn automatically. Note: Once a user clicks on the Booklit Stack, auto navigate will turn off and allow them to navigate manually.
Auto Navigate Enabled Options:
- Loop: One Time, One Full Loop, Infinite – “One time” will turn through the pages until the last page is reached and stop. “One Full Loop” will turn through the pages until the last page and then turns backwards till the first page is reached and stops. “Infinite” will loop back and forth between all of the pages and will not stop unless a user clicks on the stack.
- Speed: – Set in milliseconds, this option determines how long the delay is before each turn of the page. IE 2000 = 2 seconds.

Booklit Page Stack
This stack is placed inside of the Booklit stack and creates the individual pages. The size of the Book will depend on the content you place inside of the Booklit Pages. Booklit will find the page with the most content and match the height of that page to all the other pages inside of your book. As for the width, that is determined by where you place the stack. It will match the width of the container you place it in (IE a column stack) otherwise the stack will fit to the width of your site. You can also adjust the left and right margin to make the book more narrow. After placing your desired amount of Booklit Pages into the Booklit stack, you can then add stacks content to each page. Note: Each page has a front and back.

Controls the background colors of the front and back of the page.
Base Font Colors
Controls the text color of the front and back of the page. Note: This will only set the base color and it can be overidden by the stacks you place inside if they have their own font color options.
Resonsive Options – Seperate Mobile Content:
Enabling this option will display another row of Front and Back content sections. Anything that you place into these content areas will be displayed to mobile devices inplace of the normal content. This is useful if you find that your content does not display how you would like on smaller screens.
Using the Social Media Stack Template
*Requires the free Font Awesome Stack (included with the Booklit Stack).
Step 1: Drag and drop the Font Awesome Stack onto your Stacks page.
Step 2: Drag and drop the “Booklit – Social Media” Stack Template into your desired location on your Stacks page. This stack works best in narrow areas like a three column stack.
Step 3: You can now start editing the template to create links to your own social media websites. Click on any of the icons to edit them. All you need to do is change the URL (http://www.twitter.com) to your page’s address and if you need to change the icon, change the icon name (IE fa-twitter) to match the social media icon you want to use. You can find a list of usable icons and their names here: Font Awesome. You may also want to change the background colors to match the social media sites you are linking to.
Step 4: Repeat step 3 until you have changed all of the links. Delete or duplicate pages to create new or remove unused links.
Using the Lightbox Stack Template
*Requires the Ice Box Stack.
Drag and drop the “Booklit – Lightbox” Stack Template into your desired location on your Stacks page.
