Responsive, mobile-friendly ‘View’ templates for book lists
3 out-of-the-box responsive, mobile-friendly Views to display book lists are readily available. All that needs to be done by the store staff are to edit the book lists and plug them into the views.
This feature provides 3 pages - Front Page Books 1, Front Page Books 2 and Front Page Books 3 and 3 blocks with the same names. The book lists from each of those 3 pages are pulled into views and displayed in the corresponding blocks. Though these view templates and blocks are named ‘Front Page’, they can be used for any pages on your website, like ‘Staff Picks’, ‘New and Noteworthy’ etc.
NOTE: This feature requires modules to be enabled for your site. If you have not previously requested we enable them for you please contact email@example.com. We will send you confirmation once it has been enabled.

If after following these instructions your cover images aren’t aligning correctly, try shifting the order of the books around so that the longer covers images are the last in the list.
