Customize the spine of the book in this section. You can adjust the top/bottom text, set the color/background color, and adjust the font size.

In the Settings tab, you will have options to control the size of the whole 3D Cover, and as well adjust the default, and hover angles.

  • Default Angle (deg) - The default rotation angle for the cover. (default is 15)

  • Hover Angle (deg) - Rotation angle when the mouse is hovered over the cover (default is 30)

Placing the covers on a page via shortcode

Every cover will have it's unique shortcode, which you can copy and place them on any page.


Shortcode example:
[3d_guide_cover id="xxxx"]

*Replace the xxxx with the 4 digit id number *

You can override the cover size by adding size=small/medium/large in the shortcode

[3d_guide_cover id="xxx" size="small"]
[3d_guide_cover id="xxx" size="medium"]
[3d_guide_cover id="xxx" size="large"]
