12016-10-09T12:21:12-07:00Book Splash Layout4plain2019-09-24T15:06:16-07:00In the Book Splash layout, the page's key image or video (either its own, or one inherited from its parent) is shown full screen, with the book's title and author(s) at the bottom. If the page is part of a path or is itself a path, a navigation button is shown as well. Note that videos must be in a generally supported web video format like MP4, OGG, or WebM.
Setting a page to a Book Splash layout is a two-step process. First, choose the image or video you’d like displayed full screen by selecting “Key image” under “Styling” in the page editor. For videos, only those with an MP4 file format will show up as options. Second, choose "Book Splash" in the drop down menu under "Layout."
