How to add my own Book?

Go to your media manager, create a folder under /images/mod_yoobookblock folder (example /images/mod_yoobookblock/mybookblock/), put your pictures in it. They should be of same dimensions, to guarantee a nice display at screen. No worries if you put files other than images, Yoo3gDallery will filter them.

Good to know Each picture counts for a double page. In other words, there is no need to split pictures for each "page".

How to associate links with pictures?

The link parameter is optional. If you want to specify links, you just have to fill in this option using a JSON string.

Example:{ "1.jpg":"http://www.google.com", "2.jpg":"http://www.yourwebsite.com" } where 1.jpg is the name of a picture in your book.
