Cover images on main site frontpage

Is there a way or shortcode to add cover images to main frontpage?

Hello - did you ever find out a way to do this? Which theme are you using? Aldine? We’re trying to also put in a cover image.

This is a very old message that I believe was in reference to original site library homepage that automatically created thumbnails of the catalog. This was a great feature but was gone with the more recent versions of Pressbooks. Now you have to create the images manually on the homepage e.g., … unless someone has a plugin.


System Info:

Pressbooks Configuration

Version: 5.17.3
Root Theme: Aldine
Root Theme Version: 1.9.0

@ksattler There’s no native way to do this in Pressbooks currently with the Aldine theme. There is a feature request in our backlog to add support for this, which you can follow here:, however. Agree that it would be nice to have for many networks!
