Cool...thanks. I have 2 books - in Course Shells -> Delta: CS11 & CSP31A that I need to export, as well as the An Introduction to Computer Networks (Dordal) book in the Computer Science library

There were a few hardcoded urls that were not automatically migrated when I updated the Mindtouch global variables for GLmol and JSmol a few days ago. I can confirm that both the Generator and Caffeine page are again operating normally.

Pat:

The timeframe for uploading a text to the Download center is no more than one week and that is meant to be where you can get the LMS files and print files etc. The red LMS button is not the go to place, but I understand it is the only thing you likely have for your new text.

Let me get back to you with a way forward (and we will fix that message too).

Cheers,

Delmar

Re: Why am I not logged in??

Pat:

We don't have the SSO mechanism in play yet. So, each library has its own authentication. You have an account on the engineering library, but not an account on the chemistry library. The SSO will be used to fix that so one account will work for all. If you need an account(s) on other libraries, let me know and we can set it(them) up for you.

Glmol

Is GL mol down? Shanzi was trying to get it to work, and it did not,
but when I went to the demo page, it was also not working.

Re: Remix or Edit??

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

Pat:

I am still updating the chapters; the images are not in properly in all the pages (and only addressing the first 12 chapters).

You can certainly remix now and if you translude those pages in the remixing, the updates to the bookshelves content will be reflected in your customized remix. If you fork, then not.

The problem is that this text has a ND clause on it, which means the best you (or the LibreTexts team) can do for you is allow you to reorganize the content. But, you cannot edit the content (other than superficial typsetting). To do more we/you need to get permission from the original author or (I think) if we fork your remix and hide it from public view, I think you can customize it for your purposes for your class- I need to review the license careful before I give the thumbs up for that.

Sorry, the ND clause is a real pain in the arse for the OER community and conflicts greatly with the LibreTexts philosophy.

Regards,

Delmar

Re: Remix or Edit??

Dorte Madsen
 

It sounds like you should do a remix and only grab the sections you want to use. 

Generally, if you are making edits to a book that are generally considered improvements to the book you edit the original. Examples could be fixing mistakes, adding clarifying explanations, cleaning up language, adding more relevant examples and getting rid of outdated one, etc. If you are editing the book to fit your class or pedagogical style you make a new book/remix.

It is set up on a weekly basis it will be up soon. If you need it faster, we can force it.

Re: some weird code

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

We have content from many different sources. While the top viewing level may be nearly the same, the underlying HTML often has a lot of variety. The new bot system is slowly working on transforming all the underlying HTML into a consistent format. This is also useful for ensuring accessibility.

However, this will take time. Upshot: Erase junk that makes no sense; we have a fairly limited code set.

It was goofing up the ability of the WYSIWYG to end at the end of a

removed this code, it worked fine.

Page Title Formats

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

I wanted to mention the title format that we have adopted on the LibreTexts for pages. Unless impossible to do, it is desired that each page be formatted like this "XX.YY: title"

where

  • XX is the chapter number
  • YY is the section number
  • title is the title

If the title has a colon it in (other the then colon after the chapter.section combo), please convert it to a dash.

Several exceptions to this format include:

  • Chapter Summaries : "XX.S: Chapter Title (Summary)"),
  • Chapter Exercises : ""XX:.E Chapter Title (Exercises)" and
  • Section subpages (avoid if possible), which should be then indicated by adding a letter (alphabetically). e.g., "4.3A: Cats are cute" and "4.3B: Dogs are cute" are both subsections to section/page "4.3: Animals are cute"

This approach preserves the curation and Remixing ability of the pages. It also preserve the automatic equations/figure/table numbering that work off of the title of the page.

Re: Editing issues (for consistent typesetting on LibreTexts libraries)

Yes, the html code is not the same as the what the editor uses. I am using the terms for the editor since more people do not edit the html directly.

It will come with a smaller size in html comparing with using tool. 
For example, when i choose "h1 heading h1" tool, it does show h1, however I turn to html page to check, it is <h2></h2> not <h1></h1>. 
This also happens in h2, h3, h4.
