Larry Green
 

I am trying to remix a textbook (introductory statistics) and then go to the individual pages and add content to a page.  Could someone please explain how to do this?  My goal is to take the static book and bring in multimedia and interactivity.  It is important that I work on a remixed copy rather than on the actual book.  I am pretty sure that this is possible in remixer 2.0's Forker, but I am not even sure if that is up yet as the default.
Thanks,
Larry

The remixer v1.0 is a one time thing. The edits are done afterward. The remixer 2.0 will allow for adding new pages/chapters into existing books, but to edit the pages, you need to do it manually.

It depends on what you are doing.

The Remix is stored in your cookies, it is not associated with your account. The new version of the remixer that will be released very soon (it is in beta right now) allows you to save your remix and a file so you can share it between computers and with other people.

Not sure if this would work, but if you enable sync on your browser, it is possible that it will synchronize the cookies. Then you would see the changes on any computer as long as you are logged into your browser.

The UALR page didn't have the {{template.ShowCategory()}}, it was just an empty page (not sure why). It is fixed now.

<figure> code

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

I have been asked to explain the significance (impact) of the "new <figure> system" that some of you have noticed on the platform recently.

The <figure> system is the HTML5 code (read that as new/future standard) for semantic representation of images. This allows us to tie in the figure caption to the figure so that they cannot be broken (e.g., by a page break in printing PDFs), which is the primary reason we adopted it. It has several pluses too. It acts as a <div> that we can control over the entire site via CSS which allows for a standardization - this applies to the <figcaption> text that is tied to the <figure> code. It also provides a semantic background for the image so that google and others can tie the figcaption to the figure. We have something similar for each attachment, but this is in the html code directly. That means it is good for SEO and it is where the future lies with online publishing (i.e., most of the web).

I added a modify version of this text with images to the Construction Guide:

Re: tables

Josh Halpern
 

I have many of the same issues with various tables.  Among other things being able to control the vertical height, separately being able to set all borders on a table cell (top, bottom, right left) would all be handy.

Re: Remixed text footnotes/references keep old numbering system #remix #referencing

Dorte Madsen
 

Thanks for pointing this out. When students transfer material numbering of references, figure numbers, and similar often end up being hard coded in as in this text. In your edited page you can simply change "28" to "1" so it doesn't look so strange.
