Re: #remix Images missing from remix across libraries #remix

I’ll also tag on to your thread here about Remixer challenges (I hope thats ok). 

When I remixed from this page:

I ended up with a clone that doesn’t show the chapters on the main page unless I am logged in with my personal account.

Any idea why that is? Almost seems like a privelidge access issue, but I haven’t put any restriction on the page.

Also, even when I do see the chapter pages (when logged in to my account), the chapters don’t show the pages within the chapters from the book view. Here is the original page that I remixed from (see red circles for the preview of what’s inside the chapter): 

And the remixed page when logged in:

Is there a preference to turn on to get the chapter squares to show the preview of what pages are within the chapter?

If you have suggestions I would appreciate it. Also, my account is created in the Engineering library, but I hope to pull most of the material for this shell from the Chemistry library. It looks like I should have no problems reaching across libraries as long as I continue to reload the New Remix map that I started on. However, if there are reasons I should locate my account/sandbox/shells in the Chemistry library instead, that would probably be good to know now.

Attributions?

Mark Baillie
 

Hi all - I'm working with a group of colleagues on the Summer Institutes Libretext. There is only an attribution for me right now. Is there a way I can add attributions for the others that are working on the book? When I go in the drop down menu for Authors in the page settings, none of my collaborators are in that drop down (yet).

Also, is it possible to move the attribution to the bottom of the page instead of the top?

Here is the book we are all working in:
https://socialsci.libretexts.org/Bookshelves/Education_and_Professional_Development/Mobile_Summer_Institute_on_Scientific_Teaching/Generic/2020_MoSI

Thanks - Mark

You can do this in the html...I have never figured a way to do this simply using the editor.

In html you can set it in the List Item tag for the question as:

<ol start="4">

  <li>Speedwalk Stu</li>

  <li>Saunterin’ Sam</li>

  <li>Slowpoke Rodriguez</li>

</ol>


Each of your items will start with <ol> - just insert the start="4".  Also - make sure to include the quotation marks

Hi everyone,

I'm working on a text right now that has questions listed as 1-7 for example but with have a text break after the third or fourth question, and I cant figure out how to add the non question text and keep the numbering accurate to the original source. The numbering automatically resets to 1. Is there anyway to get around that and force the question number to be a different one?

Thank you,
Jasmine Keane

Chapter disappears when I try to add new chapter via reremix tool #remix

Breanna Yang <brsyang@...>
 

Hi everyone,

When I tried to add a new chapter via the reremix tool, one of the chapters previously there disappears.  The sections/pages within are still there, but the name changes and the text in the chapter itself also disappears.  When I clicked add to server on the reremixing tool, I am sure the page said nothing would be deleted, and one page would be added.  I am not sure what I am doing to cause pages to disappear.  It has happened to me twice before. Is there a limit to how many chapters can be in a book?

Thank you,
Breanna Yang


Re: Formatting and Remixer #Formatting

Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

It is best to make pages up in the Remixer since it handles a few issues than just manually making pages. The primary issues will be:

  • If a Chapter Page, make sure it has {{template.ShowOrg()}} on it
  • If a Chapter page, set the page to show "simple" in the page settings under the thumbnail
  • Select Topic Hierarchy.

Re: #Formatting #accessibility How to Link Definition to vocabulary? #Formatting #accessibility

It is in the works. I think the last estimate was to expect a prototype in 4 weeks.

Hi everyone,

In the project I am working on, the original document provides definitions to vocabulary terms if you hover/click on the term.  I was wondering if there is a similar function on LibreText? Or if there is not an exact replica, what are some ways to link a term to its definition? It seems like a very useful function.
