It worked!  Thanks, Josh!  I wasn't going to the page with the anchor on the search screen first.

Re: A way to search inside a specific LibreTexts book

Thanks, Josh.  I am not familiar with Duck Duck Go but will check it out.
The page I read was https://www.askdavetaylor.com/how_to_google_site_search_look_constrain_subdirectory/

I was able to get a list of pages from my book that reference fallacies by putting this search string into Google to look for results with my name as author in the URL:

fallacies site:libretexts.org inurl:Mills

There are two ways of doing this. One is to use the advanced search page


Another (which is the one Anna pointed to is to use search operators in the search line in google.com


you can create complex search strings using the operators that are given in her link.

For restricting the search to libretexts I have had better luck with duck duck go than google

Hi Michelle,

Having established the anchor, in the editor select the text you want to link to the anchor, then click on the link symbol in the blue editor bar or go <cntl> K. The dialog will appear

Fill in the url for the page with the anchor you want (you can use the search to find the url by entering the title of that page). Pull down the menu from Jump to anchor or section, and click on the section or anchor. All sections labelled by headings will appear as well as all anchors. Once you get the hang of the Search and Browse it is pretty easy

Hi all,

I saw in a webinar sometime how to anchor, but I can't figure it out now.  I've created an anchor and named it, but I don't know how to link to it from another section of the text.  I'm not sure where to look in the Construction Guide or the training pages; can someone point me in the correct direction?  Right now, I'm just linking back to the whole page.  

Thanks!

If you scroll to the bottom of the link menu, there's a section that says "Jump to anchor or section:"

If you open that drop down menu, there's a section for any anchors on the selected page.

Then you just select the anchor you want and click save link.
The construction guide mentions it, but it's kind of hidden in the equations section:

I may have to reapply a different CSS on that page to avoid this. Keep a record of it and we can review later on.

Definition lists and toggling #Formatting

smmuller@...
 

A couple of the books I've harvested recently use definition lists for some of their terms. LibreTexts formats anything with the <dl> tag so it starts out collapsed, and toggles if you click it. It doesn't look right on some of the pages.

For example, on this page:

https://eng.libretexts.org/Under_Construction/Think_Complexity%3A_Exploring_Complexity_Science_with_Python_(Downey)/04%3A_Scale-free_networks/4.06%3A_Generating_BA_graphs

The sections for "targets:" and "repeated_nodes:" start out collapsed.

You have to click them to get the description.

 

Usually collapsed definition lists are also blue like a link as a hint to click them, but the <code> format for these terms makes them gray, so it's kind of easy to miss.
Is there a way to modify how definition lists are formatted on a specific page or section of text? Or should I just change the format to something like bullet point lists instead?


Re: Refresh the book

Grewal, Mandeep
 

Hi Delmar, yes, please give Suzanne and me the ability to force compile because we might need it next month as we are rushing to finalize the book before the June 1 deadline. 
Regards,
Mandeep. 


Re: Refresh the book

Delmar Larsen
 

The book needs to be compiled". This happens automatically on a one-week period since it is time-intensive and CPU-intensive. We can provide you the ability to force compile if you want it.

Re: Table Accessibility #accessibility

Grewal, Mandeep
 

Yes, got it. Why didn't I think of the right click? 
Thank you, Delmar. 


Re: Table Accessibility #accessibility

Delmar Larsen
 

Right click on the table for its properties. You will find the answer in there. If you still need assistance, I will address tomorrow.


Table Accessibility #accessibility

Grewal, Mandeep
 

Hello, I have created a table in the Cardiovascular system section. Table 1 was already there; I inserted table 2. I cannot create the top row looking like the top row of table 1. I am also worried that all tables have regular text in the row and column headers. Shouldn't they be special headers like we create in the word document and the Canvas rich textbox? Also, I cannot find the alt text option for the tables. Could you direct me to a resource where I can learn more about Libretext tables? 
Thank you,
Mandeep.

You can download a range of export options under the blue Download button, if the book is compiled by the dev team.

Thanks, Delmar!  This is wonderful!  I didn't think there would be so many examples available.  I will definitely explore the new instance once that's ready.
