Populating the Table of Contents

L. Glen
 

Hi again (newbie here).
Will my table of contents populate before my book is transferred to a live library? I'm not seeing anything on that page, and I want to know what it's going to look like.

Apparently these expire after a while. Is this channel still going? If so, would you mind posting a new invite link?


Re: Referencing internal objects #mathjax #referencing

Delmar Larsen
 

Try \(\PageIndex{1}\)

This creates a number that is a concatenation of the title number and the number in the argument.

for example. It a page is title "1.3: The Days of My Life"

and you have "in Example \(\PageIndex{4}\), we show..." in the page it will look (in view mode) like

in Example 1.3.4, we show.."

It isn't a hot like like the \ref and \label pair for equations, but we are looking into it (a mathjax limitation).

Does this work for you?


Referencing internal objects #mathjax #referencing

L. Glen
 

Hi all - newbie here...
I'm trying to write, on one page that "in Example N.N.N..." (where that Example is on a different page.

Is there a way to link to that example internally? I'm thinking that if either the page containing the example or the page referring to it gets moved, a static reference could easily be lost; in addition, a hotlink option would be ideal for someone wanting to refresh their memory.

Many thanks!

I may have to update some of the accounts made for students then too? I’ll verify and reach out if there are questions.

I had to change your account (it was in an older formulation). Check now.

Yes, it works!  Thanks!

I am having this problem as well.  Is this related to the way my account was expanded to try the ADAPT and QUERY systems?  Could I be granted permission to use the remixer?
Thanks,

Tables & PDF issue

Suzanne Wakim
 

I noticed a glitch when converting a page to a 2-column PDF.  If a table has a header for the rows (the "first column" box is checked in the table properties).  The header prints twice and looks really weird in the PDF.  I've attached a pdf showing the issue.

Author bar not working for pages remixed in other libraries #remix

smmuller@...
 

I'm remixing across libraries and ran into a problem with the author bar. The original page in the mathematics library has an author bar for Oscar Levin:
After remixing it in a text in the engineering library, the author bar is blank except for the words "Contributed by":
I'm not seeing an option for Oscar Levin in the engineering library's author list. Is there a way to add it, or should I just put the author in a Contributors section at the bottom of the page?


Multiple back browser button steps required

Mark Baillie
 

Hi yall,

I am remixing a page that seems to have an issue, which only appears on certain computers. 

The issue is that when you click on a link, it seems to take you there 2 to 4 times. Here is what I see once I get to the page and right click on the “back” button in my browser for the one that seems to have taken you to Inclusivity 4 times!:


See how it shows the same site for the first 3 back options (that is the site I am currently on). On my browser (chrome on a MacBook Pro), it understands that these are duplicates and hence it sends me back 4 layers there to get back to the actual previous page. However, a colleague of mine has a PC running chrome, and her back browser button takes her back one step, and ends at the same page she is currently on. She has to go back 4 times to actually go back.

This is occurring for some of the pages we have, but not all of them.

Here are the trouble pages:



This is true on all clones we made from this parent site, which also has the same issue for the same 3 pages within it:

Any idea why it is creating these extra steps, and how to get rid of it? We are planning on making another 8 clones of this parent site, so hopefully we can remedy it before doing that.

Thanks!

Re: A way to search inside a specific LibreTexts book

Anna Mills
 

I just searched the Construction Guide using this technique and found very little using Google but much more with Duck Duck Go.  I was looking for information on headers with this search string:

h1 site:libretexts.org inurl:Remixer_University inurl:Construction

Glad to know about Duck Duck Go!

rearrange the chapters on your book via dragging the boxes and then click the "unorder page" button and you will see. This won't affect your book.

That is if you break the alphabetical organization of the chapters in your book (via the drag boxes). The unorder page resets it (this is best for books so that CANVAS pulls in what you see).

We will likely swtich to a different technology and use a bot to change it on all books, but probably sometime this summer after the quarter/year is over and we can breathe a little bit.

I doubt this will be a problem. Give me a few weeks to address or I will hand off to someone to team to get it out there soon. The platform is designed for this flexibility. I just have to flesh out the different table styles.
