Subject: Error Message When Trying to Fork a Specific Page
To: info <info@...>



Hello Delmar,

I have been in the process of working on making updates to a book in my Sandbox and every time I try to fork the page that was originally derived from:


I get the following message. I have tried importing the same page from other books in campus bookshelves that use the same page and I get the same message.


As an example, I imported this page into my sandbox:


from 


and I receive the same error message.

Once again, any page that seem to be originally derived from 


generates the same error message.

Could you let me know if you were able to fix this or if there is a solution.

Thanks,
LL

Generally speaking if there are problems, going to html and cutting and pasting the html works.

Several things to unpack there. You have time to chat?


Cut & paste from within LibreTexts

Suzanne Wakim
 
Edited

I'm pulling from a bunch of pages to a single page. I can't transclude & fork because there are multiple pages.  In the past, I was able to cut/paste and it worked well  But, lately this strategy hasn't been working. The text comes over with all sorts of weirdness. 

I copied from this page and then to this page. In this case, these are both books I can edit, so I could copy/paste the code directly (although that didn't work either).  But, I'm trying to figure this out when pulling from a book I don't have edit access to.

What am I doing wrong?

I fixed your name. Sorry.

I will make an author bar for you so you can label those pages properly. Give me a few hours.

Thanks Delmar.  Please note  that my last name is misspelled .  it is Kleiman, not Kleinman. 

Could I also have my name as an individual (not as a group)  to label the pages I wrote from scratch?

Valeria:

I created a UFL course shell for you and moved your book into it.

https://chem.libretexts.org/Courses/University_of_Florida/CHM2047%3A_One-Semester_General_Chemistry_(Kleinman)

I ran a multi-check bot over the book and then compiled it so you can have the export options you may like (give it 5 minutes). The book is public and your students can view it if you give the URL out (or embed into your LMS).

You can continue to edit in the new location without limitation.

Cheers,

Delmar


moving out of the sandbox #courseshells

kleiman@...
 

Hi:  Im new at this and I'm not sure how to proceed. I am working on a book for my class. I wrote some pages on my own and included most  pages from other libretexts.  My version of the book is not 100% ready, but classes start  next week and I'd like to have it  "published" but continue to work on it.  Is this possible? 

or another option is to publish some chapters and add more chapters later , as they become ready, is this also possible?

Re: request resource for Biology Library #Resources

Delmar Larsen
 

Yes. The new sidebar that we rolled out a few days ago allows us to customize content on it. We just needed to get a list of what is desired. We will look into this next week.

If you want any other specific resources on the sidepanel, please let us know (this applies to all libraries of course).

Re: Gridline in table? #templates #Figures #Formatting

moja@...
 

I've been thinking about this, and looking at my tables on LibreTexts and the PDF.  I would like if gridlines were standard, and then developers had the option to remove them.  I, personally, find tables more understandable with gridlines.

Re: license option #librefest

Josh Halpern
 

Copyleft is not a license in the sense of Creative Commons at least according to this


and this


That being said, it looks as if you can use the GPL as the equivalent and simply put the symbol at the bottom of the pages if you want.

Side note: we contacted the author and the text is his.  The images are problematic, but we are not using those without confirming the original source.

Re: license option #librefest

Suzanne Wakim
 

Our last email with him basically said "yes it's mine but my grant ran out so I can't be bothered to deal with it any more."  He's not going to do any more work on it (as far as I can tell).


Re: license option #librefest

Delmar Larsen
 

Yeah that is possible. There is no such license though. If you are in communication with them, you may want to ask if they are interested in adopting a more formalized "copyleft" license like CC NC 4.0 instead (I think that exists, although almost everyone wants a BY clause).

It is when your account is set for giving you that permission.



My real question is what is the best practice for integrating a glossary while building a lab manual?  I was thinking I could just copy an existing one, and then modify the table to fit my needs.  So my second question is where is a good general chemistry glossary?

I have several already put together for gen chem that you can work with. Give me a day to find where they are.

Re: Basic question about building a book

Delmar Larsen
 

Yes. Same code, but different presentation. The tabbed version lets you show the page in different ways (E.g., popularity, tags, etc), most of which I deactivated for users. The second is when you select "Single" for the Guide listing on the page settings.
