Re: How to add Front and Back matter to a book that lacks them

Delmar Larsen
 

If the book is public and the coverpage is set, then you get an option to add them in the Developer panel of the sidebar. They also are generated when we compile.

Re: Videos integrated into Applied Calculus by David Lippman, Dale Hoffman, Shana Calaway

Delmar Larsen
 

We are starting to look at an internal solution to stream videos where we can:

  1. Ensure the video's integrity is preserved (it doesn't get taken down) and
  2. Not monetize the videos (e.g. ads).

The system we are looking at is a modified drupal/H5P interface that would resemble our H5P repo server (https://studio.libretexts.org).

The downside is that if a video is not owned by a user that it must be OER to embed inside this new system. That means many youtube videos cannot be harvested into this new system. But, nothing says that we cannot keep on co-using youtube.

I will know more about this in the near future.

The issue with the videos in the Lippman Applied Calculus text is that they are currently hosted on a site without https security, so they are not loading (at least in Chrome).

 

I was able to download the first video on the following page, upload it to my area of the LibreTexts DigitalOceans server and made it work.

See:

https://math.libretexts.org/Bookshelves/Calculus/Applied_Calculus_(Calaway_Hoffman_and_Lippman)/03%3A_The_Integral/3.06%3A_Area_Volume_and_Average_Value

 

But, I am not sure it's best to place these videos in my "bucket" on this site.  I think they should be hosted in a more general area that others could access, add to and curate.

 

It may be helpful to have it organized by discipline, course and textbook, so it's easy to locate these videos that may correspond to various textbooks in the LibreText collection.

 

I'd be glad to have access to this new "server"/"bucket" on the DigitalOceans site to add some of these videos and at least be able to curate them.

 

But it seems that this process of downloading videos from the current hosting site, uploading them to our server and then adjusting the URLs in the sections of this textbook would be a great project for a student to do, with some oversight to verify that they are getting it to work well.

 

By the way, who created this integration of the videos into the textbook?  I can find the PDF of this textbook but it does not have any mention of the videos.  I see there are videos mentioned in the Lumen Learning platform, but I don't know if the videos were integrated into the book there or not.  Perhaps whoever did the original integration might have an interest in this project, and perhaps they might have access to a faster way of transferring the videos to our server than downloading and uploading them one at a time.

 

Are there many other books in our libraries that have videos integrated into them like this?  It looks pretty nice in this book, from what I have seen so far.

 

Thanks!

Title page glitch #bugs #Formatting

Anna Mills
 
Edited


I put a cover image on my book's title page, but there's a script automatically in the HTML that seems to be overriding part of the image with a search box, feedback icons, and I'm not sure what else.  If I Zoom out far enough, these elements no longer cover the image. I imagine the script is important to the printing of the book or else I would try deleting it... 
What should I do?  Thanks much!!!


Re: How to use the autonumberer correctly

Anna Mills
 

Ah, I didn't realize that--good to know.


Re: How to use the autonumberer correctly

Delmar Larsen
 

I need to test that out. I typically do not recommend remixing parts of books. But, instead pull in the entire text.


Re: How to use the autonumberer correctly

Anna Mills
 

I think I figured it out, at least partially.  The Guide Depth is relative to whatever I choose to remix. If I set it to 1, any element of what I'm remixing will be a chapter. When I remix a whole book, the Guide Depth in the autonumberer settings should be set to 1 so that the chapters stay as chapters but anything below that depths is a page.
However, when I'm remixing just a chapter, I need to set the Guide Depth to 0 so that the chapter pages don't get turned into chapters.  Is that right?  

Somehow now some of my chapters have pages that just have a single number prefix and others have the chapter number, followed by a period, followed by the page number.  Is there an efficient way to standardize this using the remixer?

Thanks!

How to use the autonumberer correctly

Anna Mills
 

I want to move two chapters to earlier in my book, and am afraid to use the autonumberer incorrectly.  What do I need to set the Guide Depth at so that my chapter pages don't get automatically converted to chapters in themselves? That was happening yesterday, though I tried it a few ways.

Also, since I initially entered all the numbers manually will they still update correctly and the URLs as well so that everything shows up in the right order?

Thanks!

Re: How to create a redirect #remix

It worked!  It also removed the original page from the original chapter hierarchy as I hoped it would.  Here's the code I used, after decoding the URL:
