Who can see your viewing activity?
We have a guide with respect to which H5P elements do not have issues. You can find it in the developers section on our website - asccc-oeri.org
Does it only appear for those with the same library? The campus hub
JoEllen, yes, the campus hub is by library.
As LibreTexts grows, it might make sense to divide the Campus bookshelves by state... there are already a lot of colleges to scroll through!
Yes... we have been talking about that. We are on the same wavelength
I cannot click on Construction Guide
On the side panel? Click on the chapter instead.
Where is the spreadsheet?
Is there a link to a template of the textbook map?

Will the remixer handle renumbering things within each page such as definitions and theorems when chapters are moved around?
Can you make a Chapter 0?
Great question. That works oursite of the Remixer. They track the number in the title.. that is why I emphasized that an hour ago
Yes, via the Autonumber options
If you were having issues accessing the Construction Guide when you 1st got into the remixer, the issue has been fixed.
Is there a limit to the number of "remixer" texts we can make for ourselves?
Does each library have its own text map template?
Who can see it after you post it to the server?
It saves to your sandbox

transclude and fork? define pleae
Did I miss what ‘forking’ id?
no one outside of dev team
Fork sounds like if you want to modify the content and transclude just copies it.
Transclude - copy without changing. You are pulling the page from the original into your book.
In order to edit, you fork - creating a copy for you that you can edit.
Buzz had it!
Why is transcluding better?
If someone updates the original, you get the fixes.
So if you transclude, you can not later edit?
If you transclude content, can you still change the images that show up for each chapter?
In order to change the page, you have to fork it. You have the make your own copy and change it.
copying content automatically "transclude"? How do you get content to "fork"?
Mong Kon Mo
A Suggestion: If I fork a book and the original is edited, can you add some kind of alert to notify me of the changes?
I meant the icons, so I think based on the demo that it can be changed
I think she is going there - to forking. She needs to show it.
If a mistake is found in the original, and it is fixed, it will only be fixed in transcluded copies
Yes, you can get alerted to changes that were made.
Are you informed when transcluded text is changed?
Right now you have to set it so you are - but that may change. So, the answer today is that you can.
Can you ultimately move the text from your Sandbox to Bookshelves for students to see and use?
Buzz - Yes, absolutely.
This is really great!
Once I have my remixed book in my sandbox, how do I keep track of which book each chapter came from? I can see the author of each chapter, of course, but where do I find the original book title?
Comment on Buzz: I can move it to bookshelves but not to college hub?
Mong Kon Mo
That’s quite a feat! Pulling from all the different formats and being able to create a consistent appearance!
This is all so cool! I can’t wait to jump into my Sandbox to start building. Communication draws on many different disciplines so that is a wonderful tool!
How do you upload our own material from outside of texts in existing Bookshelves?
Can you add original text to these or just copy from existing libretexts?
Alan - You can add in your own content. Building pages will be discussed later. And that answers Hilary’s question as well.
I will be describing how to edit (including adding text) pages next.
If there is a typo, please alert the curator for the library (or Delmar) and we can fix it in the source.
It is possible to transclude a page one subsection at a time.
What about factual errors? Do you try to fix those as well?
There’s a “leave feedback” link at the bottom of each page.
L. Jeanette Green
I get fork, but define transclude again please
Yes, Naomi, as Anna said, the Leave Feedback link is a way to alert the curation team of errors of any kind so they can be fixed in the source.
Thanks Paul and Anna!
Transclude is like shortcuts in PCs, aliases in Macs, or symbolic links in unix
Transclude is when the chapter gets pulled dynamically from the original source each time you load it. So it updates automatically.
Transclude - while you can see a copy, you are just seeing a page that lives somewhere else. So you can’t edit it.
Transclude simply means that your page is a linked copy of the source page. Your page will include section and figure numbering consistent with you book though.
The content that looks like is only the page is stored somewhere else
I think the ways to explain are infinite.
So multiple pages can have the same content
and updating that source page will update the content on all page at the same time

Do you download it to your device to use the template to use it for your specific book to track the mapping for the various chapters
The remixing map is nothing more than notes for you to build your book
it can be an excel, google doc, paper, even toilet paper...
You do not have to use the template. I created one textbook using the template and another textbook from notes I wrote on a piece of paper.
Thanks Del. Is there a download the excel sheet option in 7.2 of the construction guide?
Once the remix is made, it carries no use anymore
refresh your remixer and you will see a link to the chapter. It is on section 7.2
or here is the link
Shanti on this page, there is a link to 'excel' in the paragraph at the top. https://chem.libretexts.org/Courses/Remixer_University/A_Quick_Guide_to_LibreTexts_for_New_Instructors/03%3A_Getting_Started/3.02%3A_Building_Remixing_Maps

How can I delete a book from my sandbox?
Under Options on black bar
How can I search for a specific topic to add to my book?
