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
Paul Seeburger
02:30:09
JoEllen, yes, the campus hub is by library.
Naomi Bahm
02:30:50
As LibreTexts grows, it might make sense to divide the Campus bookshelves by state... there are already a lot of colleges to scroll through!
delmar@libretexts.org
02:31:20
Yes... we have been talking about that. We are on the same wavelength
Alyse Pittman
02:35:00
I cannot click on Construction Guide
delmar@libretexts.org
02:37:37
On the side panel? Click on the chapter instead.
Helene Payne
02:38:06
Where is the spreadsheet?
Antonio Lopez
02:38:07
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?
Brodney Fitzgerald
02:40:37
Can you make a Chapter 0?
Brodney Fitzgerald
02:40:43
Introductory chapter
delmar@libretexts.org
02:41:07
Great question. That works oursite of the Remixer. They track the number in the title.. that is why I emphasized that an hour ago
delmar@libretexts.org
02:41:19
Yes, via the Autonumber options
Michelle Pilati
02:42:25
If you were having issues accessing the Construction Guide when you 1st got into the remixer, the issue has been fixed.
Brodney Fitzgerald
02:43:01
Thanks
Hilary Altman
02:43:11
Is there a limit to the number of "remixer" texts we can make for ourselves?
Sheila Lynch
02:43:33
Does each library have its own text map template?
Antonio Lopez
02:43:36
Who can see it after you post it to the server?
delmar@libretexts.org
02:44:30
It saves to your sandbox
L. Jeanette Green
02:44:33
transclude and fork? define pleae
Danielle McCabe
02:44:35
Did I miss what ‘forking’ id?
Danielle McCabe
02:44:39
*is?
delmar@libretexts.org
02:44:40
no one outside of dev team
Buzz Piersol
02:44:54
Fork sounds like if you want to modify the content and transclude just copies it.
Michelle Pilati
02:45:03
Transclude - copy without changing. You are pulling the page from the original into your book.
Michelle Pilati
02:45:19
In order to edit, you fork - creating a copy for you that you can edit.
Michelle Pilati
02:45:38
Buzz had it!
Naomi Bahm
02:45:45
Why is transcluding better?
Michelle Pilati
02:46:06
If someone updates the original, you get the fixes.
Danielle McCabe
02:46:24
So if you transclude, you can not later edit?
Naomi Bahm
02:46:31
If you transclude content, can you still change the images that show up for each chapter?
Michelle Pilati
02:46:57
In order to change the page, you have to fork it. You have the make your own copy and change it.
Kim Yee
02:47:21
copying content automatically "transclude"? How do you get content to "fork"?
Mong Kon Mo
02:47:30
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?
Naomi Bahm
02:47:34
I meant the icons, so I think based on the demo that it can be changed
Michelle Pilati
02:47:43
I think she is going there - to forking. She needs to show it.
Bob Belford
02:48:09
If a mistake is found in the original, and it is fixed, it will only be fixed in transcluded copies
Michelle Pilati
02:48:22
Yes, you can get alerted to changes that were made.
Naomi Bahm
02:48:39
Are you informed when transcluded text is changed?
Michelle Pilati
02:49:07
Right now you have to set it so you are - but that may change. So, the answer today is that you can.
Buzz Piersol
02:49:26
Can you ultimately move the text from your Sandbox to Bookshelves for students to see and use?
Michelle Pilati
02:49:36
Buzz - Yes, absolutely.
Buzz Piersol
02:49:49
This is really great!
Anna Mills
02:50:52
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?
Gisela Spieler-Persad
02:51:14
Comment on Buzz: I can move it to bookshelves but not to college hub?
Mong Kon Mo
02:51:26
That’s quite a feat! Pulling from all the different formats and being able to create a consistent appearance!
Armeda Reitzel
02:51:34
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!
Alan Keys
02:51:44
How do you upload our own material from outside of texts in existing Bookshelves?
Hilary Altman
02:51:50
Can you add original text to these or just copy from existing libretexts?
Michelle Pilati
02:52:38
Alan - You can add in your own content. Building pages will be discussed later. And that answers Hilary’s question as well.
Tom Neils
02:52:48
I will be describing how to edit (including adding text) pages next.
Michelle Pilati
02:53:01
Thanks Tom!
Paul Seeburger
02:54:55
If there is a typo, please alert the curator for the library (or Delmar) and we can fix it in the source.
Paul Seeburger
02:55:15
It is possible to transclude a page one subsection at a time.
Naomi Bahm
02:55:22
What about factual errors? Do you try to fix those as well?
Anna Mills
02:55:24
There’s a “leave feedback” link at the bottom of each page.
L. Jeanette Green
02:57:07
I get fork, but define transclude again please
Paul Seeburger
02:57:16
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.
Naomi Bahm
02:57:33
Thanks Paul and Anna!
delmar@libretexts.org
02:57:51
Transclude is like shortcuts in PCs, aliases in Macs, or symbolic links in unix
Anna Mills
02:57:59
Transclude is when the chapter gets pulled dynamically from the original source each time you load it. So it updates automatically.
Michelle Pilati
02:58:03
Transclude - while you can see a copy, you are just seeing a page that lives somewhere else. So you can’t edit it.
Paul Seeburger
02:58:07
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.
delmar@libretexts.org
02:58:08
The content that looks like is only the page is stored somewhere else
Michelle Pilati
02:58:16
I think the ways to explain are infinite.
delmar@libretexts.org
02:58:26
So multiple pages can have the same content
khaas@saintmarys.edu
02:58:30
https://chem.libretexts.org/Courses/Remixer_University/LibreTexts_Construction_Guide/07%3A_Remixing_Existing_Content/7.02%3A_Building_Remixing_Maps
delmar@libretexts.org
02:58:45
and updating that source page will update the content on all page at the same time
L. Jeanette Green
02:58:53
yes
Shanthi Tharuvai
02:59:38
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
delmar@libretexts.org
03:00:14
The remixing map is nothing more than notes for you to build your book
delmar@libretexts.org
03:00:37
it can be an excel, google doc, paper, even toilet paper...
Tom Neils
03:00:47
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.
Shanthi Tharuvai
03:00:48
Thanks Del. Is there a download the excel sheet option in 7.2 of the construction guide?
delmar@libretexts.org
03:00:52
Once the remix is made, it carries no use anymore
delmar@libretexts.org
03:01:39
refresh your remixer and you will see a link to the chapter. It is on section 7.2
delmar@libretexts.org
03:01:53
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
Michelle Pilati
03:04:53
We’ve compiled LibreTexts resources on our website - https://asccc-oeri.org/libretexts/ - this includes links to LibreTexts videos. If you can’t find what you need, let us know - via oeri@asccc.org - and we’ll develop a resource to help.

How can I delete a book from my sandbox?
delmar@libretexts.org
03:05:55
Under Options on black bar
delmar@libretexts.org
03:05:59
"delete"
Kelly Stack
03:06:45
Thx!
Jessica Padilla
03:06:53
How can I search for a specific topic to add to my book?
