Multiple Uses of Content

I am making a book out of all the blogs I’ve posted from 2018. I’ve added all the posts as chapters to a book, but would like to use that content in multiple books or booklets, sometimes with the same chapters. Is there a way to do that easily? I want to keep my options open for using these chapters in different books.


Hi Michael

Your question caught my interest. So I searched for „Wordpress Multisite“ and „post to several sites“ as Pressbooks is based on Wordpress Multisite install. I found the following. No idea if that helps. Also no idea if the posts get updated if you update the mother post (single source).

Hi Michael,

The easiest way to syndicate content would probably be to export selected chapters from a single book (choose the Pressbooks XML file option) and reimport into a new book shell (‘Tools’->‘Import’), selecting the Pressbooks/WordPress XML option. If you’re on an EDU or self-hosted network you could also use the cloning routine to bulk clone/copy a book and simply remove the chapters you didn’t want. Hope that helps?

Helps tons, thanks SteelWagstaff. I’m new to this self-publishing, though I learned enough using PB to complete a book and get it published. On Amazon now.

Time for this next project.
