Hi Pressbooks community,
I’m looking to migrate an existing book into PB, and one thing I am wrestling with is the structure/navigation hierarchy. The book I have is organized into units, chapters and readings, and so far my chapters map naturally to PB parts, and readings map to PB chapters. (The readings-as-chapters mapping is especially nice because PB chapters track contributors so well.) My problem is that I haven’t run into anything that will let me express the “unit” grouping – either one more level of hierarchy up, or the ability to nest PB parts.
I’m wondering if anyone has had a similar problem, and ideally whether they’ve found a solution, say another plugin or some interesting hack using PB parts and CSS? In my book, the unit will need to have content (much like a PB part), but what’s most important is the ToC, and specifically how the print export version looks.
- Preface - Introduction - Unit 1 - Chapter 1 - Reading 1.1 - Reading 1.2 - Chapter 2 - Reading 2.1 - Unit 2 - Chapter 3 - Reading 3.1 - Reading 3.2
I hope this is clear, and I appreciate any help. I’m loving Pressbooks so far, this really feels like what an online reading and publishing platform ought to be. Thanks!
