There is a preview which shows what your selected articles (only the first N pages) will look like in a printed book.

At this point, your book can be ordered by adding it to the cart and checking out. Available payment methods are MasterCard, Visa and PayPal. Books are printed within 2-3 business days, and shipping takes another 2-10 days.

পিডিএফ সংস্করণ সম্পর্কিত জিজ্ঞাস্য প্রশ্ন[সম্পাদনা]

Why are articles displayed differently than in the browser?[সম্পাদনা]

Books have no scroll bars, while a browser does, so printed content needs to be split up on several pages. To get an acceptable typesetting result, some page elements need to be displayed differently. This may result in some unexpected layouts, especially for tables and parts of wiki articles that use HTML instead of MediaWiki markup.

How can I improve the appearance?[সম্পাদনা]

You can edit the wiki articles themselves to make them print better. See Help for Experts for some ideas.

What is OpenDocument Text?[সম্পাদনা]

The OpenDocument format (ODF) is an XML-based file format originally created and implemented by the OpenOffice.org office suite. It is a free and open OASIS standard aimed to replace the proprietary Microsoft Word file format.

Storing books in this format is useful if one wants to modify the books. This option allows editors to generate arbitrarily styled books with additional content. Teachers may find this useful.

Which software is required to open this file?[সম্পাদনা]

OpenOffice, KOffice or others. There also is an ODF-AddIn for Microsoft Word. Moreover, Microsoft Office 2007 with the latest service pack now supports the OpenDocument format.

Where can I find stored books ?[সম্পাদনা]

All stored books are placed in Category:Wikipedia:Books. There is also a bookshelf which allows users to explore the list of compiled and shared books.

How do the exports comply with license requirements?[সম্পাদনা]

PDF export[সম্পাদনা]

  • link to each article and its version
  • all contributors are mentioned
  • images are linked to their image page on the wiki
    Warning: Authors and licenses of images are not part of the PDF. Therefore, these PDFs cannot be distributed without further manipulation if they contain images.
  • inclusion of the GFDL (English)

In printed books[সম্পাদনা]

  • URL of each article and its version
  • all contributors are mentioned
  • URL of each image
  • all contributors of an image are mentioned
  • license name of the image is mentioned
  • inclusion of the GFDL (English)

Can I use the book tool with my MediaWiki ?[সম্পাদনা]

Yes, the book tool is based on the open source project mwlib. The MediaWiki component Collection extension works out of the box with most MediaWikis and the PediaPress service.

How can I hide the "create a book"-box in the left sidebar ?[সম্পাদনা]

Hide: The box can be hidden by inserting the following into your monobook.css.

#p-coll-create_a_book { display: none; }

Move down: Adding the following code to your monobook.js will move the box to the bottom of the sidebar:

addOnloadHook(function(){
   var book=document.getElementById("p-coll-create_a_book");
   book.parentNode.appendChild(book);
});

Probably there is going to be some kind of gadget to make this easier in the future.

সীমাবদ্ধতাগুলো কী কী?[সম্পাদনা]

Skin support[সম্পাদনা]

The tool currently only works with the "Monobook" and "Modern" skins. There is a simple workaround: switch to Monobook when creating books.

Limitation of the book size[সম্পাদনা]

Currently books can not contain more than 500 articles. Please keep in mind that generation of large PDFs can take a long time and results in high server load. Dividing article collections into multiple books might be a solution.

Infoboxes and large tables[সম্পাদনা]

Infoboxes and other large tables are printed at full page size, not "floated" to the side as on the Web. This is a result of the limited size of A5 paper: if the infobox was shrunk to fit, the text within would be illegible.

CSS & HTML[সম্পাদনা]

CSS and HTML used in the wiki markup are only partially evaluated when generating PDFs. Templates can be adjusted for print to avoid some of the problems, see Help for Experts for details.
