Command line PDF export

I have made a few PDF books and it works fine. I need to save them on a regular basis to keep the PDF versions of the books updated. Is it possible to make the export from command line? Regards Jonas

You can call the pdf book export by using the right url. Example:[%22wikipage1%22,%22wikipage2%22]


id = pagid of bookmanager
pdfbook_title = Document's title (in example this was: “Test title: test” (url encoded)
do = export_pdfbook is commando for exporting book
selection = list of pages for exporting in square brackets, quoted and separated by comma

Latex Issue

The bookcreator don't fetch the latex images created by latex plugin. any ideas? — markuman 2011/01/17 12:00

I'm having a similar issue, even though I'm not using the latex plugin. Some images are not included in the generated PDFs… and I can't figure out what is so special about them. Other images show fine. All images that I have uploaded to the wiki are PNGs — FilipeCorreia 2012/08/22 18:11

Should be supported by the dw2pdf plugin, the dependency of this plugin. — Klap-in 2014-07-16

pdf files

Is it possible to embed pdf files in the book ? Would be very nice to be able to do so. Thank you.

Approvals from Publish Plugin?

Is there any way to include the “this page was approved by…” text that is at the top of the pages via the publish plugin?

Therefore the Publish Plugin has to include (optional) information in the content that is exported.
The print preview in your browser shows the content of a page such as that is (normally) included in the pdf.

The Same book with several Users

Is it possible to create a book with multiple users who have the same access to it?

List of pages generated by data or struct plugin aggregation

The list of pages to be exported as saved selection requires an unordered list of page-ids. Everything else is ignored. This gives you the option to add wiki pages one by one, page by page, or alternatively to insert them over an entire namespace and then delete unwanted pages manually. But there is no chance to add pages automatically by other parameters.

Now my idea is to generate the same list of page-ids as saved selection by an aggregation table of the struct plugin. The reason is that I would then be able to filter the relevant entries by some data fields. But this doesn't function, although the list looks visually the same and the HTML content is very similar.

(see also Github: List of pages by data or struct aggregation #130)
