What problem does this solve?[edit]

Exporting wiki pages can be done in many ways such as saving the page, printing it, or converting it to a document (PDF, doc ... etc). However, sometimes there is a need to create a single document or a book that contains a few wiki pages that cover one subject.

What is the solution?[edit]

Confused by the book tool? See this video guide on how to create a book!

By using Book extension, it becomes possible to add multiple wiki pages and create, organize, and format a single file without the need to deal with individual wiki pages.

General considerations[edit]

  • The book extension should be already installed on the wiki
  • The book extension works only on pages of a single wiki project
