Step 2: Navigation

Student View

At the bottom of every screen are two buttons that let you navigate through the book.

The bottom left of the screen is a button that reads ← Previous: [post title]. Clicking this button navigates the reader to the previous page in the book. Similarly, the bottom right of the screen displays a button that reads Next: [post title] → and navigates the reader to the next page in the book when clicked.

These actions can also be executed by using the left and right arrows on your keyboard.

Contents

The best way to find the index of the book is by Clicking the title of the book in the center of the header (ENGLISH GRAMMAR A1 LEVEL). That action would open the cover page with the index of the book.

The table of contents can be used to navigate to any part of the book. It displays in its entirety both on the webbook homepage and as a dropdown menu at the top of every page within the book.

Each part, chapter, and subsection in the book is linked to from the table of contents. Notice that subsections can be collapsed into chapters, and chapters can be collapsed into parts. To expand or collapse content, use the plus and minus signs to the right of the post title. You can also expand or collapse all items in the table of contents by clicking the Show/Hide All Contents button directly above the table of contents.

Chapters that have not been selected to show in web will appear with a lock symbol. You’ll only see these chapters in the table of contents if you are a logged in user with admin permissions for the book. Parts that have no content shown in web will not display at all.

You can always find the TOC organised in alfphabetical order by clicking the CONTENTS button in the left side of the header

Collaborator Area

At the top of every screen are two buttons that let you navigate through the book.

The bottom left of the screen is a button that reads ← Edit Previous:[post type]. Clicking this button navigates the reader to the previous page in the book. Similarly, the bottom right of the screen displays a button that reads Next: [post type] → and navigates the reader to the next page in the book when clicked.

Organize

The dashboard of the Organize menu offers an overview of the structure and content of your book. The view shows you the front & back matter, parts, and chapters of your book you have created and is the main portal to edit and rearrange parts of your book. You can access this dashboard by clicking Organize in the left sidebar in Pressbooks.
