Cloning of books


#1

Now we can clone a book in a new and fresh book.

I use https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/cloner/ where I can close in a new fresh book or to delete an old one by writing the new information over the old book.

I feature to consider for the future maybe.


#2

So you mean: you would like the option of replacing an existing book using our tool instead of just creating a new one?


#3

Yes. It would be great to offer both options. As some times I have a book but I need to remplace it with a new one.


#4

It’s not on our road map for the foreseeable future, but pull requests are always welcome.


#5

one step at a time, but I hope so.

@ned and @colomet – what happens to the reserved URL when a book is deleted from a Pressbooks catalog? Does that URL get freed up for reuse after a certain amount of time? If so, could you a) delete the existing (old) book, and then b) clone the book to the previously reserved URL?


#7

Yes, in the same moment you delete the url, is available again.

Is a good question as Wordpress.com do not alow to use the same URL again. but here, you have more freedom.
