    Hello, I am sorry but I am not planning to maintain this module any more. If anybody wants to maintain it please make a few pull requests via GitHub and then I will transfer the ownership of this entry.

    Hello Sir,
    I am using moodle 2.1 version. I have installed modbook plugin. And I added one book to the course. Then I am trying to add bulk chapter to book. But, I didn't find option "importing chapter into book : 'import'" in editing chapter page. But, in this documentation they mentioned. I am adding courses, books and chapters as Administrator. Please help for this issue.

    Description should be modified to say "The book module is included in core from Moodle 2.3 onwards."

    also was wondering if it can be made into a light/shadow box type of plug ing where you dont have to leave the course page to view. similar to the "Grid Format Course ? Just an idea with a chapter section to the right and a left and right arrow for navigation. just an idea im no programer but i this this would be a powerful tool for students.

    I've inherited a large, heavily hacked moodle site and I am upgrading the book module in preparation for whole-moodle upgrade. I need to find a complete copy of Book version 2011032000, then I will identify the hacks and make decisons about what to do in the latest version.

    This version was in release 2.0rc (20110320) and it doesn't appear to be available via git. Where or how do i obtain a clean, vanilla copy?

    FYI - I created a PowerPoint VB macro for exporting PowerPoint slides for importing into a book. The PowerPoint Slide Titles are passed to the Book Module and the slides are saved as PNG images. You can find it at:

    Question on the Book plugin. I have a 1.9.5 moodle installation using the book plugin. I'm trying to go thru the upgrade process to get moodle more current. The first step is going to moodle 1.9.19. I installed the 1.9 version of the Book plugin and set it up. Now when I restore a lesson, all the pages are right justified and the left navigation/table of contents is center justified on the page. How to change this so the left navigation/table of contents is at the top of the page and the page is left justified for all the text?

    I'm wondering if rather than a link on the topic page if the book can actually be embedded? (the actual content with the arrows, etc) so that the user doesn't have to click on a link to open the book..

    If I have Book installed as a plugin in 2.1 and have courses that use it, how do I best go about upgrading to 2.5.1? What happens to the books inside my courses if I uninstall the plugin?
