Overview[edit]

Please have a look at Extension:Pdf Book. The functionality is pretty much the same. Some people complained that there is no capability for Subcategories. Since I needed this functionality in my company I redesigned the whole thing. Both extensions share the same prerequisites.

Usage[edit]

You will have to add this extension to your Localsettings.php by adding

require_once("extensions/Book.php");

Then you have just to append

?action=bookpdf

or

?action=bookhtml

to your url. You can also use this in templates. Have a look at Extension:Pdf Book for examples.

Notes[edit]

Be aware that this version is only tested for Mediawiki 1.12
