The OSCI Toolkit authoring tools provide a custom content type titled "Section". This content type is used to store content (a section could be considered a chapter in a typical book) and should be used when adding content to a publication.

Step 1

To get started proceed to the "Add Content" section of the Drupal installation. Here you will see a list of content types, similar to the following:

Step 2

Select the content type titled "Section":

Step 3

After selecting the "Section" content type a form will appear that allows for the content entry.

  • The "Administrative Title" is used as an internal identifier and not represented in the publication.
  • The "Title" field is used when creating the final publication.
  • The "Subtitle" field is utilized by ePub generator and some of the web themes
  • The "Thumbnail" field is used to represent a section a graphic. This is utilized in certain web themes.
  • The "Body" field is where the section content is entered. Content can be pasted into this field from programs like Microsoft Word and it will attempt to standardize the formatting. If content is pasted from Word, the formatting should be reviewed to ensure the output of the section looks as intended.
  • More information on entering Figures can be found here: Adding Figures
  • More information on entering Footnotes can be found here: Adding Footnotes

The "Revision Information" tab at the bottom can be used for revision management. The OSCI Toolkit will display the most recent published revision by default. It will also allow for links to previous revisions to work in the web view.

Step 4

Finally click "Save".


After saving this section it can be added to a Publication. To add it to a publication see the Creating a Publication documentation.
