Fix export at wikibooks to PDF, MOBI, ...

  • Problem: Export of Wikibooks to PDF stopped working and this problem is neglected.
  • Proposed solution: Fixing the broken feature + adding one-click export of the book.
  • Who would benefit: Anyone with intermittent access to Internet for various reasons (expensive connection, privacy etc.) I myself had an idea to start such a project on Wikibooks, where (a) many people could add their two cents, (b) young readers' privacy is advised so they could download the document and read it offline away from their parents or friends but absence of offline export - prevented me from using Wikibooks.

  • A complete rework of Collection extension would be better. Currently the PDF export feature of Wikipedia (see w:WP:Books) is also broken.--GZWDer (talk) 21:27, 22 January 2022 (UTC)
  • This seems to work on Wikisource at the moment, perhaps those tools could also be adapted for Wikibooks? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:24, 28 January 2022 (UTC)
