3.10: Page Titles

  • Page ID
  • I wanted to mention the title format that we have adopted on the LibreTexts for pages. Unless impossible to do, it is desired that each page be formatted like this

    "XX.YY: title"


    • XX is the chapter number
    • YY is the section number
    • title is the page title

    If the title has a colon in it (other than the colon after the chapter.section combo), please convert it to a dash.

    Several exceptions to this format include:

    • Chapter Summaries: "XX.S: Chapter Title (Summary)"),
    • Chapter Exercises: "XX:.E Chapter Title (Exercises)" and
    • Section Subpages (avoid if possible), which should be then indicated by adding a letter (alphabetically). e.g., "4.3A: Cats are cute" and "4.3B: Dogs are cute" are both subsections to section/page "4.3: Animals are cute"

    This approach preserves the curation and Remixing ability of the pages. It also preserves the automatic equation/figure/table numbering that uses the title of the page.

    As an example of this approach, here is a snippet of the organization of a Bio text:

    BIS 103: Bioenergetics and Metabolism (Callis)
