    Title Your Page

    The uniform LibreTexts title format pages is 

    "XX.YY: title"

    where

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

    If the title has a colon it in (other the then 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 preserve the automatic equations/figure/table numbering that work off of the title of the page.

    1. Title your Chapter with 1.0: First Page for now. The Mindtouch Editor arranges pages and chapters alphabetically therefore we use numbers followed by fullcolins and a space to keep things in order
    2. Click Save.

    Now click on the edit button and we can start writing the book
