Linking across Book Collections


#1

Hie

I am really new to SAB/RAB. I want to know how to create a link to a book in another book collection of the same project, so that when users click on that link, it opens the linked document

I have tried markdown tags, including the book collection but its not working, unless I move the documents to the same collection

Thank you

I’m quoting Ian here: “Using the Markdown format go to Book Id B001 chapter 2

However, when I paste the code into the forum, it disappears…ugh! Here’s a screenshot:

The part between the square brackets can say whatever you want, and it will be highlighted as a link. When the user taps it, it takes you to the page you have designated in the rounded brackets.

Thanks Marty, but this is what I have already done. It works works when the documents are in the same collection, but it’s not working accross different collections

Ok. Sorry that I don’t know the answer to cross-collection links. Another possible solution is to include the book you are referring to in the collection within that app, since you already have the document created. You might even edit the document down to just the page you are referencing. It’s not ideal, but if you need a workaround until a solution is offered, this is one way to do it.

I am going to list is as a bug to be fixed. Though it may not get fixed in the next release.
