Welcome to Whiteknight's Book Creator page. This page contains a number of tools or "gadgets" to help with editing, creating, and modifying books. For more information, see the note at the bottom of this page.
All tools on this page should be considered experimental, use at your own risk
Book Creator Gadget (Version 2.01)
To start creating a new book, type the name of your book in this box, and some text will be preloaded for you.
If the words "NEW BOOK AVAILABLE" do not appear at the top of the edit window, the book already exists. You can try again with a new title, or you can contribute to the pre-existing book.
Template Creator Gadget (Version 1.10)
To start creating a new book header template, type the name of your book in this box, and some text will be preloaded for you.
If the words "TEMPLATE AVAILABLE" do not appear at the top of the edit window, the template already exists. You can try again with a new title. For best results, give your new template the same name as your book, such as Template:BOOKNAME.
Visual Book Designer
Use the outlining tool below to create a new book. Click the book title to rename it. Click Subpages to add new pages to the book. Click Headings to add page headings.

You must install User:Whiteknight/designer.js to interact with this element. Installation instructions located at User:Whiteknight/Book Designer Gadget.
Categorization Gadget (Version 2.06)
To properly categorize your new book, enter the title of your book below and click "Categorize". Once you have categorized your book, you can click "Display" to see the appropriate wiki code. Click "Edit" to open an edit window containing the categorization templates.
You can install this gadget by following the instructions below.
This page represents an effort of mine to use various tools, including esoteric MediaWiki features and custom Javascripts, to help with creating and editing books. MediaWiki was historically designed for use with Wikipedia, and as such it needs a little creative help to adapt it for use with books and other multi-page information resources. All of the tools on this page require the user to load one or more of my custom javascripts for complete or partial functionality. The first two gadgets, my "Book Creator" and "Template Creator" can be used without Javascript, although some features will be missing.

All these tools are available as a gadget and can be easily installed on your account. See User:Whiteknight/Javascripts (Page)  for details.

These Gadgets, including the Javascript, Wikitext components, documentation, etc. are released under the terms of the GFDL with no invariant sections, no front cover text and no back cover texts.
