Wikiversity or Wikibooks?[edit]

Recently (Aug 2016) I've been developing an article on the issue of file descriptor leaking (it's a Unix/Linux programming thing). It's written less like a book, but more like a study note intended for people in confusion. So I guess it should go to Wikiversity right? Dannyniu (discusscontribs) 14:49, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

If it's an original work like a thesis, it's undoubtedly for the Wikiversity. Otherwise, I would say that it depends on if you could integrate your material in an existing book or course. But the Wikiversity recommends to present it to be teachable: one hour per page. JackPotte (discusscontribs) 17:29, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Strange Pretty Pages[edit]

Hi again!

My work page suddenly changed to one in another style the other day. The page addresses are characterized by an extra .m in the name. For example, the pages start with https://en.m.wikibooks.org/ instead of just https://en.wikibooks.org/...

I must have missed all the info on it. Can anybody please steer me to it?

@Armchair: That would be the mobile version of the site you're seeing. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 11:59, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Page Breaks for Print Version[edit]

Hi!

Can anybody please tell me; is it possible to add page breaks to a print version?

Armchair (discusscontribs) 10:16, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

@Armchair: there are {{Page-break}} and {{-}}. JackPotte (discusscontribs) 14:43, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
