Creating Book Pages
I am a new user and I am still not familiar with how to correctly create pages in a book. I received this as a comment: Pages should be created as a subpage - e.g,. "Book Name" and "Book Name/Chapter Name" and NOT as "Chapter Name".
Renaming Book Pages
How do I rename a Book Page? When I change the name of the Book Page, it seems that the link to the old page is broken and I have copy the old content to the new page that was created as a result of renaming. TIA!
- @Rjbfigueroa: Can you give an example of a page you wanted to move, and where you wanted to move it to, so we can see what happened?
Fwiw, here's how to move a page, if you're using Vector skin (in the desktop interface, rather than the mobile one): View the page you want to move (not its talk page). There should be a control bar at the top of the browser, and way over on the far right of it there should be a dropdown menu. The only option on that menu should be either "rename" or "move"; use that. --Pi zero (discuss • contribs)

Linking to a Greek Wikibook
A page "https://el.wikibooks.org/wiki/Αισθητήρια_Συστήματα" could not be found on "elwikibooks". The external client site "elwikibooks" did not provide page information for page "https://el.wikibooks.org/wiki/Αισθητήρια_Συστήματα".
I think that "elwikibooks" may have problems correctly recognizing wiki-book entries, such as https://el.wikibooks.org/wiki/%CE%91%CE%B9%CF%83%CE%B8%CE%B7%CF%84%CE%AE%CF%81%CE%B9%CE%B1_%CE%A3%CF%85%CF%83%CF%84%CE%AE%CE%BC%CE%B1%CF%84%CE%B1
- @Thomas.haslwanter: Wikidata accepted the name when copy-and-pasted from the title on the el.wb page; the trouble was that it needed the actual characters, rather than the URL escape sequence for them. The other way to handle interwikis is through wiki markup; and en.wb doesn't remove on-page interwikis just because wikidata also has the information; so I added those to the book page here, as well. --Pi zero (discuss • contribs) 00:49, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
