Black Static 25 now live on Smashwords and uploaded to Fictionwise. Interzone #236 should be live on F'wise now but as usual there is no sign.

On S'words the PC emulator shows the Kindle version of Black Static 25 working better than the EPub where I can't get pages to break in the right place or links to take readers to the intended point after that break.

IZ 236 is already live on S'words.

I'm not exactly an expert, Roy, but I've been up to my ears in epub files lately - happy to have a look if you like.

Interzone 237 now live on Fictionwise. Lavie Tidhar, Douglas Lain, Caspian Gray & Jim Hawkins provide the fiction. still problems with headings, indexes, layout etc. One such is getting the ebook TOC match the text TOC. I've tried various remedies without resolving the problems.

I keep wondering if that was the reason people said various sections were missing from some Pete Bulluck F'wise issues. Maybe the text was there but the TOC did not show it.

No, the text wasn't there. At least not visibly. It's possible it was within the ebook but not being displayed, though - e.g. if those pages were missing from the ebook spine, or (and this would be my guess, based on trying to fix similar stuff in the last few weeks) if the text was swallowed up by a malformed bit of html. I'll go back to one of them and have a look...

I just downloaded a fresh epub copy of Interzone 222 from Fictionwise to have a look. The epub version of that issue was missing Laser Fodder. Opening it up in Sigil, I can see that the contents page and the epub spine expect to find Laser Fodder on the page Text/Authors-IS222_split_0.html, but that page is empty except for the copyright text.

Searching through the source code of all the pages doesn't turn up the phrase Laser Fodder anywhere but the contents. So I think something just went wrong in the conversion process, and that section of text was completely lost.

So its in the TOC but not in the text? The way I do the ebooks we end up with 2 TOCs one in the side bar, one in the text. Is the Laser Fodder title in both TOCs?

Author:  Rolnikov [ Tue Mar 13, 2012 7:04 pm ]
Post subject: 

Yes, it appears in both contents, and the links work, it's just that the text isn't where the ebook contents pages expect it to be. I don't know if any of that is relevant to the problems you're having with Smashwords, though...

Might be useful for you to know that the contents that appears in the text of your epub file is an xhtml page - just regular text with links to the relevant places; while the contents that appears on the side of Adobe Digital Editions is from the ebook's toc.ncx file.
