Branding the book

blackjava Hi

I have a couple of questions but I will try this one first.
I just downloaded and rebranded a small cookbook that was made with the same version I am using 4.22.
The owner information is the first page you see. Right now, the only place the new owner information shows up is in the "About" page. How many people ever check that? I know I can do my own "About" page, but when you rebrand, nothing shows up.
So, How do I change the about page and rebrand it? And, how can I get it to show up when some one opens the ebook.

EBookCompiler It depends on how the particular ebook is setup by the author

The author can put rebrandable info on as few or as many pages as he wants.

If the author gives you his ebook/rebrander, you can only insert your info, into the spaces the author provided.

blackjava Ok, that was the question. I am not a technical whiz but can usually follow instructions. I couldn't see where I was able to do any rebranding with the exception of the About page. The help section uses technical terms that are not familiar to every one. What should be available is a more specific explanation of what the different options are with a specific example of the code that could be used for each one. More specifically the add ins and system pages. I can generate a custom page but it still shows up in the "about". I can see no where in the help that tells me how to get that page to show in place of the index page. In the e-Book I have from some one else, the first page up was an introduction and that is where you could rebrand. I don't see how to do that any where.

EBookCompiler We exchanged a couple emails too, but I'm still not really understanding the question

1. If somebody else made an eBook, you can only rebrand the items in the spots that the somebody else made rebrandable.

2. If you make an eBook, you can put rebrandable fields on ANY pages in your eBook (the About page, or any other pages you like).  The technique is shown in the Rebrander Example in Variables and Scripts section of the Help.

I'm still not clear, for example, if you are asking about the 1st or the 2nd situation?

blackjava Hi
I'm getting closer. It was the second situation that I was reffering to. I went thru the help section again and now understand how any page can be rebranded. I didn't realize I could do it within my html documents.

The next question is the variables. In this example, is this a pre defined variable or can I put any variable I want in there? Or can I only use variables that are in the variable list that I see?

This E-Book is introduced to you by [={yourname}]

In other words could I do this?

My dog's name is [={yourdogsname}]

One thing I didn't see is whether its possible to put in a custome picture. Is it possible for some one to enter their own picture?

Thanks for your help.

EBookCompiler You can use any variable names you like. Just make sure the names in the HTML code match up to the names in the Variables tab in the compiler. And remember the names are case sensitive.

The user can't add/remove/update files using the rebrander, so no they couldn't add a new image.  I guess they could give the URL of an image on their web site, which you link to from the SRC attribute of an IMG tag.

blackjava Thanks

I think I have enough information now to move forward.
