I've just uploaded a very very early development release of an eBook exporting plugin for WordPress. It's not ready for prime time. The codes not commented, its not feature complete and its very very messy with some embarrasing bits thrown in too.
Anyway, it currently takes a category, and saves it as an ePub file that may or may not be valid - I based the file it generates on something I downloaded. It seems to work ok in Stanza for iPod Touch.
I'm planning to support MobiPocket, DocBook, PDF, TXT and HTML.
- Automatically generate eBook as chapters are published
- Other mentioned formats
- Saving informaton about the eBooks (currently you have to fill out the form each time)
- Reordering chapters --currently based on date
- Ability to include pages like forword, dedication
To use, just upload the unzipped folder to your WordPress wp-content/wp-plugins folder. Be sure to chmod /eBooks/ to 0777 or change the permissions so its writable by PHP. It requires PHP 5.2 or higher. Then activate the plugin. To create the eBook, go Tools -> Create eBook and fill in the form. Chapter Category takes the ID of the category that contains your chapters - will make that a drop down soon. Then submit the form and it will give you a URL.
Note: Since its very very early days, bug reports probably won't help at this point unless the ePub file is wrong.
