How to create arbitrary page references

Jump to: navigation, search

When referencing pages in the Morgan Report, you can create special pages that display the pages you're interested in as a single web page.

To do this, follow the following steps:

  • Indicate your page reference in the document you're editing as follows:
[[<start page>-<end page>]]

So if you wanted to create a special page for pages 873-892, you would use:

[[873-892]]
  • After saving the page with the reference, click on the red link presented, and do the following:

(Remember that the original book was opened to show a double page -- the left-hand page always had an even number (like 406) and the right-hand page was an odd number (like 407). Those two pages were scanned in a single sweep. That's why the beginning number for any arbitrary portion of the report must be an even number, and the ending number must be odd)

    • Your true start page must be an even number. For a start page that is already an even number, use that number as your "true" start page. For any start page which is an odd number, you must make the "true" start page into an even number by subtracting 1 to make it the next lower even number.
    • Your true end page must be an odd number. For an end page that is already an odd number, use that number as your "true" end page. For any end page which is an even number, you must make the "true" end page into an odd number by adding 1 to make it the next higher odd number.
  • Insert the following code into your newly created reference page:
{{Page Nav|previous=<tsp-2>-<tsp-1>|next=<tep+1>-<tep+2}}
----
{{<tsp>-<tsp+1>}}
...
{{<tep-1>-<tep>}}
----
{{Page Nav|previous=<tsp-2>-<tsp-1>|next=<tep+1>-<tep+2}}

For example, for 873-892, the true start page would be 872, and the true end page would be 893. The code would look like the following:

{{Page Nav|previous=870-871|next=894-895}
----
{{872-873}}
{{874-875}}
{{876-877}}
{{878-879}}
{{880-881}}
{{882-883}}
{{884-885}}
{{886-887}}
{{888-889}}
{{890-891}}
{{892-893}}
----
{{Page Nav|previous=870-871|next=894-895}
