This link on Drupal's web site http://drupal.org/node/view/253 gives a hierarchical list of all the chapters/pages in a book.

How is this "table of contents" created in Drupal? Just plain HTML or what?

Comments

The index is created by Drupal according to every new book page you create.
The first page should belongs to the root and the other pages in the book should belong to these first side. Just give it a tray and you will find out.

Thanks for the reply.

"The first page should belongs to the root"
What is the root?

and "the other pages in the book should belong to these first side."
What is the first side?

Thanks in advance.

'root' is the base or parent of all books.

When you create a bookpage you get a form to fill in.
In the form there is a field with a drop list called 'Parent'.
The first page you create must belong to 'root', this is the only choice for the first page.
Next page can belongs to either root or the first page you created.

Book indexes in drupal 4.4.0 seem to be displayed collapsed by default. Does this version of drupal allow configuring book indexes to be displayed expanded? Thanks in advance.

This question still remains open.

I would like to have seperate books for each section of the website so that the book navigation block remains specific to each section (I have a large site, so linking all of the books into one large book isn't practical in terms of how the navigation block works-- you get a huge unweildly list of everything). If I keep the books for each section seperate, these book nav blocks remain very useful!

But now I'm left without a working index of my book titles/node titles. How can I create a page that returns the title of each book and organizes them by taxonomy? (I'll take any hints or suggestions).

I've already tried the index_page module and many others, but none seem to provide the desired results. Please help. This seems fairly obvious, so please humor me. Thanks again.

This module works great for this purpose, it just needs to add a little taxonomy functionality and multiple indexes!
