Subject: Book Creator Plugin Problem: Blank page when exporting
hi guys
Im in Education as programmer and writing everything i learn in a documentation. I decided to do this now in a dokuwiki, cause the word file just got too big.
But i need an option to print everything from the wiki, or just several pages.
so i searched for plugins wich make that possible and found only one really good solution: the book creator plugin.
installed it, installed DW2PDF and the text plugin. added the "add to selection" button and already thought it would work..

i can select the pages, then click on "show book" and it shows me a page where i inserted "~~BOOK~~", so that i can click on export and change the order of the pages.
when i want to export it now, it works, but the pdf file i get is blank, just a blank page.
i dont know why this is, what am i doing wrong? >.<!

i NEED the option to print as many pages i need (or probably just everything). without it, its pointless in writing my documentation in dokuwiki.. >.<
hope someone knows a solution

If You have a blank page, You have a problem with the installation of dw2pdf.

ty for ur reply :)
i cant share the link.. its on a local server in the network, and im not allowed to give away the access.. >.<
u are right, probably it IS the dw2pdf plugin, cause i needed to install it manually.. plugin manager failed to install it

but i dont know, when i add some pages to selection, and then want to "save the selection", it says me that i dont have anything selected. but i see all the selected pages on the left side..
is it probably a problem with javascript or something?..

It may be that the mpdf inside dw2pdf is not very stable on errors. You have to make sure that the document you want to transform has no HTML errors, no missing links and so on. You could try upgrading the mpdf part of the plugin (I have a newer version running with siteexport and it works good in my environment) - If the Plugin generates a PDF file try to open it with a texteditor. maybe there are php error in there as well.

To handle errors better than dw2pdf and mpdf, I made a wrapper for siteexport to output errors into a logfile - so they won't mess with anything inside the resulting PDF file.
