Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Turning off generation of epub cover

Thanks Nic - you are right that this happens in several places. I have made some progress - I can turn off the generation of the "cover.html" chunk by customising   <xsl:template name="cover">.
I can also remove the itemref "cover" from the OPF spine by customising <xsl:template name="opf.spine">, and remove reference "cover.html" from OPF guide by customising <xsl:template name="opf.guide">.
However, I cannot remove <meta name="cover" content="coverimage" /> from OPF metadata, nor can I remove the items "cover" and "coverimage" from OPF manifest - customising <xsl:template name="opf"> theoretically should work, but customising to select or deselect <xsl:element namespace="http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf" name="meta"> doesn't do anything in the content.opf. Perhaps this is a bug?

Hi Dave

There are several places as far as I can see.  I think there's a good argument for refactoring the code here. There isn't a single parameter that allows the generation of the cover to be disabled as far as I can see. I'm looking to see if any of the code I wrote for a similar purpose can be reused. Can it wait until a weekday? I'm not working on EPUB creation again until Tuesday.

I've thought a bit more about this. Is there one or more pieces of code in the epub docbook.xsl that controls whether a XHTML chunk is created? What I'd like is to add a parameter that gives users the choice of turning off a front cover. If I can find the code that kicks off the writing of a 'cover' chunk, I can customise a param to either select or ignore that piece of code. Any suggestions would be really helpful.

Subject: [docbook-apps] Turning off generation of epub cover

Is there an easy way to turn off the generation of a front cover? I have set up a DB 1.76 NS customisation that always generates a "cover.html". I've tried various options in the epub titlepage (where I have a template name="book.titlepage.recto" similar to the FO titlepage template) by adding a param value that lets a user select the cover on or off, but I'm lost.
What I'd like is to write in an option that allows: no "cover.html" to be generated; and exclude the associated cover image info from toc.ncx and content.opf. I can't follow the logic of covers in docbook.xsl. Any ideas please?
