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

Some work is going to be done on the ePub stylesheets in August.  Please file a bug report on the DocBook SourceForge site for this item so it can be tracked.
If anyone else has bug reports or feature requests for ePub, please file them soon.

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?
