WebBook and eBook versions, cover, and conversion from Word, 2015. This new edition of a professional book for students and family therapy specialists has its own Integrated Family Therapy website. All book content, including cover, front-matter, chapters, and glossary is presented as HTML pages. Downloads of ePub, Mobi, and PDF versions are also freely available.
The website uses WordPress to manage the organization and presentation of content. I experimented with regular posts, pages, and a custom post type for the book parts before choosing standard posts. While using a custom post type seemed like a no-brainer, simple posts are easy to organize and take advantage of many built-in WordPress features for controlling menus, book sections, navigation, and editing.
Using WordPress also made it easy for the authors to collaborate with each other and with reviewer colleagues. When the book was complete and proofed, with links and images in place on the staging site, I transferred everything to a new live site at their web hosting service.
