I was curious if anyone has utilized WordPress as a Member Only Ebook.
I plan to protect my member-only WordPress installation with Amember or equivalent, but I think there are some huge benefits to using WordPress in this application over the standard PDF.
- Each page is search engine friendly
- If not logged in, user and search engine bots will see the_excerpt teaser along with "BUY! BUY! BUY!" propaganda
- Management of pages is mega easy in the Wordprss admin
- Pasting pages from Open Office with formatting works extremely well with the WordPress WYSIWYG editor
- Manipulating wordpress utilizes standard php, html, and css which I'm very familiar with. MediaWiki requires learning a whole new system.
- WordPress is not setup by default to handle book style navigation
- I have no clue how to create and manage a table of contents automatically and may have to do this manually
Has anyone attempted to use WordPress in a book style CMS? Are there any better solutions out there that meet my needs? Any clue how I could go about book style navigation?
