Booktype 2.0 for Authors and Publishers

Getting started

Open the link to your Booktype server in your web browser.

The Home view of Booktype provides an overview of Books, People, Groups and Recent Activity. In the top right corner of this view you will see a link to Sign In, together with a drop-down menu for choosing between the interface languages installed on the server. If your native language is there, you might like to switch to it before continuing.

You can read publicly visible books without signing in, but to write or edit a book you need a user account. Clicking the Sign In link will give you the choice of either signing in or creating an account, if the Booktype administrator allows members of the general public to create accounts for themselves.

Sign in or create account

Once you have signed in, the Sign in box will change to My Profile, and your name will be shown in the top right corner of the page. If your email address has a Gravatar, it will be shown in the My Profile box. Click the My Dashboard button to access your personal page.

Creating an Account

If you don't have an account yet and the Create Account box is visible, you can make one for yourself with the following steps:

  1. Under Create account enter your desired User name, Password, and Full name, then your Email. The security of your Booktype account depends on the strength of the password you set here, so you should avoid using easily-guessed passwords. Your full name is required as it is used for copyright attribution on any works you create or contribute to.
  2. Click the Create account button.
  3. Booktype will generate the new account, sign you in, and redirect you to the Home view.

There has been error in communication with Booktype server. Not sure right now where is the problem.

You should refresh this page.
