How to adjust page breaks in multi-page PDFs.

Adjusting page breaks

By default, each chapter and sub-chapter in a Book-PDF is started on a new page. To avoid these page breaks and to create a continuous chapter flow, an administrator can add the following code to the page MediaWiki:Common.css:

/*PDF Book - no page breaks  */
.bs-page-content, .bs-page-content.booklevel-1, .bs-page-content.booklevel-2 
{page-break-after: avoid; page-break-before: avoid;}

If you want to start the main chapters on separate pages, use this code instead:

/* multi-page PDF breaks after each main chapter */
.bs-page-content { page-break-after: avoid; page-break-before: avoid; }
.bs-page-content.booklevel-1 { page-break-before: always; page-break-after: always; }

Note: These settings apply both to the PDF output of books and to the PDF export which includes linked pages or subpages of a wiki page.
