Add Page Numbers to Ensign Conference Talks Online

Postby webmonk » Tue Jan 21, 2014 4:56 pm

We find that people tend to refer to conference issue lessons by page number. This is a problem for people who don't have physical copies of the Ensign because the online talks don't reference which page they start on. I know an easy solution would be to have them reference the title or speaker (as long as they only give one talk). But I thought it would be worth tossing it out as a suggestion to add this to the online talks.

Thanks

The problem with this is that the online talks are ready well before the printed version. I don't think it's likely that the online versions will be delayed until the print version is ready, so someone has to go back and add page numbers after the online content has been published. It can be done, but it means extra work to add page numbers after the content has been published.

I love the idea, their could be many others reason why that might not happen.

I'm running into this problem now while I'm preparing bookmarks for 2016 lessons. We want to add the page numbers for the Conference talks to them but I don't have a physical copy. Maybe you could add a "Get page numbers" button that takes the visitor to a separate webpage with the list of talks and their page numbers.

Does the church still publish the Conference Reports in book form? If so, it would have different page numbers than the Ensign, so complicate adding page numbers to the Gospel Library content. It used to be sent to church leaders after each conference. With easy access from the Ensign and online, it probably isn't needed any more (and certainly isn't widely used).

I think so. The October 2011 Conference Report is available. And yes, they will have different page numbers than the Ensign that follows in the month after each General Conference.
