Import Content into Pressbooks

17 Import a Web Page or Pressbooks Webbook

Last update: Jul 5/22


You can also import a Pressbook webbook (or web page) using a URL (web address). Before you begin, you will need an existing book shell to import the content into. (See Add a New Book.)

To use this feature:

  1. Select the Import tab from the Dashboard menu.
  2. Select “Web page or Pressbooks webbook (.html or URL)” from the Import Type drop-down list
  3. Select “Import from URL” as the Import Source.
  4. Enter the URL in the available field. If importing a Pressbook, use the URL of the webbook‘s homepage.
  5. Click “Begin Import.”


If importing a Pressbook webbook, the rest of the import process is the same as that for importing a Pressbooks/WordPress file.

There are many ways to get your own editable copy of openly licensed Pressbooks content. For more information, seeĀ Import Options for Pressbooks Content.
