frustrating error messages

We've recently converted a manuscript to epub (with lots of help from users on this forum) but when we check the document we get two error messages and no clue as to how to fix them.

The messages are:

OEBPS/Images/CHOICES-cover.jpg This resource is present in the OPF <manifest>, but it's not reachable (it's unused).


OEBPS/Text/Section0001.xhtml ID value 'heading_id_12' is not unique

Cover.jpg is the cover of the book and it show ok when you look at the epub so we're not sure why it says its not reachable.

We've also looked at the document in code view and can see only one mention of 'heading_id_12' so no idea why its saying its not unique. Can anyone help?

The cover image is not linked from somewhere, that's why it is unused.

For the heading, just remove all headings (search for ' id="heading_id_[0-9]+"' without the ' and replace it with nothing), then regenerate the TOC.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply. Re the headings issue: are you saying that where, for example it says

<h1 id="heading_id_25"><span class="sgc-3">Chapter 1</span></h1>

I should remove all the data around Chapter 1 so that I'm left with

<p>Chapter 1</p>

I've just tried that and it couldn't generate a TOC. Obvioulsy I'm getting the wrong end of the stick here. Can you clarify please?

As an example, where it says <h2 id="heading_id_26">Chapter 2</h2>
what do I delete and what do I leave?

As WS64 said, search for: (notice leading space)
Code:
 id="heading_id_[0-9]+"
Replace with blank, then regenerate TOC

So
<h1 id="heading_id_25"><span class="sgc-3">Chapter 1</span></h1>

will become
<h1><span class="sgc-3">Chapter 1</span></h1>

Still leaving the <h#> tags, which will be picked up in the regeneration

Cover.jpg is the cover of the book and it show ok when you look at the epub so we're not sure why it says its not reachable.
Is Cover.jpg the cover or is CHOICES-cover.jpg the cover? Where does it show? In Sigil? In another reader? EPUB supports specifying a cover that is used by readers but is never used in the actual book.

Thanks. That makes sense. As for the first part of my posting, any ideas why we're getting an error that says:

OEBPS/Images/CHOICES-cover.jpg

This resource is present in the OPF <manifest>, but it's not reachable (it's unused).

cover.jpg is the cover of the book and, when the document is transferrred to a reading device, the book appears with the cover. Any idea how we can fix this?

As user_none said - the error message says CHOICES-cover.jpg is missing, and you are saying the file name is cover.jpg

My apologies, the file name for our cover image is CHOICES-cover.jpg. I've been told we have to declare the file in OPF so that we can get rid of the message. Is this straight forward to do?

You have the image in you OPF, but you don't use it in any xhtml files. Therefore the message 'is not used'.
