Book title on every page

Is there a way to do this, like the paper books do? I am referring to an epub that has already been created or converted.
Thanks,
Paul

Add a Background Image? (and probably kill readability )

There are no 'Pages' unless you kill reflow by using Images of the original page.

In theory, yes. That is what the CSS attribute oeb-page-head is for. So far the good news. The bad news is, that none (AFAK) reading systems actually support it.

Well, i guess its not even in the epUb STandard and the question has nothing to do with SIGIL . Please ask in the ePub Forum, this is the forum dealing with ePub questions! I cant believe that its just so difficult to find a correct (sub)forum for this.

The oeb-page-head IS in the ePUB v2 standard (and also v3). It is just a decision from the manufacturers like Adobe that it is not supported.

And yes, this should be in the ePUB forum.

I agree with Huebi, does not involve Sigil
Moving to EPUB

The question was answered:
Yes, the ePub spec allows for such a thing (oeb-page-head), but the manufacturers of the various reading systems choose not to support it.

@p3aul: Have you considered that one reason for moving it, is that people more knowledgeable about the issue you are asking might hang in THIS forum rather than where it was originally?

Calling people net-nannies for trying to help by moving the question to a more appropriate forum is rather immature.

The question was asked in Sigil because that was the app i was going to use to put the title of the book on every page. See your moderator asked not if I thought the question might be better asked in another forum but arbitrarily put it where *they* thought it belonged. So you see people on the epub forum, probably having no reason to know anything about Sigil would not know if Sigil could do what I asked, which was why I asked in the Sigil forum and not the Epub forum. But who said I was going to use a hardware reader? there are other readers that exist as software that runs on different OS. Before they jump the gun and put it where they want, they should have contacted me. The problem is these "Net Nannies(my word for *all* forum moderators) are interested in assigning posts to where, in their opinion, they belong. The problem is, these Net nannies know so little of the problems(questions asked) they don't really know where they belong. Wouldn't it be wiser, in theis case to let the original poster decide? Just because they have a question to ask doesn't mean they are complete beginners!

And just because I disagree with what seems the majority doesn't mean that I'm immature, just right.

You'd be surprised at how many people who know all about epub also use Sigil....

But I'm not one of them. Maybe some day again.

Of course there are but I was talking about moderators no the people who work with sigil and epub every day. Moderators are just people who like to feel important. That's why I call them "Net Nannies". They want to police everything and enjoy being in charge. If they knew anything, hey would give advise. About the only time you here from them is when they make the pronouncement that they have moved a post because "they" think it belongs in a different forum. I expect any minute to be shut down and this post "Closed"

So the fact that your question was answered before the thread was ever moved is irrelevant?

You're supposed to be able to achieve what you want to do to in theory... but you can't in practice. That's really about it. It has nothing to do a "majority" or hardware vs software reading systems. The oeb-page-head/foot spec just isn't being supported/honored.

Well this isn't the forum where I put the question so I will *not* discuss it here. I happen to like Sigil and it's features and was wondering if the feature I wanted was one of them. I can't control the fact that my post was moved but because it is *not* relevant to this particular forum, I refuse to discuss it here. A Net Nannie can close this thread if he wishes, I will not post in this thread on this forum.

The answer is yes, you can use Sigil to set up what you want. But ADE will not display it.
