The mod didn't work for me on installation, so I sought help in the forum and received a very quick response. The dev team logged into my site and fixed the problem very quickly and effectively, and now I have a great translation system. Works on all aspects of the site - articles, menus, SEO, and so on. Fantastic mod, thanks guys.
First problem I had was that I was unable to actually find where to translate articles. I spent 10 minutes watching a useless configuration video which told me nothing I hadn't found out already. Eventually I found an external site with some instructions.
Next problem was that the language selector module would not work properly. Always displayed in the same position no matter where I tried to move it, and always showing the title even though I had selected hide. Haven't bothered to get support after reading comments on here and certainly won't pay for a ticket.
Tried to uninstall and was greeted with a success message, but it's still showing in my components menu. Went into MYSQL and tried to delete from there but found loads of JF remnants of tables and data and eventually, after 3 hours of getting nowhere, deleted my website and started again. (Luckily nothing in it as yet, so no big deal, but what a waste of time!)
On the whole I like the ext. Although there was no manual to be found, it was intuitive and I could begin adding books in a matter of minutes. The library is formatted ok and the front-end functionality works fine too.
My only quibbles are at the backend, trying to input books. I'm fetching data from amazon.co.uk, and it's not displayed correctly, e.g. sometimes the publisher is wrong, or date of publishing is wrong, or price is wrong. I gather though that these mistakes come from Amazon's end so no fault of the extension, but something to bear in mind when you have to manually alter every book you enter.
Secondly, when the price is fetched, I seem to sometimes get a marketplace price. Often this is a just a few pence, and the price is displayed front end as .15 GBP (for example) - which looks like 15 pounds, not 15p. I have to change all these manually too. It would be better if the extension formatted prices as prices not numbers, i.e with leading zero and two decimal places. A price of 20p is displayed as .2 GBP.
Another annoying point is that books are automatically unpublished when saved - you can't select "publish" when entering the book info. Just another step but when you've got a lot of books it's time consuming.
My work flow is going like this: Add new book- copy/paste ISBN and give my own ID (should be auto if not filled in, imo), select category (should be auto-selected if previously filtered imo), select fetch from amazon.co.uk - SAVE (closes form- need an APPLY button). Re-open form to view fetched data, change to "on my own" for fetching data, correct mistakes (see above), SAVE (again), Click on publish. As far as I can see it would save a lot of time if I could hit APPLY to fetch the data without closing the form, and if I could also select "publish" from the form, or even better configure the ext so that it defaults to "publish".
Having said all that, it is free after all and just what I'm after in terms of frontend.
First of all on ordasoft.com - exist forum - where to you may write about any errors and ask questions.
Bad why you show to us error from Amzon.com? We can't give warranty about correct data what you take from amazon. Amazon.com - work as help for fill book details data.(Thanks for them - they do big work) If it bad for you you may not use it.
