Introduction

Books & Libraries, Amazon, Booking, Living, Booking & Reservations

BookLibrary is a powerful book extension. Book component provides a full-featured book library or book collection management environment on a Joomla-based website. Book manager allows you to manage large book libraries. Library manager can also be used to easily set up a book selling shop using Amazon if you want. With an Amazon Associates ID (as an Amazon affiliate) you can earn credits with book sales through Amazon, while Amazon takes care of the handling and shipping.

Great Work



Posted on 21 February 2008
This plugin is fantastic.



There have been a few bugs, and i have reported some and fixed others and shared the fixes with the authors for the next version.



There are other great modules and addons for this.

Great work by the authors, look forward to seeing the next version, and contributing to this project as best I can.
Hi



I am using this on a site for a mountaineering club to display a list of books. It works pretty well, and is certainly way better than a static list.



I have found a few 'bugs' though, the worst of which is that the 'lend' functionality from the front end does not work at all if you restrict it to registered users.



Its also a shame that books cannot be added to the library from the front end. We have a 'librarian' in the club whom I have had to enable back-end access for so he can maintain the list of books.



It would be nice if there were support for DVD's in there as well.



I guess its a fairly new component, and I look forward to it evolving!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. It is better to post bugs you find in the component support forum, as we are already working on a new improved version. That way we can include the fixes...

How to use



Posted on 12 January 2008
Thanks to Rob, I now know how to use this component.

You can see what the component is for on this site: to show a collection of books on a website (whether virtual or a real library), with possibility for lend requests and reviews by users.

http://www.joomlawebserver.com/books/index.php



The component is quite easy to use:



- Install the component

- Configure backend and frontend settings in the admin

- Create a menu link to the component (Menu manager in Joomla)

- in the backend, create a book category

- Go to "manage books"

- Enter a new book using "New" button



Tip:

You can look up book ISBN numbers on Amazon or some other book site. With ISBN numbers entered in the book, you don't need to enter all book details manually but can pull them in from Amazon. You can of course enter book details manually also, if you want.



- Save the book



Once you have the book saved, select the book in BookManager

- Click "Refetch information" (twice, also on next page)

This will download the info from Amazon for that book.



- Now in "Book Manager" publish the book.



That's it, you're done. The book will now show up in the frontend in your site in the category you created.

wonderful component



Posted on 04 January 2008
This is an amphibian like component to display your books. I mean, at one side, it can accept the book infomation entered by you manually; at the other side, it can retrieve the book information automatically from amazon.com, you ONLY need specify the ISBN numer of that book.



The most important thing is, it can implement your Amazon Associate Tag and let you got rewarded if someone click your book link and buy a book from amazon. So you can built a small bookstore in minutes to make money from amazon online bookstore as an affiliate.

Good Component

Well, very good job.
