Richieste (Requests) / New to this software and also to Joomla
« Last post by MadDad on 15 May 2019, 07:53:15 »
Hello there,
I am not sure if this is a thing on Alexandra or not and have not been able to see anything on the test site, I am looking for a library package where people can borrow books from our home school resources. So I see there is a list and search for books, but I am looking for a package for people to be able to check out the books and even perhaps have an email reminder. So to do this it would required people to register within the package and also to have notifications sent out if overdue etc.
Can Alexandra Book Library do all this?
Also is there configuration and installation documentation for Alexandra?
This looks like an amazing product that I have found today so keep up the good work.
Thanks and hope to hear from you

via the backend options nothing desired of the searchtools could be changed.
After some long research I found an approach here
...components/com_abook/models/search.php, line 250:
Code: [Select]
// $query->order($db->escape($this->getState('list.ordering', 'a.ordering')).' '.$db->escape($this->getState('list.direction', 'ASC')).', a.title');
// commented out and for instance new:
$query->order($db->escape('a.year DESC'));
$query->order($db->escape('a.pag_index'));
This works, but is determined and of course not in the sense of J!

regards

Modify also line 206 and 207
from:
Code: [Select]
.'AND (a.publish_up = '.$db->Quote($nullDate).' OR a.publish_up <= '.$db->Quote($now).') '
.'AND (a.publish_down = '.$db->Quote($nullDate).' OR a.publish_down >= '.$db->Quote($now).')' );
to
Code: [Select]
);
Now it is ok?

I quote out that
Code: [Select]

// .'AND (a.publish_up = '.$db->Quote($nullDate).' OR a.publish_up <= '.$db->Quote($now).') '
// .'AND (a.publish_down = '.$db->Quote($nullDate).' OR a.publish_down >= '.$db->Quote($now).')'
then the search works, but for a click on an archived entry, then unfortunately I get a
View not found [name, type, prefix]: archive, html, abookView
...  :-\

Many thanks for your notice!

To fix this bug you have to modify plugins/search/book/book.php line 198
from
Code: [Select]
.'description AS text,'to
Code: [Select]
.'a.description AS text,'
I will fix the bug in the next release.

Errori (Bugs) / archive search error: Column 'description' ambiguous
« Last post by hymeno on 29 April 2019, 13:02:18 »
hi,

there could be a little archive search error:

Search - Alexandria Book Library
Search in booklists
Archived Books: "On"

that creates with the J!-search a:
Column 'description' in field list is ambiguous

regards,
hym

(latest J! & abbook)

well: now you get the options more sorted:
.../components/com_abook/models/fields/
tags.php
line 56
Code: [Select]
$query->leftjoin('#__abtag_groups AS btg ON btg.id=t.id_taggroup');line 75
Code: [Select]
$query->order('btg.name DESC');
year.php
line 71:
Code: [Select]
$query->order('b.year DESC');:-(( Unfortunately as core-hack. I haven't found an override yet.


but there are still some list problems left:

abbook unfortunately still inserts page breaks for the hit list. But I would like to have everything on one page, i.e. "All" as default display number.

And I also can't access the sorting of the list via backend-options.
I can't find the competent location of the query ...
I would like to sort the titles according to the entries in "Catalog" and "# page index" ...

best

hi,

does anyone have any idea/hint how I can change the order of the pull-down menu options?
where are the relevant queries? In models or view.html I wasn't lucky yet ...

I want to change the year: latest on top
I would like to structure the tags according to their "groups" (like categories)

thx,
hym

( hoping, that searchtools will be visible once under android too ...   :-\ )
