Search for text not ISBN to fetch info from Amazon 6 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 0  
If I understand correctly to fetch an item's information from Amazon it is necessary to enter the ISBN, but you can't just search for an item and choose from the search results.

It would be nice if it were possible to search for a title and/or author and/or ISBN (as you would do it on Amazon directly), have the results displayed in a list, view an item (to see if it is the correct book, CD, or so), and select it to take over the values into your own database.

Is there any progress for this feature? If this were implemented and looked promising I'd buy MediaLibrary immediately.

Let us know!

In addition to having this feature in the back-end I'd very much like to have a menu type "Add new media" (or book) for the front-end. This way I could allow non-Admins to add books or media. Would be great!

Hello,

Add Search not only by ISBN - not so simply as we want. Please order so custome version through Contact Form and all other users quickly take so features. (We will try give for you so small price as will can.)

Add new book/media - from frontend - that feature owners BookLibrary / MedialLibrary Pro and Shop versions already have.

Thanks,
OrdaSoft team

Are there any updates re searching for books by author or title, when adding new books on the backend page?

Also, if there is no ISBN or ASIN number to match the book can you add the details manually? There is an option "Fetch information on your own", but when you choose this and click Save and Close it still asks for the ISBN number.

Hello,

Sorry, now media search only by ISBN or ASIN.

When you set "Fetch information on your own" - you may type any ISBN e.g. 00000

Thanks,
