External link and Alphabetic index 8 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hi,
I found a problem which concerns probably someone else.

I needed to make menu items which are pointing to specific booklibrary category, so I done that with workaround using EXTERNAL LINK menu item. All went well, but when I follow the "external link" which is pointing to some of the booklibrary's categories the Alphabetic index below the pages isn't working, when you select a letter it shows empty list, no books at all even though there are book with that first letter.

I found out that the letter index works fine with latin symbols ( A,B,C,D....X,Y,Z), even with the external link menu item, but when the book title is in Cyrillic - doesn't work, but only when the menu item is linked to an "external link".

When I set a menu item pointing to let's say all Booklibrary's books and hit a cyrillic symbol (ex. А,Б,В,Г,Д....Ж,З,Ю...) it does filter the books!


EDITED:

The problem is not just with external link!!!!
I just switch the library menu item from Show All Books to Show All Categories and when I navigate into the category with cyrillic symbols and tried to filter the books by letter - it doesn't work either.

Regards,
Bobby!

Well, I’m testing the 4.0 Pro version on a localhost and trying to upgrade the previous 3.x Pro version of Book Library, so you FTP help proposal is not useful at all...

The problem occurs when you have category (and book) names in Cyrillic. Than the function JFilterOutput:tringURLSafe in your router.php file produces empty strings and the books in the respective category cannot be opened.

I saw your advice in the forum to completely remove that function from router.php but this creates ugly web addresses in the browser address bar. A better solution is to replace JFilterOutput:tringURLSafe with JFilterOutput:tringURLUnicodeSLug
Bye the way the alias field in the category edit form does not work at all… Filtering the books with Cyrillic names using the alphabetical index is also not possible (I presume the reason is also connected to the stringURLSafe function)!

And finally, I met another difficulty when importing the books from the previous installation as you have changed the ebook download link description in the XML file.

So, to overcome the problem you have to rename

<ebookURL>...</ebookURL>

to

<ebooks><ebook><location>...</location></ebook></ebooks>

in order to preserve the locations of the previously locally uploaded ebooks.

I’ve been using the Book Library component for many years and I’m pretty happy with some of its features but I think your support and parts of the component code should be significantly improved. Wish you success in this directions!
