Selecting Categories & Strange behaviour on saving 9 Years, 9 Months ago
Karma: 0  
Hi,

I like your product very much, thanks for creating. But i have 2 questions:

I do have a question about the selection of categories. The selection-box shows only 4 rows (see the image attached). Is it possible to change the size to a more convenient number of rows? That you can see for example 25 rows instead of 4? At this moment my library contains a lot of categories (over 3000) so this small box is a bit unhandy.

This is a problem in both versions (version for joomla 1.5 and the version suitable for Joomla 2.5)

My second question:
When i've imported a lot of books (i do not use the amazon-plugin), and i want to change some things (add more categories or description, the program behaves strangely after saving.
This is what it does after saving:

What I've noticed is that something (don't know what) adds an extra slash within the img-url. So the url looks like this
Code:

/components/com_booklibrary/covers//9290.jpg
. Perhap that causes the problem with saving, but I don't know how to solve that. This happens in the version for Joomla 2.5

I work with the pro-versions.

Hello,

About category list size.
I can't say for you where exactly you need change that. Because we use that at much places
You need go through all Book Library files
find row like:
Code:

$clist = mosHTML :: selectList($categories, 'catid[]', 'class="inputbox" multiple', 'value', 'text', $cat_idlist);


and replace it to:
Code:

$clist = mosHTML :: selectList($categories, 'catid[]', 'class="inputbox" multiple  size="10" ', 'value', 'text', $cat_idlist);


About import /export - you need do test export - for books - what you already have. Check file format - check - worked or not import for that file. After that update self file for book import

With image path - if that work - so all good !


Thanks,

Okay, thanks!

Found the line in: admin.booklibrary.php, changed it and now I have more lines.

Will try the export. Problem wasn't always there, BookLibrary worked correctly before, perhaps another Joomla module is causing the problem. Hopefully the check works.
