Bugs in book return and duration of lent books 10 Years ago
I'm currently evaluating your extension (BookLibrary Basic) for the use as a book rental tool for our company before we consider buying the full version.
It took my only 5 minutes to screw up the extension:
I had two rent requests on the same book:
1: 24.05.2013 - 27.05.2013
2: 29.05.2013 - 30.05.2013
After approving both requests it tells me the book is lent on following dates:
2013-05-24 / 2013-05-27
2013-05-24 / 2013-05-31
So why would my sequent lent requests be dated on 24.05.2013 though it's starting on 29.05.2013 ?
Furthermore I have a serious problem with the "book return".
When I declared the first book (24-27.05.2013) as returned, the second lent is still showing in the system and frontend for the users. But I can't return that book - everytime I select the book and hit "return book" it tells me the book isn't lent. But when I try to lend it from the frontend it tells me the book is lent during that period.
Considering I have no possibility to manually delete the second lending period I messed up the book and have no possibility to clean it up.
So there are two incredible critical bugs:
Wrong lending-period when you approve a follow-up request for an already lent book.
You can only return a book one time, if it has approved follow-up requests you're not able to cancel/delete them
Also there is a problem with overlapping lending-periods.
When I requested a book on 25.05.2013 and the same book for 25.05.-28.05.2013 I was able to afterwards approve both requests together and there was no validation for the conflict on 25.05. where two people wanted the same book.
Also there is the book return bug again, if I try to cancel one of those returns.
I'm using the latest edition of BookLibrary from your website on Joomla 2.5
Are those bugs known and is there a solution to it?
Thanks for your support.
