In this article we will take a look at Book Suggestion submission from the frontend in Book Library Manager, book lending software.

The user can enter a Title for their suggestion and enter the suggestion itself in a free text box. Once everything is filled in, the user clicks on the Save button on the bottom of the form. The Suggestion will be submitted to the backend. If you have allowed Suggest Book for Guest users in Settings Frontend, then Guest users will see a CAPTCHA image underneath the form and a text box where they have to enter the code generated. Registered users will NOT see a CAPTCHA.
At the moment the Suggestion flow is rather crude. The user enters a suggestion and the Admin views it in the backend. The Admin will have to look up the book manually and enter it into the Books manager manually. In the next we will see at managing Book Suggestions in Book Library.
