Book Review Library

A book cataloguing and review system designed with bookophiles and librarians in mind.

Ask some!

I have HTML displaying at the top of my page/next to the book cover/somewhere else. How do I get rid of this?

This is most likely because your theme is using the_title in a link or somewhere else. This plugin adds a filter to the_title to display the book's author. To prevent this behavior (and fix your problem), go to the Options page in the Book Reviews menu and disable "Display author with title". The author will no longer display with the book title and will, instead, be displayed with the genre information.

I get a 404 error when I try to view a book review.

Go to Permalinks in the General Settings and just re-save your settings. This will update your .htaccess file and should resolve the problem.

I have *xxxx* problem when I sort by author...

Here are the known issues with sorting by author. Unfortunately, at this time, there isn't much that can be done about most of them because sorting by author is kind of a hack...

Books with multiple authors display multiple times in the list.

Reason: This is because we're doing a separate loop through all the books for each author. When it sees that book with multiple authors again, it will add that as a separate entry.

Workaround: If you have one book that has multiple authors, the easiest solution is to add them as a single author, e.g. "Brad Williams Ozh Richard and Justin Tadlock" -- that way the book will only have a single "author" term associated with it.

When I sort by author, it's sorting by their first name, not their last name.

Reason: This is because each author is entered into the database as a "term", similar to a category. So, while I can make sure that "Orange" comes after "Apple" I can't do anything about "Orange Mackenzie" coming after "Apple Smith" programmatically, because if I tried to feed "Smith, Apple" back into the loop that's being done to pull up the list of books, "Smith, Apple" wouldn't match any entries and no results would be found.

Workaround: If you must have books sorted by author last name, you can add the authors last name first, e.g. "Williams Brad".
