    Hello,
    I have a question : many publishers have different imprints (not sure about this word, in French we call them “collection”). For example
    French Publisher Gallimard has a set of collections called
    Découvertes cadet, Découvertes benjamin, Découvertes Gallimard ,…

    Unless I am mistaken, There is no field dedicated to the imprints. Maybe it is more a French thing…..What is your input on that matter?

    That’s a good question.

    I would suggest using the publisher name to list both the publisher name and imprint (or maybe just imprint, with the publisher noted somewhere else?) for now. I will consider how I can add imprint to the plugin.

    Thanks for your reply and suggestion. We will follow your advice.

    I have another question about the Publishers’field:
    the publisher field appears when the book is displayed, which is fine
    (https://www.sylben.net/book/magellan/)

    but it seems impossible to click on the publisher’s name and get all the books printed by this publisher…..
    I would like to check with you if I miss something or if it just isn’t possible
    Thks in advance for following up with me

    You didn’t miss anything. It’s on my list to add in the future. 🙂

    This has been added in version 4.5. There’s a new page in the settings menu to add Imprints and you can assign books to imprints. Imprint will display below the publisher on the book page.

    I know it’s not perfect because Imprints are tied to publishers (so one Imprint wouldn’t belong with multiple publishers) but it works for now.

    Tha’s wonderful, THANK YOU!!!
    It is exactly as we expected :)!! It is not a problem at all (for us) that Imprints are linked to publishers 🙂

    Just one more question: in French, Imprints is called Collection. Could you please advise: Is there a way we can replace imprints with the word ‘collection’ in our version of Mooberry?
    Thanks

    Glad it’s working for you!

    Here is the website where MBM is translated: https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/fr/default/wp-plugins/mooberry-book-manager/

    I’m not 100% sure how the process works… I think you need to be approved to become a translator. So I think the options are (a) wait for one of the existing translators to update the new text with translations or (b) apply to become a translator so you can update the text yourself.

    Sorry I don’t have a better answer for you!
