  4. Pre-order/Backorder vs. Shopping Cart Clarification GH3072

    As a user, when pre/backordering something show me a notification that this process is separate from my other items (if I have other available items in my cart).

    I'd like to see some sort of alert during/before reaching "/delayed-shipping" page that back/pre orders are not processed at the same time as the rest of the items in my cart. Reason being I'd like to avoid confusion during/after user has input all their information.

    Ideally, is it possible to...
    1) Check if the cart is currently empty (if so, proceed as usual)
    2) If cart /= empty, perhaps an in-frame pop-up?…

  5. Adding a "Related Items" section for additional information on Book product page GH3074

    Add a new tab alongside "Description" "Video" and "Reviews" for related items, especially blogs.

    The idea is to present complementary content when the product page is the landing page, esp. considering the % of our page sessions are from New Users.

    Aside from links to our blog, other items could be downloads, related events* -- it's also why I don't want to just call this tab "Blogs," as it doesn't necessarily reflect the full scope.

    *Though personally, I think this should be its own tab, and would be pulled automatically from Author Events calendar.

    I thought about just linking whatever…

  6. Default billling address for "checkout as guest" GH2975

    When a user buys books or merchandise and checks out as a guest, use the shipping address they entered as the billing address on the page where we collect their credit card information. Or maybe it's better if we add a "Billing address is same as shipping address" checkbox above the billing address fields. This seems like the better, more common user experience.

    Do this for:
    - Checking out without logging in, the multi-item "regular" shopping cart
    - Placing a pre-order or backorder as a guest, the single-item shopping cart

  7. Adding a Section/Tab to Books for Awards GH3073

    An idea we had some time ago was creating an Awards tab, much like "Descriptions" "Reviews" "Video" -- but at the time we decided against it because we thought it would be best to highlight it in the Description field anyways.

    But now that the feed to our 3rd parties are being more restrictive on the level of HTML we can have, the above argument against holds a lot less ground.

    My appetite for fighting for this addition depends heavily on how easy it is to implement, and especially so in context with whether it can be implemented easily along…

  8. Improve Author-Book Relationship in Acumen and Plone GH3050

    In some cases, we have a contributor who has one role on one book and another role on another book (e.g. "by" and "Foreword by"). In these cases we end up with multiple contact records for the same contributor. In Plone, we have this covered with the "member," "book," and "book roster." In Acumen, we need to be sure that we have only one contributor record and use the "override role" field when their contribution is different from their primary role.
