  3. Limiting amount of text for "Featured Authors" on the homepage GH2795

    On the books homepage (https://www.mountaineers.org/books), some authors will have a lot more text show up on the "Feature Authors" portlet. Can we limit that to only display a maximum of 10 lines (or whatever looks the nicest), perhaps with a "Read More" link to expand the text if needed

  10. Promo Codes: Offer Discount for Books Added via a Registration Process SD425

    As a person registering for a course, course activity, trip activity or an event, give me a discount on any of the books that I added to my shopping cart from the book page shown at the end of the registration process. When I'm viewing the recommended books page, during checkout it will show me the amount of discount I'll receive.

    If I have a member promo code in the same cart, whichever promo code is greater will apply (the better deal). This book promo code will apply even if I register for the course at a different time.

  12. Use different formatting for book title and subtitle in search GH2782

    It is really messy looking at book titles that have subtitles because its all huge font. Also the stars look a little weird.

  13. Please stop commercial offers on this site

    Please stop presenting book offers every time I register for an activity. The big yellow "Proceed to checkout" button, and the tiny "No thanks" alternative, are particularly unsavory. This is a nature association, not a late-night TV sales channel!

  14. Updating the "Reviews" tab

    Under a product page (let’s say: https://www.mountaineers.org/books/books/explore-europe-on-foot-your-complete-guide-to-planning-a-cultural-hiking-adventure) there’s the “Review” tab that we are currently pulling from Goodreads. We are wondering how difficult it would be to have it pull from Acumen instead, where we've been adding Reviews into Acumen: Prod Marketing -> Descriptive -> Review

    Also, we want to keep the star rating from Goodreads. Can those two elements be independent of each other?

    Thanks much!

  16. Bookstore Hours

    I love the bookstore, but wish it was open on Saturdays so that those of us with day jobs could use it more often!

    Most of our members are out playing on the weekends and we are not in a great retail location so Saturdays historically has not been a good fit. Please do review our extended hours on the bookstore page, mountaineers.org/bookstore. Thanks!

  20. Replace Book References and Retire Old Editions SD373

    As a site administrator, I need to be able to replace references to an old edition of a book with a new edition in content items like Activities, Activity Templates, Courses, Course Templates, and Routes & Places.

    Allows customers who purchased an earlier edition to see info about that while ensuring that from now on, everyone purcahses the new edition of the book, because it is showh in the shop and on all details pages with "recommended reading."
