  2. Improve Book Author Import GH2780/2803

    (1) Set up author bios to get exported/imported the same way that we do the book long descriptions, to avoid the need to truncate them.

    (2) In the Acumen-Plone sync, automatically check the "Show in byline" box for all contacts if there are three or fewer authors on the book's roster. Note that we'll manually update book rosters for this when there are four or more on the book's roster.

  4. 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!

  5. 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."

  6. Add Recommended Reading to Blog Posts SD388

    As a blogger I'd like to be able to add "Recommended Reading" (aka books from the shop) to my blog post so that my readers can easily purchase those books. Great for how-tos, author blogs and book release posts.

  8. FREE INSTRUCTOR DESK COPIES GH1247

    When a volunteer instructor sets up a course, offer them a free text PDF of any Mountaineers Books (MB) title. Also offer them the option of specifying a non-MB text for their course that MB will purchase and fulfill. The instructor would communicate the later text via an email (linked).

    Link instructor-selected required textbooks to courses and have them automatically appear as a separate items in a course registrant's shopping cart. Student has option to remove from cart. Also make adjustments in course "view" to identify both "required" and "recommended" texts.
