Adding HTML links for e-book links

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

We would like to add e-books in our library with direct links to their respective PDFs. We were not albe to add any HTML codes to the book entries, in order to create a hyperlink to the e-book download.

Any solution for this? I suppose that libraries will all go digital soon and therefore consider this very important.

    Somewhere around 2004 I suggested a quick and dirty code change in one of our forums that is capable of creating a link in the biblio_view.php page. I don't have a direct link to find the code, sorry. You can try the search function. Sadly no one ever improved that incomplete code and I did not have the opportunity to spend time on it. I might be persuaded when offered a paid assignment, but frankly it would be wiser to spend time and money to make our newer code branch 10-wip ready for production. In the old code (current release cycle) the linking feature would suffer from a bug that is already fixed in the newer code branch.

    If I would expect that libraries will all go digital soon, I would not be developing OpenBiblio at all.

    If you think your library will go 100% digital soon, switch to a different solution. Suggestions? Invenio, Greenstone

    I may be overlooking the obvious, but I can't seem to find the code change to which you are referring. The link above seems to only connect to a "Thanks" message which I am sure is deserved. Any guidance?

    There used to be more (older) messages in the linked discussion. I tried to find them without result. Perhaps I scared them away because I called them quick and dirty.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
