bol.com search not working in BOOKPEDIA

Postby bvanbranden » Sat Aug 19, 2017 7:19 am

The bol.com search (bol.com is the most important bookseller in the Benelux, much more influential and better then amazon) is no longer working properly. Most fields do not match anymore, and other fields are filled in incorrectly. Worst, the ISBN number one uses to search is not copied into the ISBN field when found !

So, not working fields:

- Publisher: no entry
- Place published: no entry
- ISBN !!!: no entry
- Comments: no entry
- Language: no entry
- translator: field value is always entered in double.
(all these fields were working fine a few years ago).

This makes Bookpedia basically quite useless in the Benelux.

Thank you for the bug report on the search plugin. Specially for listing the exact issues, so that I can take a look. I will update the plugin as necessary. I do know they made recent changes and starting delivering their mobile version to Bookpedia, that does not include some of the information such as publisher and have to try to get that back.

But please do try the beta version as I have made changes a few weeks ago according to my work log.
