Indicating 'unread posts' or 'new posts in topics since topic last viewed' is a good idea.

Hi Ron - sorry I didn't see this post here but we have spoken about this since anyway. Is it at all possible for this forum to show new unread postings or is that too awkward/difficult? Cheers.

This is still not settled; I got a message response from Andy but I am still not sure what to expect. Could you send a file with those other media type included? I'll see what gets written out in your configuration.

Thanks!

Yes, let me talk to Andy. Although this needs to work for UIEE in general, we will make sure it does so with BT. I have no idea where BT maps the 'cover' field.

ETA: I've got 3.4.93, and they do not show up in the Cover field. The Type field under that selection has the terms I noted earlier (but no 'VHS', rather is says 'Video Tape'). Very odd.

Hi - I've got 3.4.93 and those choices show under the 'cover' field. But I don't know whether we all use same versions - I've only used for a year I think. Maybe you should have a chat with Andy?

Really? What version do you have? I was looking at the binding selection.

Hi Ron - I've got Audio Cassette, Audio CD, DVD and VHS Tape as choices in BT. Thanks - will pass on site details to cd seller I know.

Karen, I'm adding this right now for UIEE. Do you know the complete set that BT uses (viz dvd, audio cd, cassette, etc)? (Maybe I'll fire up BT and see what the drop down choices are.)

If someone sells just CDs or DVDs, they are welcome to list here. We'll also update the manual entry screen to select book/CD/DVD/etc. When the search options show up it will look much nicer.

Thanks!

ETA: It looks like BT uses Audio Tape and Video Tape instead of Cassette and VHS. Is this what you see?

Hi Ron - Have just had a quick look and they're appearing as vhs/audio cd in the binding field. Sometimes in brackets too on the title. I'm using Booktrakker and it all looks ok so, as long as it's allowed then I'll leave them. How about sellers that just sell cd's - are you interested in them listing here? cheers.

Yes, VHS, CDs and DVDs are fine, but we don't have the search and display support for that yet. You should use CD or VHS or DVD for the binding. Or does your software do something different?

You're using UIEE, and I believe all records will be given the Book indication. But what we will add in the uploader logic is a check on the binding... if any of VHS, DVD, CD, (Audio) Cassette match we will apply the correct category. Then, when the search is implemented, your listings will appear in the correct place.

For now, all categories are always searched. We'll probably add a 'limit search to books; CD; DVD; etc.' Or whatever the members think works best.

Give us a day to add this to the upload logic.

I've got some vhs/cd's in my listings - not very many but a few. Thought I should check whether that is okay?
