It would be nice to test the working demo. Like muhtefi, the demo is blank for me.

When you drill down to a single book description page does it have a unique URL? I would like each book page to be shareable. Are the URL’s SEO friendly (mod_rewrite enabled)? Did you program it in MVC pattern?

Hello Highexodus,

Yes, the script has separated pages, however there’s no rewritten rules applied. There’s no need for an MVC due to the fact that this is not an advanced script, it just parses some results from Google Book’s api.

are all found books stored in a database?

Hello,

No, the queries are made on Google’s database.

is there also amazon books in it with referral id?

Hello,

Please don’t send the same messages in different threads. Just ask somewhere and wait for a reply. Sadly I’m not aware what are Google Adsense’s terms, but I’ve seen lots of installations with Google Adsense on them.

can we increase the number of book in front page and how ?

Hello,

Yes, you can – you need to alter the maxResults=12 to whatever value you want, this can be done from /sources/welcome.php

Could this script be incorporated into a Wordpress site?

Hello,

Sorry but this was designed as a stand-alone product.

I wonder:

1. Can you show book thumbnails next to the search results?

2. Any way to monetize it? (E.g Amazon book affiliates)

Pre-Purchase Question

Is it possible to place limitations or filters on what books show up during a search query? For example, I have specific books I want users to find and read previews to (if available in Google API)

Hello Portedu,

You can’t show certain books unless you search for those books specifically. The results are being returned by Google’s API. As you’ve probably seen in the demo, for some books there is a book preview demo on the books page.

Hello,

I can use your script without mysql ?

Hello wisdomteethpainrelief,

The software by default it requires mysql to run. But since it’s an API based one and doesn’t save any information on the database, if you have basic php knowledge you could make it work without a database.

Hello,

How to remove external link to google. Also, can you know a way to remove google link in book preview ? Thank you !

Hello wisdomteethpainrelief,

The Google link is embedded in the Book preview, I don’t you can remove it.

To remove the other links, simply edit the book.php file, for example:

$title = '<a href="'.$jsonobj->accessInfo->webReaderLink.'" target="_blank">'.$jsonobj->volumeInfo->title.'</a>';

would become:

$title = $jsonobj->volumeInfo->title;

searched some wellknown books, didn’t find anything. all working well?

Hello Alexmarish,

The software works just fine, however sometimes it runs out of API requests, try searching later, it should show some books on the home-page when the query limit resets.

Alexandru P.

This is not working on the demo/

Book Preview Error: We couldn’t load the Book Preview

Why?

Hello Johrans,

Just a quick update, it works now.

Regards,

Alexandru P.

Thanks, Is it also possible to add your own books (pdf files from url) in this database? or you need to upload it on google books

Let me explain more i would like to create something like : delpher.nl

Hello Johrans,

This is an API based software so it relies on Google’s database to retrieve books. If you add your book on Google’s database, then it will probably be available via the API too.

Hi, How to remove external link to google. Also, can you know a way to remove google link in book preview ? Thank you ! This question was asked before, but can’t find the information you provided…

Hello iamtwigga,

You can remove the external link from /sources/book.php for the volume title, however you can’t (or you shouldn’t) remove the link from the Books preview as I’m pretty sure that link is supposed to stay there.

Regards,

Alexandru P.

Seems when I click the Book’s Thumbnail on the Book page it takes me to the Google Books page, anyway to disable this?

Hello ClashCorp,

Remove the anchor tag from /sources/book.php on line 44.

Alexandru P.
