A client just asked us to give section editors access to the Books for Review plugin functionality. Is it possible to implement this? I believe this is not enabled by the current functionality.
Thanks

Hi Octavio,

This would require some modifications to the plugin; however, they need not be extensive. Have a look in particular at plugins/generic/booksForReview/BooksForReviewPlugin.inc.php, which draws together all the resources included in the plugin and hooks it into various parts of the system.

Hi Alec,
Thank you for your response. We will analyze this situation with our client and provide the best solution.
In the meantime is there a way for us to suggest new functionalities? In this case I think it would be good to have this as a standard functionality in the future.
Thanks,
Octavio

Hi Octavio,

We use the forum to collect feature requests, sometimes filing them in Bugzilla. We also welcome code submissions, particularly for 3rd-party plugins.
